He Is There in the Test –
Even When You Can’t Feel Him!
Some of you are feeling that because you can not hear the LORD or feel Him, that He has left you somehow. But He wanted me to bring forth this scripture to you because.
I know there is more than one person who has never faced this before, and it is such a tender time, and unless you understand the plot of the enemy in it, you could fall away.
But here is a word that God had me share with someone who was going through it and I felt to add this passage of scripture from 1 Peter.
I pray that this will help someone to know, that He loves you and is doing stuff in you, even when you can’t feel Him or see Him.
[You should] be exceedingly glad on this account, though now for a little while you may be distressed by trials and suffer temptations, So that [the genuineness] of your faith may be tested, [your faith] which is infinitely more precious than the perishable gold which is tested and purified by fire. [This proving of your faith is intended] to redound to [your] praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) is revealed.
Without having seen Him, you love Him; though you do not [even] now see Him, you believe in Him and exult and thrill with inexpressible and glorious (triumphant, heavenly) joy. [At the same time] you receive the result (outcome, consummation) of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:5-9.
