How To Reconnect With God
Is your life like a blur of Tik Tok videos, flashing by faster and faster, never stopping, never giving you time to focus on what is most important in your life: the Lord your God? We have made our lives so full of distraction; so many things that we think are important; so many things that are not important at all. If you feel that you have become disconnected from God, do not despair.
‘For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Jesus Christ our Lord.’ Romans 8:38-39
Consider what it is that has distanced you from God. It may be sin; it may be fear, doubt, anger or grief. Whatever is interfering with your relationship with God, there is no obstacle that cannot be overcome. Be honest with yourself, be honest with God, for God knows all and there is no hiding from his love.
‘But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.’ Isaiah 40:31
Open your heart and pray to God. Read your Bible and meditate on its teaching. Go to church. Perhaps it is necessary to restructure the way in which you live your life in order to reconnect with God. Remember, nothing is more important than your relationship with God. Talk to your pastor. Do you need time alone in order to reset your priorities or would it be helpful to you to spend more time with your Christian brothers and sisters? There is no one route to find your way back to God, just have faith that God will guide you.
‘And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.’ 1 Peter 5:10
