We have all heard someone say, “I am at my wits end or I am at the end of the rope!” This means the person has reached their limit to dealing with a particular problem or person. Sometimes these sentences are used when someone is at their wits end with a person, job, ministry, or a relationship.
You have cried out to God, but He appears to be silent. This is not a comfortable place for anyone during their life. They pray, but no answer. They fast, but no answer. They worship and adore God, but no answer. You are wondering where is God and how long will He be silent in answering your prayers to the situation
In this particular scripture, Aspah has cried out to God, but God seems to be silent. Aspah has lifted up his hands and surrendered, but still no response from God. He cried and prayed so much until he had no words to speak.
We all have had a period in our lives when we wondered where God was in the midst of our storm. We wondered if God had forgotten about us. It is during these times we must trust God when we can’t trace Him. Therefore, know that when God is silent, he is working on your behalf and making you rely on Him for everything.
I must remind myself that even when you are silent you are working on my behalf. This is your way of making me trust You and only You. God, when I cannot trace You I will trust You.
