Some days it is very dark. It is so dark that it seems that God has gone into hiding. Maybe God has! God certainly went into hiding in the days of the Assyrian invasion of land of Judea and God said so!
“I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord your Redeemer.” (Isaiah 54:8)
What is this about? God’s ways are not our ways. It is ours to ask the reason only to understand that God’s discipline is for our benefit. It is here where faith is often tested. When God seems to be hidden from you, do you still trust God’s everlasting kindness and compassion for you? – Ron Friesen
