We all go through periods when it seems like heaven goes completely deaf, when everything in the world feels like it’s falling apart. You know those times when you feel devastated by circumstances or people. We turn to God in a panic and desperation because we can’t see any hope. But we don’t hear Him. It feels like He’s turned His back on us. What’s with that?
When life falls apart on you and panic sets in, you forget to trust God. You forget that He’s got your back. You start looking around for answers and ways to fix things yourself. Don’t get me wrong, you still have responsibility, but when you forget that God promises to be with you, you only look for answers you contrive.
Once we stop trusting, we essentially pull the plug on our communication line with God. He’s still talking to us, but we stop listening. It takes courage to keep believing God in the face of devastation. You have to choose to believe that God will take are of you. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand but it shall not come near you. (Ps 91:7) No matter what happens, you have to believe that you can trust God.
Take a deep breath and find your peace. God is with you and He always will be.
