Sometimes you can’t say anything, because God has given you a gag order.
He won’t let you preach, pray or prophesy. There are times He silences you so that He can talk to you, He can impart into you. He doesn’t want you releasing a Word to the people or to a certain individual.
Sometimes, what He speaks or shows us is before time, and He knows they won’t be able to receive it.
Sometimes He silences us, so we want to reveal our plans, vision and goals to persons who are against us. God doesn’t want us to be hurt, hindered or blocked so often He will require us to stop talking stop and interacting.
This silence is for your own good, to help you to see some results of what God spoke about you.
So next time you are in a situation, or with someone, and the Lord says ‘Shhhhhh…‘, just close your mouth and know that you are given a gag order!
