Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.// Deuteronomy 31:6
Recently, I’ve felt really distant from God. I’ve felt the world pull me into its non sense, and get pulled from God. To be completely honest, I have felt lost, alone, and not myself. While I’ve been struggling with it, I ask my brothers and sisters in Christ for advice, I pray, and I continue reading His Word and things for me to learn more about Him. And I’ve learned that it’s not God who pulls away from us. It’s us who pulls away from God. I’ve learned even though I can’t feel Him, touch Him, or He’s not actually in my presence, I trust Him. I trust Him that He is here with me. With all of us, whether we feel distant or not; God has made a promise to us. And the promise to His people is He will NEVER leave or forsake us. Knowing that, I get more motivated. I get motivated seek Him more and trust Him.
Maybe you felt that distance between you two and you understand or you can put this away and in the back of your head just in case you ever feel like this.
It is our job to trust God and to know that He will not leave us. We can find those ways to pull closer to Him, to feel more motivated to find Him again, and to continue having faith in His never ending love and grace.
Through sufferings, sinning, excitement trials, overloaded joy, heartaches, despair, love, depression, or any feelings or situations, God will never leave you. No matter what happens in your life, remember you will always have that number one King, Creator, and Father of all.
—With this said, I have one thing to say to you. Do NOT give up. God is not gone, and He never will be.
He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.// Hebrews 13:5
It is never about Jesus if it’s always about us.
I pray that The Lord may speak to you through me, I can only hope I can help you in your relationship with Christ.
