There are times when silence is the more eloquent of expressions.
I view silky silence as I do bold wisdom. When God is silent, His wisdom is likened to the silent flash of lightning, His expressive activity as to the thunder as it detonates it’s power. While we silently wait, knowing God will act, we can rest assured when He acts it will be with an incisive power He alone can deliver. The attributes of His wisdom and strength, displayed in the attribute of His Silence, one for which He is rarely praised, being so often misunderstood. I will sing of God’s attributes. His silences as well as the manifold more praised.
Silence, ma amour.
Silence, I am enraptured
By the tenderness of your touch.
Silence, you sway me
With gentle measures of your caress.
Silence, you so convince me
Of those attributes unknown.
Your eloquence persuasive, expressive,
Articulate, lyrical, soft and sweet.
Billowing with elucidation of
Heartfelt care, silence, my love,
You are the purview that quicken
My senses to become receptive, gracefully aware
To know my Savior is drawing oh, so near.
My soul, wait in silence for God only,
For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation,
My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
On God my salvation and my glory rest;
The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. -Psalm 62:5-7 (NASB)
