“By night on my bed I sought the one I love; I sought him, but I did not find him.” — Song of Solomon 3: 1
How sad it is when we seek the Lord, but cannot find Him. I have experienced those dreadful days when I sense my prayers helpless and a feeling that God is not near. But the truth is that God has not changed. He remained omnipresent, omnipotent & omniscient. He is just a call away. He is fully aware of our situation. He has His reasons for His withdrawal from my sense of His presence, which I may not perceive or understand. Most of the time (although not all the time), it has to be because of my sins, my dulled sense of His presence, my lack of giving Him due attention in my life and my backsliding.
Oh, may God renew His presence with us and energise us with the keen sense of His presence always. May we seek Him and find Him.
