Spiritual renewal

spiritual renewalIf a Christian comes to the point of doubting or even denying God’s existence, saying, “I don’t hear His voice,” or “I don’t see His hand,” or “I never feel His presence,” it’s because of a lack of repentance—we have shut Him out. We have become deaf to His voice, blind to His hand, and callous to His presence (Isa. 6:9-10). Instead of proclaiming far and wide the death of God, we should fall to our knees in penitence and cry out, “I believe! Help my unbelief! Please, Lord, heal me! Open my eyes, unstop my ears, and remove the callous from my heart!” Such a prayer God longs to hear and hastens to answer.
