I enjoyed part three of this series, but my Dear Boy, from his mission in Africa, wraps up this series perfectly!
Recall my first three blogs in this “series”. If you haven’t read them yet, go back now and read them, because this blog series only works if it is read in order.
In the first part, I discussed the difficulty we all have in varying degrees with God’s apparent absence and silence. I talked about the suffering of Job and how God responded to that suffering. But today, when we suffer, we don’t even get a response from God like Job did. All we get many times is silence; and the lack of God’s presence today is discouraging to some who do not believe in God. They think that such a loving God should show Himself in order to give everyone the opportunity to believe in Him. Why doesn’t it work that way? Why does God choose to withdraw Himself from the world and be silent?
