What to do when you think that God has forgotten about you

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

When people are going through a hard time, we can begin to sound like we are going through a bad patch.   Jeremiah had begun to develop this tone.  It was a tone of distrust and despair.
Perhaps he was saying things like: “God has forgotten about me”, or “God does not have a plan for me”, or “trusting God is not really helping me”.
Moaning or distrust and despair do not move God, God is moved by faith.
When we develop this tone we need to take decisive steps to give up and let go of this attitude so that God can begin to use us again.

Jeremia15:19 Therefore thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah]: If you return [and give up this mistaken tone of distrust and despair]…

When we develop doubt, we set ourselves up for disaster.  Doubt and suspicions about God and His faithfulness are unacceptable and vile to God.

Jeremiah 15:19 and if you separate the precious from the vile [cleansing your own heart from unworthy and unwarranted suspicions concerning God’s faithfulness]

Our doubt concerning God is unworthy and unwarranted.  Don’t let it get a foothold in your life.
