Seeking Feeling is Not Worship


God has not promised "you will always feel my presence." In fact, God admits that sometimes he hides his face from us. (Isaiah 45:15) This is a normal part of the testing and maturing of your friendship with God. It is painful and disconcerting, but it is absolutely vital for the development of your faith. Knowing this gave Job hope when he could not feel God's presence in his life. He said, "I go east, but he is not there. I go west, but I cannot find him. I do not see him in the north, for he is hidden. I turn to the south, but I cannot find him. But he knows where I am going. And when he has tested me like gold in a fire, he will pronounce me innocent." (Job 23:8-10 NLT) When God seems distant, you may feel that he is angry with you or is disciplining you for some sin. In fact, sin does disconnect us from intimate fellowship with God. But often this feeling of abandonment or estrangement from God has nothing to do with sin. It is a test of faith - one we all must face: 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?


“Truly, O God of Israel, our Savior, you work in mysterious ways.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭45:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬
