Remember when I walked with you in the cool of the day?
Remember when you shifted your schedule, so you could stay?
What happened my child?
Why did you go away?
God, where are you? We all have asked this question at some point in our walk. Like a child that walked away from his parents in a busy shopping mall we stress, cry and scream “where are you?!” Believe it or not it is not God who moved, its us.
We like the child in the shopping mall are drawn away and distracted by the “candy” of this world. And when we look up from what distracted us, we don’t see God. But God was leading us, He was making the path straight for us, being a pillar of cloud by day. And a pillar of fire by night. But we took our eyes off Him and decided that this other way is quicker. So now we find our self-lost unable to get back on track, what do we do?
Revelation 2:4 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lamp-stand from its place—unless you repent. It doesn’t have to be something dramatic and big. You could have simply stopped your late night quiet time with the Lord, you could have stopped writing a devotional series God put in your hands. It is more often the subtle things that get us furthest off track from God. God has not moved, we are the ones that moved. He is calling us back in alignment with him. God has not left you, return to those things that fertilized your relationship with him, return to your first love.
Much Love God Bless
