God is good
So often we can feel God is far away when we need him the most. When we’re in a really good place with God then that’s when He feels the closest but when things seem to be going wrong then it seems God isn’t with us.
God promises that he would never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6), when we hold on to that promise we can be lead through our circumstances standing on truth. The bible says that “The Lord is good and his love endures forever” Psalm 100:5
It’s when we feel most far away from God and we worship anyway that we’re truly living in faith. God honours our faith, he loves our faith. When the world is telling us that God isn’t with us and that He isn’t good but instead we choose to believe God’s promises instead, that’s when the impossible happens.
God will lead us through our circumstances and shape our character, we’ll draw closer to Him through it. It doesn’t matter whether we feel him with us or not it’s about trusting He’s always with us and trusting in Him the whole way through. Obviously we pray for more of God’s presence all the time and that’s great but even if we don’t feel His presence we need to always know that God is good, and His love endures forever.
