My Pastor Steve said once in a sermon that if God feels distant, acknowledge it but expect Him to come near and when He does, reach out and receive the Spirit. It’s hard to discern at times what God has in store for us. All that can be done is to pray and be humble. Listen and follow the path He gives, look forward to what He will do through you, and look for ways God can use you right where you are. He needs your help right in your work place, dorm, apartment, or neighborhood.
There might be something right in your neighborhood you can organize for His purpose. Think of simple things like knowing your neighbor’s Birthday and wishing them a happy birthday. Get together with other neighbors to discuss ideas. I’d like to share this video with you as inspiration to apply your faith. Just click this link to watch: Here I Am Lord.
For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. – Proverbs 2:6
