Today Warren focuses on those times when God seems distant. And while sin in our lives can definately make us distant from God, Warren also reminds us that there may also be other reasons for God to appear distant, as evidenced in the book of Job, that may be for reasons beyond our human knowledge. So, today's study reminds us to practice our faith despite how we "feel", as spiritual maturity is based on trust in God and his unchanging characteristics.
V. Raymond Edman said, "Never doubt in the dark what God told you in the light." So, during those dark times, remind yourself of what you know to be eternally true...the promises laid out in God's word.
