Day 14 is a must read! When God Seems Distant, we tend to seek other things – things that we can get an immediate response from. I think that God gets distant at times so that we can go to endless measures to try to seek Him. That is when things get hard. It gets hard because we look at God as someone to grant us wishes oppose to someone who has granted us life.
God is real, no matter how you feel.
We have to aggressively seek God, the same way we seek a mate, or a job, or some new clothes or a new car. We seek these things, research them and so on. With God, however, I’m sorry to say that sometimes we care/seek Him when it is easy…but when it gets hard…we go elsewhere.
When God seems distant:
Tell God exactly how you feel.
Focus on who God is – his unchanging nature.
Trust God to keep his promises.
Remember what God has already done for you.
Ask Yourself: How can I stay focused on God’s presence, especially when he feels distant?
