Joel 1:1 – 1 The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
People will often go through seasons where they either feel very close to God, or they feel very distant. It might not happen all of a sudden, but for whatever reason, something has changed for the good or the bad. Why do we go through those seasons in our walk with the Lord?
As I was reading today, I was struck by one word in this passage – word. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the Word and in today’s scripture we are told that the “word of the Lord that came to Joel“. I was reminded that Jesus came to earth to be with us and when He left, He sent the Holy Spirit to make sure we would still feel His presence. When we feel distant from the Lord, it is not that He has moved. Remember, He came to earth to be with you. Our distance is created by our own movement. Jesus came to us, it is up to us to move towards Him.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
