Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God;I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
My blank computer screen stares back at me and it feels like I’ve lost the momentum of writing. My mind is grasping for random words to unite in a coherent sentence since I last posted on Thursday, but no profound thoughts come to mind. God seems distant. It reminds me of a desk nameplate I saw once a long time ago with the words, “If God seems far away, who moved?”
I’m thankful that God’s presence is never dependent on how I’m feeling. Emotions that are fleeting and transitory can never serve as evidence of Him. Instead, I will ponder on His word and in prayerful worship offer this day for His glory.
Dear Lord, I rest on Your promises today, knowing You are always with me. So many times You have shown me that You are not a feeling, or a state of mind. You simply are. Amen.
