Fall in love with Him again
I’m a firm believer in seasons. Not just the Earth’s natural seasons like summer and winter, but seasons in life. There are seasons when I’m head over heels in love with God, when I feel so close to Him that I want to praise Him every second of the day. But there are also seasons when I feel so far away from Him that I want to cry. Times when I question my faith and His purpose over my life.
One thing that the Bible, particularly David in Psalm, teaches us is that it’s okay to feel like that. It’s okay to be going through seasons of being frustrated in loving Him, waiting on Him and then pursuing Him like you never have before.
Throughout Psalm, David writes about his highs and lows in following God. In 143:7-10 He tells God to hurry up with His answer, saying how frustrated he is with God ignoring him.
The best thing to do in those times when you’re struggling with your relationship with Him, is to remind yourself the Truth. Read it, stand on it, pray it and obey it.
I always take a moment to think back to the moment I first encountered Him – the day that I first fell in love with God. Remember what He did and remember how you felt. Let yourself fall in love with Him again.
In the next few verses of 143, David then reminds himself how God is his only hope, and how all of his trust is in Him. He starts to praise God in the midst of his frustration.
Don’t be discouraged with wherever you’re at in life. Remind yourself who God is and fall in love with Him all over again.
