Where Is God When: He Doesn’t Answer (PT II)

Pete joins us to continue looking at where God is when He doesn’t answer – when we ask, and all we hear is silence.

We look at the life of Jesus – and three examples of the answers God has already given us in Him

 

Where Is God When: He Doesn’t Answer

Our friend Pete from Grace Valley Church join us, and takes us through Mark 1:1-8, and looks at where God is, even when He is silent when we call out to Him. Often, when we call out to God, we are really asking God to reveal Himself on our terms – we are looking for good news on a superficial level, not actually wanting to encounter God. In looking at where God is in times of silence, we also need to look in the mirror and examine where our own hearts are. To better check our hearts, Pete takes us through 3 points from the preaching and life of John the Baptist we can apply.

For additional reading, look at Psalm 88.

Where Is God When: His People Are At Their Wits’ End

Where is God When: His people face oppression

Nevin explores Psalm 94 to address where God is when His people face oppression. God will prevail against His enemies and bring rescue for His people.
