{ Day 329 }

I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. —Psalm 27:13-14

God's personality is infinite in its complexity and creativity. We think of God as being perfect in every way. God has a divine personality, perfect in His wisdom, love, and goodness. His dealing with each of us is in terms of building a relationship of love. But more often than not, our monolithic misunderstanding of how God should act in a given circumstance sometimes causes His action to seem contrary to our way of thinking. One of the things we should learn from the Gospels is that Jesus often did not answer people in the way we think our Lord should have. Then, when we think He should have answered, He was silent. At times when we suppose He should have intervened, He was inactive. If for no other reason than this, prophetic ministers should be careful not to presume what God should say or do in any given situation.


Keep me, Spirit, from drawing conclusions about Your ways. You are infinitely more wise and knowing than I could ever understand. I will patiently wait to see what You have planned for me and for Your people.

We sometimes draw wrong conclusions from
God's silence or His presumable lack
of intervention on our behalf.
