1.7.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on prayer. Part 52. Forsaken?

DEVOTION: “The “hiddenness” of God perhaps presses most painfully on those who are in another way nearest to Him, and therefore God Himself, made man, will of all men be by God most forsaken?” (pg 151)

I don’t really know what to say about this sentence but I knew that it was worth pointing out.

Although, from experience, I have to somewhat agree with it. Sometimes those who are “closest to God” feel the furthest away. I can’t put a finger on this but I know that in speaking with many people who are prayer warriors, they can back me up on this statement.

That being said, I don’t want to find myself “most forsaken”. I want to find more of God. More of Him in everything. So where does that leave me?

Wanting to pray more. Wanting to seek Him more. Wanting Him more.

It all points back to Him. More of Him. Less of me.

    Amen. Grow closer to him and he will grow closer to you. Rest in his love. Rise up when he tells you to rise up. All for God
