WHEN GOD SEEMS DISTANT

56

It is easy to worship God when things are going great in your life- when He has provided food,friends,family, health and happy situations. But circumstances are not always pleasant.

HOW DO YOU WORSHIP GOD THEN? WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN GOD SEEMS A MILLION MILES AWAY?

When God seems distant, you may feel that He is angry with you or disciplining you for some sin. In fact, sin does disconnect us from intimate fellowship with God. We grieve God’s spirit and quence our fellowship with Him by disobedience, conflict with others, busyness, friendship with the world and other sins.

WILL YOU CONTINUE TO LOVE, TRUST, OBEY AND WORSHIP GOD, EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE NO SENSE OF HIS PRESENCE OR VISIBLE EVIDENCE OF HIS WORK IN YOUR LIFE?

Sometimes we seek and experience rather than seeking God. Yes, He wants us to sense His presence, but He’s more concerned that you TRUST Him than you FEEL Him.

The situations that will stretch our faith most will be those times when life falls apart and God is nowhere to be found.

I remember the story of Job, on a single day He lost everything- his family,business, his health and everything he owned. And God said nothing!
But what makes me admire by Job, is How he worship God. “Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

The faith of Job, didn’t wavered instead He draw more closer to God. I hope and I pray that if you are in a hopeless situation that you may think that will be the end of your life, NO IT’S NOT. God wants us to trust Him more, than our own emotions. God loves you so much more than you can imagine. He wants you more than anything else in this world.
