What if God isnt there?
Have you ever had times when you think God has forsaken you?
Have you ever got the feeling that God no longer cares about you?
Please read Psalm 77:10-12
Even Jesus felt forsaken by God so I guess it is entirely possible that we will feel that as well.
In fact, if you havent felt like God has turned His back on you at some point you have lived spiritually. This is a normal part of spiritual growth and dont worry God is big enough to handle it. The key is dont get stuck here!
This is where the god haters get separated from the God Lovers. This is the point where a person makes a conscious decision to love life and live life or begin to seal off themselves and die little bit by little bit.
Take a look at how the writer of this psalm deals with these moments:
Vs. 11 “I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes I will remember Your miracles of long ago.
I will consider all Your works and meditate on all Your mighty deeds.”
One of the problems with a legalistic approach to Christianity is it gets our eyes looking at our deeds not His! As long as we are looking at our deeds we cant see His. He did it all as there was nothing we could have done or ever could do. He did the miracles not us and He made the changes and created the LOVE not us.
Here is a meditation for you:
What did God do for you in the past?
Write down several things and use some of the miracles of the Bible if you would like to. Then after you have some written down get a good mental picture of one of them. As you see that picture and really focus on it do this:
Breathe in and say:
Breathe out and say:
“I am so grateful”
Dont Worry- Be Grace-Full!
