When God is Distant
GOD PAUSE: For just a minute, I want to share something from God's heart with you. Actually it's a verse in the Bible found in Psalm 10:1. David says “Lord, you seem so far away when evil is near! Why do you stand so far off as though you don't care? Why have you hidden yourself when I need you the most?” The bottom line is I think you can relate quite well to David's thoughts and feelings here. David says a little later on in the same chapter about how grateful he was that he could still trust in God to be his helper, knowing that God heard his cry and bring the comfort to his heart. Dear Papa, help me and my friend not to give in to the lie of you being so distant and uncaring. May our faith rise up to trust you to move again in our behalf. Amen and amen.
