"It feels like God is distant." "I don't think He hears my prayers." "God, where are You?" How many times have you heard this from others? How many times have you said these things?
God wants a relationship with you. He wants to be in constant communication with you. There are things God wants to share with you. There are things He wants you to hear, see, and share with others. Spend time with God, not only through prayer, but through the reading of His Word. In fact, answers to every day questions and the keys to victorious living are found in His Word. If you want to improve your relationship with God, prayer and bible reading are essential. Hebrews 11:6 KJV states that "He is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him."
If you don't spend quality time with God in prayer and in the reading of His Word, it's normal to feel distant from Him. The truth is God never left you. You left Him. When you ask God where is He, His answer might sound something like this, "I’m right here. I never left you. The question is, where are you?"
"Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you." James 4:8 KJV
