Kingdom Revelator Australia – Issue 76
As I walked with my son one late evening, he looked up at the sky and exclaimed, “Mom, look, someone has stolen the moon.” As I looked up at the sky, I saw that the clouds had completely covered the moon and so it seemed to my five-year old that someone had stolen the moon. It was indeed a very interesting insight into the mind of a little boy. As we walked on, I explained to him that the moon is always there, it’s just that the clouds cover the moon as they move across it.
Isn’t it a similar scenario in our spiritual journey? At times we see clearly the presence of God in our lives but at other times we can’t. As we get busy with our lives and as our prayer life dwindles, God sometimes seems to be absent in life, but the reality is far from this. God is always there, it’s just that we lose sight of Him due to our sinfulness. When we experience the nearness of Jesus, we are greatly comforted and live in serenity; but loosing track of the Lord darkens our path ahead.
We read in Isaiah 55:6, “Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.” This lent, let us rediscover the constant presence of God in our lives and be united in His passion. Let’s remind ourselves that if we draw near to God, then He will draw near to us (James 4:8).
