Are you going through a lonely season? Have you lost all that you thought you knew? Is what you are waiting for not coming?.
Now could it be that you had placed that person, that position, that wealth, the idea of having whatever it is you desired as more important to you than God? Could it be that you had begun to consult them people more than God.
In 1 Kings 18 we see Elijah asking the people of Israel ” Is there no God that you consult Baal” Friends Baal stands for anything that you classify as more important even unknowingly, and it takes God’s place in your life. It could be your friends, your phone, money the idea of getting married so much so that that is where you spend all your energies at.
See our God is a jealous God (Exodus 34:14), he wants your all. There is a danger friends in putting anything else as more deserving of you than God. You endanger yourself and that person. God will literally separate you so he can turn your heart back to him. He has the power to take away from you everything so that your focus is on entirely on him.
I can testify to such seasons and I believe God wants me to encourage someone out there who might be going through the same situation. Is God first in your life?Are your decisions based on God, man or your emotions. Is God your God in good and bad times, is he God in your daily life. Do you wake up to him or to your phone to flood your heart with timelines on Instagram or whatever else. Where does most of your time go?
Now if you have recognised that you had placed your job, phone , friends as more to you than God, turn back to God while he still can be found (Isaiagh 55:6). Ask God to show you how to put him first in the midst of life’s demands. Cast all your anxieties on God because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
God loves us so much he wants to be part of our daily life. If you are like me and God has moved some people away from you and got you out of your comfort zone then use that season to spend time with God and truly follow him.
Even friendships have seasons it could be that you are not going the same direction, it does not make them a bad person, its just the season God is wanting you in. Maybe you so badly need money, or anything you desire ask God to give you wisdom and focus on him while you wait on God.
Remember God will always give you double what you lose for his sake. That is why his thoughts and ways for us are higher than ours. (Isaiagh 55;9). Do not be tempted to run back to the things that God is taking you away from in those seasons. It is painful yes but it is a season, it will not last forever. In due season God will give you all that you desire, notice its “in due” season. There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
God loves you so much, will you just spend time with him.
