If we are faithless, He remains faithful. 2 Timothy 2:13a (ESV)
Did you read that...God is faithful even when we are not! (Amen) Throughout my life, there have been times that I worshipped God faithfully, and there have been times when I bombed at spending quality time with Him. But, He is/was there.
Matter of fact, I believe that God is not only present in those times when we move away from Him but also during those hard times. And you kno what He allows it to happen with a specific purpose in mind --- YOU. God never promised an easy life. He told us that these times will come. But, here is the good news, God is waiting to do things in and through you that you will blow your mind but He may have needed to draw you close. Close enough for you to cry out when you feel alone. Close enough for you to feel His Presence. Close enough that you can hear His Voice despite the noise.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. John 10:27-28 (ESV)
Lord, allow me to always remember that you are my Shepherd, and I am a sheep, You would leave the 99 for me. But, also let me never forget to count hard times as joy because You will draw me close. In Jesus Name. Amen.
