When it seems to be too quiet after a significant life event takes place, some will interpret that silence as peace. Silence is not evidence of true peace. It can mask reality and be used as a time of preparation for the next conflict hoping an adversary will let their guard down and prematurely assume all is well.
Never allow yourself to define peace based on a lack of perceivable activity. The shrewdest enemies plan their next assault within the boundaries of our errant assumptions.
We are in one of those moments in time when there should be more noise, but there isn’t. An alert and on guard faith is never taken by surprise no matter how appealing a silence might appear.
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (I Peter 5:8).
