Seeking Him Podcast

Faith in the Dark

Answering machine: This is Seeking Him with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. Please leave your question at the tone.

I’m reading the Bible and praying just like I used to, but for some reason, I just don’t sense God’s presence. It seems like I’m talking to myself. What’s going on?

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: There are times when God withholds the conscious sense of His presence—times when God seems far away and less real. I think that’s because He wants us to walk by faith and seek Him with all our hearts.

Isaiah described it this way: “Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God” (50:10).

If you feel like you’re walking in the dark today, let me encourage you. Trust in the Lord, rely on your God, and keep going. God is pleased with faith that’s exercised, even in the darkness.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
