When God Seems to Withdraw

“It becomes very discouraging and very depressing when God seems to withdraw from us in the dark season of the soul.  If you did not know God, there would be no longing for His return.  His distance wouldn’t bother you.  But when saints feel the distance from God, it increases our appreciation, our affection for Him, our dependence on Him.  Explanations are a substitute for trust.”
