The silence of God was deafening. Where was God? Why, just a few months earlier you were so happy. Life was good and the family was doing great. You had a heart of gratitude and praise for God.
Now you find yourself going through a crisis. Hard times are here and you feel a sense of desperation. It's as if all your efforts are in vain. You prayed but what did you find? A closed door and nothing but silence.
Have you ever experienced the silence of God? You cried out to Him and there seemed to be no answer. Why does it sometimes seem as though God is present in our time of prosperity but so very absent in our time of trouble?
