God’s promise is that is you “draw near to Him, He will draw near to you” (James 4:8). Are you ready to draw near to Him today? When you are, read the devotional below.
“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but IF the Lord is with us, WHY has all this happened to us? — Judges 6:13
You’ve asked this same question before haven’t you? “God if you’re so good then what’s the deal with all the bad that’s being dumped on me lately? If you’re for me then why does it seem like the world is against me? Why don’t I have a job, better health and less problems?”
Some of you here today have asked that question or some version of that question. I want to make sure you know, God is not offended by that question. As a matter of fact, often times it is THIS question that leads us back to a relationship or deepens our relationship with God.
As you prepare to pray, are there questions like the ones above that you have for God?
What do you sense your Heavenly Father speaking to you right now? How is He calling you to respond?
