It is easy to worship God when things are going great in your life – when he has provided food, friends, family, health, and happy situations.

 

But circumstances are not always pleasant. • How do you worship God then? • What do you do when God seems a million miles away?

 

During times of spiritual dryness you must patiently rely on the promises of God, not your emotions, and realise that he is taking you to a deeper level of maturity. A friendship based on emotion is shallow indeed.

So don’t be troubled by trouble. Circumstances cannot change the character of God. God’s grace is still in full force; he is still for you, even when you don’t feel it. In the absence of confirming circumstances, Job held on to God’s Word. He said, “I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.” Job 23:12
