Have you questioned: God Are You Still There?

Since we have a human nature, we have at one time or another questioned and wondered – God where are you? This question crosses our mind especially during times such as a death of a loved one, illnesses, loss of jobs, divorce and situations that hit us hard. All of us face difficult days. Sometimes even the most optimistic people can become discouraged, and we are no exception. If we find ourselves enduring difficult circumstances, perhaps it’s time for an extreme intellectual makeover-perhaps it’s time to focus more on our strengths and opportunities. And less on the challenges that confront us. The Bible states that God is everywhere we have ever been and everywhere we will ever go. He is with us throughout the night and all through the day; He knows our every thought; He hears our every heartbeat. He doesn’t hide from us when the going gets rough; His love is too great for that. He puts His loving arms around us and gently guides us through those hard days. He took the stripes on His back for our healings and became the extreme sacrifice for our salvation. To question His loyalty is to disagree with His word and this is a dangerous place to be. When times get tough we need to quote scriptures and never stop praying. If we stop praying, we open the door for doubt, fear and despair. Speak to God with the assurance that He is listening.

When we earnestly seek Him, we will find Him because He is here, waiting patiently for us to reach out to Him…right here…right now. And make no mistake; our soul does indeed thirst for God. That thirst is planted in your heart, and it is a thirst that only God can quench.

Nobody can find Him for you. God is searching for you; it’s up to you-and you alone-to open your heart to Him and let Him do the perfect work.
Deuteronomy 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul
