5 Practical Things You Need To Do When God Seems Distant!

Read:  Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5, 1 Peter 5:8, Ephesians 4:25, Ephesians 6:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, James 1:22, James 4:7, John 15:4, Hebrews 4:16, and Psalm 145:18

I often hear people say that "God is distant" or that "God seems far away" and let me tell you: this is the furthest thing from the truth that anyone can proclaim, think or feel! 

In other words, this is flawed thinking or what I refer to as "stinking thinking".

Why do I say this? "Spoiler Alert" case you forgot...It's because in God's Word, He tells us that He will never leave or forsake us, and we can take Him at His Word! 

Just as the enemy helped confuse Adam and Eve, which contributed to them doubting God and not taking God at His Word as well as led to their sin against Him...he tries to do the same thing in our lives so that we also might doubt God and not take Him at His Word.

Approaching God with Confidence!

"Nothing you confess could make me love you less."

We're reminded in Hebrews 4:16 that we can approach God with confidence:

"Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."

We have nothing to fear with Him because His love is perfect...never-changing...unconditional! As my pastor often reminds us, "God is not mad at you, He is mad about you!"

So, when all is said and done, as you walk out your faith day-to-day, confess everything and communicate with God knowing that no matter what you bring to Him, (it's not like He doesn't already know!) that He loves you unconditionally and His love is an everlasting love! Nothing you say will ever change that!! His love remains constant and perfect for you!

So, go in confidence today encouraged by His strong and perfect love for you! ...but don't forget the importance of confession and constant communication with Him as you live and walk out your faith in and relationship with Him!

Have blessed day!

In Christ,
