The Silent Treatment (Job 23:8-14)Bo Grace, November 26, 2017
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We live in a world that is filled with noise, and many of us are dependent upon it. Silence is often uncomfortable. Some of you cannot be at home without the TV being on… even if you are not watching it. Just look around at all the people who have on earphones… when they work, when they drive, when they are trying to go to sleep. It seems that silence has become something we avoid.
Have you ever been at a point in your life when it seemed as if God was giving you the SILENT TREATMENT? Sometimes it is in a crisis and no matter how hard you pray, you just cannot hear from God. The title of the message today is: THE SILENT TREATMENT, and it is all about those times when you just cannot hear from, or experience the presence of God.

8Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: 9On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: 10But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. 11My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined. 12Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food. 13But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth. 14For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him. (KJV)
