The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.The LORD trieth the righteous. [Psalm 11:4,5 KJV.]

The Lord tries the righteous. His eyelids try the children of men.

Sometimes the Lord does not answer prayer. Sometimes he appears to be asleep. And in those times we are tried. What will we do ?

Jesus tried his disciples, betimes. When they came to him regarding the feeding of the five thousand, he did not immediately feed the multitude, he first asked the disciples what they had. What have you got ? What can you find ? What do you have to work with ?

So in the boat. He slept. Remarkable that he could, in the midst of storm and chaos and the upheaval. It would indicate his exhaustion with the responsibility of ministry and travel.

But, because of his sleeping, the disciples were tried in their faith. What would they do in the Lord's 'absence' ? What would be brought out in their trial ? How would they react ?

Master, carest thou not that we perish ? [Mark 4:38 KJV.]

Master ? Not Lord ? In distress, they revert to a relationship of Master and servant.

Why are ye so fearful ? How is it that ye have no faith ? [Mark 4:40, KJV.]

The Lord, by his inactivity, has drawn out something that was within them. And he speaks to it. And they learn by the experience.

His eyelids try the children of men.

O God, no longer silent be,

from slumber do thou cease:

be thou no longer still, O God,

and no more hold thy peace.

Psalm 83 :1.
