When God Seems Distant

God is real, no matter how you feel. 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?

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.

How do you praise God when you don't understand what's happening in your life and God is silent? How do you stay connected in a crisis without communication?

How do you keep your eyes on Jesus when they're full of tears? You do what Job did: "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."

Tell God exactly how you feel. Focus on who God is this unchanging nature. Trust God to keep His promises. And remember what God has already done for you.

Jesus gave up everything so you could have everything. He died so you could live forever. That alone is worthy of your continual thanks and praise. Never again should you wonder what you have to be thankful for.

Remember, tomorrow may never come.
Allow the presence of the Holy Spirit, to be with you always......
