The title I just want to share this with you was put on my heart this past weekend during my study about the early church. I’ve been studying the book of Acts for the last four weeks and the Holy Spirit led me to go back and re-read a couple of the chapters. The book of Acts was never one that I got into studying before, but I’m so glad that I got into it.

It may seem as if the desire of your heart is never going to come to pass, but God’s delay is not necessarily denial. You asked for God’s will, you’ve turned into a prayer warrior, you’ve invested your last dollar into the plan, and you’re implementing all the latest success strategies. As soon as momentum builds, things slow back down to a turtle’s pace.
VIDEO – This video will discuss 6 reasons why God is silent. Do you have those moments when you are not hearing from HIM? When this happens, you can feel lost, confused, alone, afraid, and like you’ve been abandoned.
It’s time to make a bold move right now. Some years back, I studied the book of Esther inductively through Kay Arthurs Precepts International course. However, there was something Kay and another commentary author pointed out that I didn’t notice during my reading.

If not, please look back over your life and see how far God has bought you dear friend. You’re here because of His love, grace, and mercy is working on your behalf and working things out for good.
