Only You Can Keep You From God

You know how sometimes you feel closer to God than others?

There are times in worship or morning prayers where you feel you can reach out and touch God. At the same time, there are moments where you feel God is incredibly distant. You may be going through difficult circumstances or you just got done sinning. Throughout any given week (or even day) God can feel close or distant. These feelings affect your prayers.

As Christians, the truth is that we are always able to boldly approach God (Hebrews 4:16). Therefore the feelings of distance are from us not from God. And thinking that we need to be in worship and/or prayer to feel close is also on us.

Our beliefs are the doors that keep shutting the passage to the realities that God has promised.

We have a hard time feeling God near us after we sin because we feel we need to muster up a certain amount of repenting first. God does seem to show up in worship because we get ourselves to a place of accepting ourselves as worthy of His presence. We feel God has left us during hard times because we don’t want to believe He knows about these difficulties and not coming through the way we want Him to.

God’s truth is always true even when it does not feel like true.

Does God feel far from you? He says He will never leave nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). Choose to believe this and walk forward in faith that it is true. You will be amazed at the difference.
