Unanswered prayer or the perceived silence of God in the midst of suffering is one of the most difficult things to endure, yet it is something that every believer has experienced. There is a way forward in these hard times. Join Stasi today as she talks about this subject head-on and leads us to the truth that though we are not promised a life free from sorrow, we are promised that our God will be with us in it…with us, in fact, in every moment of our lives.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV) — Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Romans 8:38-39 (NIV) — For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Matthew 26:39 (NIV) — Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
Colossians 1:24 (NIV) — Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.
Hebrews 13:5 (NIV) — Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV) — The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
