Have you ever felt ghosted by God?
Probably, one of the most difficult thing to understand and believe is the truth that most of the time, when we are in times and moments where it seems like God is nowhere to be found or we can’t see what He’s doing; it is actually the time when He might be working the most.
Probably we can all relate to that feeling when we experience moments of confusion, loneliness, feeling stuck, or just simply feeling that something isn’t going right in your life right now.
Probably that something in your life that has defined you or that something that you depended on so much has been taken away from you or needed to be let go of.
Probably, it isn’t always a person. Sometimes your season in life changes, and you didn’t get any warning and you didn’t know what to do in that next season.
And in those times, what makes it harder is the feeling of being left out by God.
Probably, you weren’t ghosted by God.
Probably, He has been doing something all along. Things you may not see or understand yet.
I remembered a guy named Habakkuk. This was his complaint to God…
2 O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear? Or cry to you “Violence!” and you will not save? 3 Why do you make me see iniquity, and why do you idly look at wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise. 4 So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted. Habakkuk 1:2-4
When it seems like you are ghosted by God, what do you do?
When you don’t understand something you can wrestle it with God. That’s what Habakkuk did. He wrestled with God until He felt God was there all along. He wrestled with God, He did not walk away, and then He remembered what he needed to do.
He needed to trust God again.
The goal is not to see everything clearly, the goal is to trust God completely.
God’s Answer to Habbakuk:
5 “Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in
your days that you would not believe if told. Habakkuk 1:5
When you can’t understand a thing, remember God is up to something.
