Psalms 42-43: The Silence of God

I couldn’t work it in to the worship service (Sunday, September 19th) but I was drawn several times during preparation of Psalms 42 and 43 to the Andrew Peterson version of a Michael Card song called “The Silence of God.” The Psalmist clearly feels this silence. C. S. Lewis, in the reverse-speak of The Screwtape Letters says:

“Our cause is never more in danger than when a human, no longer desiring, but still intending, to do our Enemy’s will, looks round upon a universe from which every trace of Him seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys.”
