The Silent God

(20 October 2007, Mandaue)

What if God goes through all the efforts of showing His omnipotence to all non-believers?

What if God manifests Himself to those who doubt His existence?

Sometimes I wish God would answer every prayer with a resounding “yes” or a firm “no.” Sometimes I wish heaven would open and God would show His face and His resplendent glory. Sometimes I wish that God’s presence and guiding hand become apparent in all things.

But then, what would life be if everything that man does is subject to God’s tangible approval? If God is not silent, many of the things we believe in will not make sense. Man will no longer be free. Love will no longer be forthcoming. Faith will no longer be the evidence of things unseen.
