Sunday Vibes || When It Feels Like God Is Far Away From You
Ever felt like you were buried in a place? Like you were abandoned, like you praying and nothing is working, like you locked up in a place? Like you’re spiritually alone? You know…you go through some certain things in life and you feel you may never come out of it alive or you feel God has forsaken you. They call it dry season and I call it desert and silent seasons – a time when you feel all alone in your life’s journey, a time when nothing good seems to be happening, a time when you feel stagnant, a time when it feels like God is far away from you, like He literally turned His back on you, a time when even your prayer/fasting wouldn’t change a thing, a time when you go through processes upon processes, intense pain and dealings, like a woman in travail…
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not: and in the night season, and am not silent. – Psalm 22:1-2
God is real, no matter how you feel.
The deepest level of worship is praising God in spite of pain. Thanking God during a trial, trusting Him when tempted, surrendering while suffering and loving Him when He seems distant. – Rick Warren
The Lord Has hidden himself from His people, but I trust Him and place my hope in Him. – Isaiah 8:17
When God feels far away from you:
For He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. – Hebrews 13:5bb
This trust in God’s word caused Job to remain faithful even though nothing made sense. He said “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.”
God is always present, even when you are unaware of Him and His presence is too profound to be measured by mere emotions. – Rick Warren
