A Daily Devotional
About the cry of the
multitudes for faith in God…
John 3:5 Jesus answered,
"I tell you the truth, no one can enter the
Matthew 9:36 When he saw
the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless,
like sheep without a shepherd. (NIV)
are the multitudes. Please hear our cry. For us, God is not a person. For us,
God is only an idea, not a reality. For us, God is not within us. For us, all we
have is our own presence. All we is only our own thought. All we have is
whoever it is we are."
live in emotional or spiritual pain, you can easily have doubts about God. In
emotional pain, you can doubt whether God is real. When you live in the painful
spiritual deadness of life, God can become only an idea instead of a reality.
When you live in the painful spiritual deadness life can sometimes become, God
is indeed far off. What is truth and what is a lie does not change whether you
live in painful spiritual deadness or spiritual life. When you live in painful
spiritual deadness your spirit within you seems to have died. In truth, every
person can understand what it is like to be dead inside because every person on
earth has lived in spiritual deadness. However, some of us have come alive in
our spirit. When we come alive spiritually, God becomes a real person living
within us. When we come alive spiritually, God is not just an idea but a
reality. When we come alive spiritually, God is always near us and alive within
us. Suddenly, when we have come alive spiritually, we have more than just our
own thoughts to keep us company. When we come alive spiritually, we suddenly
have access to the thoughts of God. If we are humble enough, when we come alive
spiritually, we hear God speaking His words of love within our heart.
