Why does God let us feel like he is so far away after experiencing times of closeness? Why does God move us from the dazzle into the dark?
“Faith grows deep in the dark.”
Faith sets deep roots when we move from the dazzling experience and presence of God into moments of confusion, darkness, fog, suffering, sacrifice, and trial. Faith grows deep in the dark. Seasons of darkness draw us into a deeper trust, surrender, and dependance on God. That is what dark season have the capacity to do for us.
“They require that we send down deep roots.”
Jesus is in your darkness. In the darkness we discover that Jesus was there all along.
Homily begins at 20:40.
