Letter 8

What if…

In the times of your life that you don’t feel God.

He doesn’t seem to be around.

He doesn’t seem to be involved with what you are going through.

It seems that though you have cried your heart out to Him he hasn’t heard you because nothing has really changed. You circumstance is even worse now than it was a few days ago. You have prayed for answers but none have come your way. Just more suffering.

The heath situation is worse.

The relational situation is worse

The financial situation is bottoming out.

There is no relief in sight. You feel like you are in the middle of the desert dreaming of oases that seem to be ahead but disappear when you get to them.

What if …

during those times of drought…

those times of thirsting for relief in your desert…

those times you nurse the thought you have been forsaken by God…

you drummed up the “where with all” to obey God anyway?

What would happen?

Well, that kind of faith shakes the very foundations “demonic world” who have worked against you this entire time to make you feel defeated, alone and abandoned.

They have done everything they could to kill your faith and trust in God but in that moment when there was no reason left for you to believe but you found the strength to believe anyway…

you actually slayed all their efforts and emerged victorious over them…

though you may not feel it in the moment.

It is this kind of faith they fear the most.

So don’t give up…

keep pressing on.

Our cause is never more in danger than when a human, no longer desiring, but still intending, to do our Enemy’s will, looks round upon a universe from which every trace of Him seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken and still obeys.” Screwtape
