When He Seems Most Distant

July 25, 2018

“God is never more near to us than when He seems most distant from us.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, When God’s Ways Make No Sense, Chapter 7, “A Hands-Off God?” pg 97

Questions for Reflection:
• Do you remember times in your life during which you felt abandoned by God but that you now look back on and see His hand at work in your life?
• If the times when God appears silent and detached are actually the seasons when He’s doing His deepest work in you, how does that change your perception of His seeming distance?
• What opportunity for worship are you being given today in the parts of your life that don’t make sense to you?
• Although it’s easy to withdraw from God when He appears unconcerned with the pain we long to escape, honestly share your heart with Him today and then offer Him your willingness to wait before Him with an open heart for the gifts that can only come through silence.
