We look for God in tangible ways – new job, any job, or our answers for healing prayer. We strain to see a favourable solution to a tough situation we’re asking God to deal with. When things begin to work out the way we expected we give him credit and praise him for what he’s doing. But when the tangible doesn’t occur we wonder what’s happened to God or question what we’re doing wrong to deserve this kind of treatment. Why is God ignoring me? That’s the dangerous box of “tangible evidence of the Divine presence.”

It is so hard to simply listen. God doesn’t want us running around trying to fix things. He wants us to hear the words of Psalm 27:14 “Wait for the Lord. Be strong and let your heart take courage. Yes, wait for the Lord.”
