When God Seems Distant

When God Seems Distant

Deuteronomy 4:29But if you seek the Lord your God, you will find Him if you look for Him with all your heart and with all your soul. (NIV 1978)

My Musing – When we cannot seem to find God, it is not because He is distant or making things difficult. We may simply have not sought Him as earnestly and as diligently as we should.

My Advice – God will seem distant to you at times. It will never be because He has moved away from you. Perhaps you have moved away from Him? Or perhaps you are not sincere enough in your seeking (seeking with wrong motives or a wrong attitude)? At such a time it is good to assess your relationship. Like the prodigal son’s father, He will be looking for your return.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
