3 Reasons God Is “Silent” Towards You

Why is God silent

Psalm 62:5

In Hebrews 4 we learn that Jesus Christ is our great high priest. This means that Jesus, God himself, mediates for us as we seek to come into the presence of God. So the first key to hearing the voice of God is to come before him through Jesus Christ, for without Christ we can’t truly have a relationship with God. As Hebrews 4:14-16 beautifully expresses:

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. .  . . Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

There are many other ways to tell, however, that someone’s identity is truly rooted in Christ. Here are 3 ways you can tell if you are truly finding your identity in Christ. These points can also help you gauge whether or not someone else is rooted in Christ so you do not become unequally yoked (2 Corinthians 6:14).

married the wrong person

Proverbs 19:3

This is one of those articles that you have to read the whole thing because I will be answering this question from different angles. In one sense God will let you marry the wrong person but in another sense God will not let you marry the wrong person. Much of the confusion that will undoubtably occur in the comment section below will be based on language and misunderstanding how we are using phrases to mean different things.
