I’ve been a Christian since I was a child. I have to admit, at different seasons I felt closer to God sometimes and other seasons it was as if He were nowhere to be found. To be honest I have given this a lot of thought over the years. It’s a fact that the Lord didn’t change. It’s also a fact that He didn’t go on vacation or just vanish.
So I thought how is it that it seemed like days ago I was so close to him and now, what in eternity could me considered less than seconds, I feel all alone? This trial or that trial has come and what happened? Was God shaken? Nope. I am sure of it. It was I that had been shaken. The bible talks about trials and seasons and sifting of our faith.
In Hebrews 12 God says “And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.”
I have understood that in these times we must hold fast to God and to our faith, knowing that we can trust him. Inevitably, these seasons come to bring us ever closer to the Lord who will never leave us, never forsake us, and loves us with an eternal love. Know that God has not left you. He is as close as he has always been. Hold fast!… the season will be over soon.
