The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands. – Psalm 19:1 (NIV)
Have you ever had moments when you don’t feel God? Do you ever doubt, wonder or question if He’s real? If so, you’re completely normal. We all have times when we don’t feel God. There are times when we wonder if God really is real.
But here’s the truth, regardless of what we see or feel, God is real. We know this because the Bible tells us that He is. So even when we don’t feel anything, it doesn’t matter. Why? Because our trust in God isn’t based on feelings. If it was, it would be a shaky foundation.
Faith in God isn’t based on how you feel. So even if you have days when you don’t feel it, that doesn’t mean that He isn’t real.
Think of it this way. There are days when you’re busy and don’t see many of your friends. Maybe you had an early morning practice, or classes, and then had to run home fast after school. As a result, you didn’t get to see, feel, or talk to your friends. That doesn’t mean that your friends aren’t your friends anymore because you didn’t have any contact with them today.
And the same is true with God. God is real, regardless of whether you feel him, see Him, or anything else. You simply have to believe that He is and walk in that faith each day.
