“..but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Do you ever feel like you have been left out or lonely? Have you ever felt far away from God? Many people feel this way, and many say that it’s natural. Feeling lonely and separated from God is not what God has in mind for his children. God desires for you to be happy and close to his side. He loves you!
Never underestimate the potential of one encounter with God’s presence!
God moves in our lives but we may not be able to see why or when this is occurring. Perhaps your path will follow that of the almond rod. It may be that God will not restore your life piece by piece. He may decide do everything in just one night. He may choose to resurrect your dead dreams in one powerful movement of intimacy! But whether He moves instantaneously or over a period of years, we must be content with the knowledge that He does what is best for us.
You might be saying to yourself, “But you don’t know how striped I feel.” God can do anything! He says to come as you are. We don’t have to put on false identities. It’s not about getting the right job. It’s not spotlighting yourself in front of the most important people. The one thing you have to keep in mind is that you always need to be in God’s presence. Learn what the almond tree learned, the soil is not your true source.
Lord, I’m stripped and naked, and I feel hopeless. I don’t even have a branch to produce or hold any fruit. I have nothing. Lord, help me find your heart. Guide me in your ways that I will be restored. AMEN
