Where’s God When You Need Him?

Going through a hard time? Maybe you’ve lost your job or a loved one. Do you sometimes feel alone, like no one is there for you, not even God? Have you turned your back on God, thinking what you’ve done in the past would cause him to never forgive you?

There are days, even months like that, but don’t despair. God has never left you. Even if you’ve turned your back on Him, He’s there with you. Turn around, He’s got his arms wide open, waiting for you to return.

Verse Deuteronomy 31:6 reads, Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Isn’t it good to know God is with you at all times, during the good and bad.

No matter how rough a time you’re going through, whether it be financial, physical, or emotional, God’s arms are always open, wanting to hold you when you’re struggling. And if you’ve run from God, just stop and look behind you. He’s been there with you the entire time. He just doesn’t shout about it. He waits for you to decide to come back.

So run to His arms. Trust me, they’re open, waiting for your return.
