When You Feel Like God is Far Away

Where Did It All Go Wrong?

Sometimes, we experience a life-changing situation which makes it very difficult for us to bounce back from. At these moments, we begin to ask questions…

  • Where did it go wrong?
  • What should I have done that I didn’t?
  • Where is the life as I know it?
  • Where is God?

You find yourself drowning as the days go by. Depression sets in. You just feel like ending it all.

It seems that God doesn’t listen. He seems to be far away. Is he really listening? You feel that you cannot hear God’s voice. And that he doesn’t hear your cries.

I want you to know that God is not behind your problems or suffering. But he is standing there to lift you out of it.

All you need to do is take a leap of faith and trust in him. God wants to brag about you just like his servant Job in the Bible.

1 Cor 10:13 No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful. He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able. But, with the temptation, he will also provide a way out so that you may be able to bear it.

Our Heavenly Father loves you

You are the apple of God’s eyes. Our Heavenly Father loves you too much to neglect you. He wouldn’t give you what you cannot handle.

He allows us go through some things so at the end of it, his name is glorified. In Matthew 28:20 we are told “… I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. “. In Hebrews 7:25 we are reminded that he intercedes on our behalf. He is in prayer for you!

Romans 5:3 And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance.

Don’t Give Up

Don’t give up, my dear. Trust in God and believe in yourself. With God on your side, You are stronger than you think. Believe in your heart that God will answer whenever you pray or call on him. Shalom!!!

Testimony – by Glorie Fourie

I would like to thank God for this day, His protection towards my family and everyone else.

When I accepted Jesus I was a mess. I didn’t know how to pray. I didn’t feel Him or His presence in times of healing or comfort.

At that time, I didn’t know how to communicate with Him when I was down and out. I was angry, bitter, full of tears every time when I try to explain myself.

Being submissive to the Lord

But because we are serving an amazing God, I was given 3 chapters by one of the Prayer Warriors to read and use them as a prayer as well. Those were Psalms 51, 71 and 91. 

Those chapters worked a miracle in my life. I ended up understanding that before I could even think of what I am going through, I needed to be submissive in front of Jesus and everyone else. 

As a sinner, I needed to accept my sins and also acknowledge that I am a sinner and I am prepared to change and be a new person in Jesus Name

Humbling myself

Then God started to work in me by showing me the right path and directing me in doing good to others without expecting anything back. I had to humble myself as I used to walk with pride and taking other people for granted. 

Today I am a down-to-earth person. I understand each and every situation that a person is going through. When a person is hungry, I know how it feels. When someone is going under rejection, I know how it is

Having problems and not having anyone to turn to? I know how it feels. I am from there and I am a witness of all of this in Jesus Name.

So my brothers and sisters, let us all unite as one under the umbrella of Jesus. Let us help one another in prayer and ask God our Father to have mercy on all of us and help us to cross this river Jordan being protected under His Wings.

I am saying all of this in the Wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ Amen. Your sister in Christ – Glorie Fourie

      I know exactly how you feel. I have been there too. The only thing that kind of soften my heart is this verse; ” Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in your mother’s body I chose you. Before you were born I set you apart to serve me. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.” It was with my granddaughter, GOD needed her more than we needed her.
