I recently read an interesting question in an old devotional book. The question was, “Why would you allow any human experience to affect your divine relationship with your Heavenly Father?”
What experience in this earthly life is worth anything in comparison to our relationship with our Father? We find ourselves trying to make sense of the things that happen in our lives and disappointment and frustration set in when we aren’t able to accomplish this.
How many times have you allowed disappointment to put distance between you and God? Maybe we don’t do it consciously but if we are honest with ourselves, we must admit that it is easy for disappointment to turn to discontentment.
When we are in the middle of a situation that we don’t understand or we see things happening in the world that make it look like God has stopped paying attention we can allow our focus to become clouded. We can forget that God is love and he loves us perfectly.
But God’s Word is clear:
“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:38-39(NASB)
