When God Goes Silent

Released June 15, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


Many Christians pursue deeper encounters with God. The God of the bible is highly interactive. In fact, God so desired interaction with humans that He became one of us in the person of Jesus Christ. God the Son experienced what it meant to be fully human. Ultimately, Jesus was born, lived, grew, died and arose so that God might interact with us forever as His children. But what do we make of those times when God is anything but interactive with us? What are we to think of those seasons wherein God goes silent on us? In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, Jeff unpacks the single most bewildering Jesus ever had with an individual. This account is found in only place in the Gospels, and there is nowhere else in the account of Jesus’ life that looks remotely similar to how He interacted with the woman in this passage. From this account, we are enlightened and empowered to understand what to make of God’s seasons of silence in our lives. There is so much good fruit that can come to us when the interactive God of Heaven goes silent on us on earth.  Additional resources are available at TransformingTruth.org
