Psalm 136 begins, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.” Then it recounts the Lord’s good works. He led them through the wilderness. He made them to pass through the Red Sea. We need to give thanks for the going through. It’s part of His lovingkindness towards us.
Give Thanks When God Is Silent
Thank God for His silence, for His delay, for His leaving you in anticipation of His next move. The burden of knowing His thoughts, His ways, is too much for you. His thoughts are too heavy for you. They could crush you. He will give you what you can carry, what you can handle. Wait for Me to bring to you what comes next. Don’t carry it in the form of worry or despair. Release the future to Him (He holds it in His hand anyway) and thank Him for the silence.
