Trust God When He Seems Far Away

Reading for the day: Isaiah 40:31

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

What is happening when it seems like God is not answering you? It can be a lonely and low point in your life, but it doesn’t have to be when you understand God’s nature.

Know this: God answers all prayers. For those who follow Him, He says that your prayers are powerful and effective. What we have trouble with is the timing of those answers.

Sometimes, God’s answer to us is “not yet.” It can be a hard pill to swallow especially when the need seems so urgent to us. But, these are the times when your faith kicks in. Faith learns how to wait patiently for God to show up in your life.

There is a difference. Waiting impatiently leads to unhappiness, disobedience and other paths that don’t lead anywhere good. Through patience, your faith in God leads you to continue to lift up prayers for others, praise Him daily, count your blessings and live as a blessing to others. This way, you stay encouraged and confident in God’s wisdom and love.

Before you know it, God answers that prayer. It probably won’t be in the way that you thought which will bring a smile and a laugh of gratitude that God is the boss and not you. Each waiting period brings tons of strength-training opportunities.

Prayer Suggestion: I know you hear me Lord, even though you seem far away. I will continue to praise and trust you in the meantime.
