You know there can be times, when we feel as if God doesn’t love us anymore…and most of the time, I would say it’s because we have come to trust what our circumstance is attempting to convey to us, rather than what God has promised us through His word.
When I look back on the very painful moments of my life, I praise God that He never gave up on me…but I have to admit; that there were times, when I felt as though I either wasn’t good enough, to be accepted by God…or I just wasn’t worthy of anyone’s love…including God’s love.
As I look back on those moments, I now see that those feelings truly stemmed from a deep brokenness within the heart and that they were being used by Satan, as a means of convincing me; that God had truly forsaken me, at a time when I needed Him the most.
In Psalm 18:17, 19, we read… “He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. 19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.”
Through time, I did come to see that it wasn’t God, who had left my side or had abandoned me; but rather, it was me…with all my negativity. Once I began to turn away from the thoughts that attempted to have control over my life…and dig deep into God’s word; that is when I came to see the truth; that God was a God, who took delight in me and truly loved me, for who I was…a God, who truly longed to deliver me and set me free, from a deep dark pit of despair.
