… Bring Yahweh praise and you will find him. Your hearts will overflow with life forever! (Psa 22:26)
If you're like me, then it’s easy to thank GOD when he ‘feels’ close at hand – the sun is shining, I have a nice hot latte in my hand, my bank account is full, my health is good, I feel loved and valued, blah, blah, blah.
But what about when he seems distant? When the roiling grey and dismal clouds are covering the sun, my bank account is draining awfully close to empty, and I can't afford more coffee, and my friends, my colleagues, my wife, and maybe even my kids start to browbeat me with some home truths …!?
The thing is, the Truth of who GOD is to me and in me, should always motivate my actions – not my feelings (which are always subject to change)!
Anyway, the FACT remains that GOD loves us and hasn’t left us to fend for ourselves (no matter what our circumstances scream), especially when we don’t ‘feel’ his presence!
And the easiest way back to life is as per the psalmist's instructions: Find something, ‘anything’ that you feel grateful for and begin to thank him for it. THEN your heart will overflow with life forever!
