The Power of Waiting Silently in God

 The Lord will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm.” Ex.14:14 AMP.

Good morning friends, What a great weekend we had in God’s presence; we appreciate these in-person Sunday celebrations. I am renewed and empowered again. I am looking forward to the good things in store for us this week. I trust you had a great peaceful weekend. I believe God for great miracles and breakthroughs this week for everyone who has been praying and waiting silently in God.

Today I want to talk about the power of learning to practice silence at the edge of a breakthrough. I have observed that when we have been praying, and we are just about to receive victory, the enemy tends to put pressure that presses the panic button in us, and one starts speaking against what they have been praying and waiting for God to manifest.

Israel’s nation had been praying and waiting for over 400 years for God to rescue them out of the Egyptians’ hands. But when they were at the edge of a breakthrough, they faced a predicament, whereby the enemy was pursuing them, and it appeared as though there was nowhere to escape because they had the red sea in front of them, and surrounded by mountains and the Egyptian army was chasing after them.

At that moment, they lost faith in God; they could not see how He was going to rescue them out of that situation, so they panicked and started to complain, and were ready to give up. That also happens to us as believers, after we had been earnestly praying, waiting patiently for God, and when are at the edge of a breakthrough, the enemy starts putting all types of pressure that cause all kinds of confusion and fear, and we find ourselves confessing defeat and failure upon our lives.

Most of the time, we lose the Breakthrough, and it’s the most saddening time in the believer’s life. That is when the enemy attacks the mind and put doubt and fear. And when the believer is full of fear and doubt, the battle is automatically lost to the enemy.

Today I want us to learn from the leadership of the prophet Moses. He told the Israelites to be silent and hold their peace, and not say anything, and that was the only way they were going to see victory. I am aware that this post might not be for everyone, but for those who know they are just at the edge of a breakthrough, and they sense pressure rising from all around them.

May I encourage you to wait silently before God, do not speak prematurely. Learn to meditate in your heart and not allow the pressure to make you lose your faith in God. May I encourage you to guard what you say during this time because the enemy is waiting to hear the words of fear come out of your mouth so he can execute them over your life, while the angels of God are waiting for you to continue to believe and confess words that will bring life over the situation!

May I encourage to learn from the Lord Jesus, in Mark chapter 4 verses 37 to 39, when they told Him that the boat was sinking, He did not panic, He silently woke up and quieted the storm, and immediately there was a great calm.
There is the power that comes with silently waiting in God amid the storm. Most of the most significant victories are fought silently in God because it gives Him full control to win the battle. When we are calm, our faith becomes more robust than when we allow situations to shake.

May you receive strength for this week, and I pray that God grants all your prayers, and may gain victory as you wait silently for God alone.

My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God.

Psalm 62: 5-7 NKJV

Thank you for reading. Many blessings to you!

  1. Very powerful and true post. I hate to admit it but I have trouble doing this sometimes and allow impatience to overtake me. It’s definitely something I need to work on. Thank you for the reminder! 🙂


  2. Wow, Sister Grace. It’s amazing how we are both saying the same thing, but using different examples. In other words, we are both talking about being “tempted” to think negatively when we should be holding on the God’s truth about the matter. Here’s how you said it: “Most of the time, we lose the Breakthrough, and it’s the most saddening time in the believer’s life. That is when the enemy attacks the mind and put doubt and fear. And when the believer is full of fear and doubt, the battle is automatically lost to the enemy.” And here is how I said it: “Did you know that the more you think about not yielding to temptation (the bad things), the more you do think about temptation? In other words, it becomes an all-consuming fire inside of you. The thing that is tempting becomes subliminal in your mind. (“Subliminal” is a marketing technique used to influence a person to act upon something.) So, you see, you are not helping yourself at all when you think about how to avoid temptation. All you are doing is reinforcing its strength.” I appreciate your ‘Like’ on my recent blog. Fill free to leave a comment here and also on my blog.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read this post; I appreciate your contribution. I have read your post; it’s full of insight. I can see a parallel meaning in the message; I don’t realize it at first.

  3. Amen Sister. We need to keep our eyes on God who is faithful to His word and not even listen or watch the enemy activity to move us from our position. I am standing my watch and waiting to see what God has to say in the matter. His word is the only one I am interested in.


    1. Amen, Sister Mary, You have just blessed me by saying you are waiting silently on God to see what He has to say in the matter. He is faithful and true; God always comes through for us, no matter what, and especially in those quiet times when we wait in silence, praying privately, closing the door behind us. I appreciate you for taking the taking to read this post. Thank you for following my site. May God richly bless you.


  4. Impeccable timing! I just came across this post and it struck a chord because that verse has been coming up a lot in my life, and even just this past week I read through Exodus 14 and it really spoke to me. We had a miscarriage in October and are praying to get pregnant again…I’ve struggled with infertility for years… we are believing God for a miracle and breakthrough and I keep encountering these verses lately. Thank you for sharing (and for checking out my blog as I wouldn’t have come across this otherwise).

    1. Greetings, my sister in Christ, Thank you so much for visiting and reading this post; I genuinely appreciate you. I have witnessed God’s breakthrough for some of my friends and family members. One of my good friends had a couple of miscarriages, and she never gave up; she continued to pray and preached the word of God after she lost her babies. Early last year, she lost her twins, the premature babies, and this year she has a lovely boy child; he is just about a few months old. Her faith in Christ prevailed in the work of the enemy. May I encourage you to continue to wait patiently for God alone! He is faithful; He will see you through. I am praying for you right now—many blessings to you.
