Why Hidest Thou?

Why do We sometimes feel that God is far away? There are times we need to feel He is nearby. Psalm 10:1 says “Why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?” David dared to ask the question. It is okay to ask questions of God. All the great people of the Bible had troubles of one kind or another. The thing that made the difference is they asked God about it. They didn’t ask someone else. They didn’t even trust their own feelings. Feelings can change what God’s word never changes. The Lord never promised that following Him would be a trouble free journey. He never promised to take us around the
valleys. He always promised to walk us through them. Psalms 23:4 says, “Ye though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil,” for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.”
