Silent and Still

O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. (Psalm 83:1)
What we perceive to be silence from God is not a sign God is ignoring our plight, but that He is waiting for the perfect time for Him to respond to our request. God is always working on our behalf.
If God hasn't answered your prayers, it may be because it's not the right time for God to do so. While we wait, we must trust in God's divine plan and perfect timing. Those who wait on the Lord will be blessed.
Help me to wait patiently for you to respond to my requests. May I never take matters into my own hands and move outside Your perfect will for me. Forgive me for getting frustrated when things do not change according to my will. I know You have a plan and a purpose for my life, and I trust You to carry it out in Your perfect timing.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
