God is real, no matter how you feel.
It is easy to worship God when things are going great in our life- when he has provided food, friends, family, health, wealth and happy situations.But circumstances are always not pleasant.What do you do when God seem a million miles away?
The deepest level of worship is praising God in spite of pain, thanking God during a trial, trusting him when tempted, surrendering while suffering and loving him when he seem distant.
Friendships are always tempted by separation and silence, times of closeness and times of distance.The situations that will stretch your faith most will be those times, when life falls apart and God is no where to be found.This happened to Job. On a single day he lost everything- family, his business, his health and everything he owned. Most discouraging for 37 chapters God said nothing!
How do you praise God when you don’t understand whats happening in your life and God is silent? How do you stay connected in a crisis without communication? Do what Job did:
“Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; the name of the Lord be praised.”
