David is walking through a deep and dark moment of life in Psalms 13:1-6. In the depths of that moment that he cries out to God asking “Where are you?”
We may have felt that way sometime too but just because we’re feeling that way doesn’t mean that those things are true. So in those moments of deep sorrow we need truth to anchor us.
In Ephesians 2:12-13 Paul says that positionally we are with Christ forever and there is nothing that can change that. In Hebrews 13:5 the writer says “I will never leave you nor forsake you”.
All our feelings and emotions need to be filtered through this truth.
So why does God feel distant?
- Pursuit of Sin (Isaiah 59:1-2)
- Pursuit of Comfort
