The Solution to Silence

February 29, 2012

O God, do not keep silence;
do not hold your peace or be still, O God!

What if we’re the ones God wants to use to break the silence?  What if, instead of (or, in response to) crying out to God, we raise our voices to defend the weak and oppressed?

I’m so complacent, so prone to crying “Why me, Lord?!’  Sometimes I wonder if God should respond, “Yeah, you’re right, why you? I’ll take it all away, now.”

Perhaps we should do a little less crying and a little more time defending those without a voice.
