Without a compass we can easily go astray. Even as Christians, if we lose sight of God's will, we can easily veer off course into dangerous territory. So, if you've been pursuing God but recently experienced silence or a long "lull", Just stop!
1 - Recalibrate your internal compass before proceeding. (Pray and ask God for wisdom).
2 - Wait, listen and then receive your direction from the Lord. (Don't fall into the temptation of figuring out life alone).
"The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him." (Psalm 37:23 NIV)
(Don't attempt to lead God....Let HIM lead you!
P.S. Often God's silence is a result of our disobedience. Perhaps, He has already told you to do something. However, you haven't quite gotten around to doing it yet. (God's silence has a way of getting our attention.)
Additionally, God's silence may be confirmation that He's working out the details of your life. If you've been praying according to the principles and promises of God's word (the Bible), just hold on. Your answer IS coming. Anything worth having takes time!
No matter what your situation, just know that, "If God is for you, who can be against you?" (Romans 8:31 NIV).
