Longing For Communication With God

 . . . lean not on your own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5

For the spiritually dead, there is no communication with God. Millions of people long for a world of joy, light, harmony, and peace; instead, they are engulfed in a world of pessimism, darkness, discord, and turmoil. They search for happiness, but it eludes them, just as a sunbeam or a shaft of light eludes a child who tries to catch it.

Many give up and give in to pessimism. Often their despondent attitude leads to a circle of cocktail parties or bars where they obliterate the reality of their world with the unreality of alcohol. Sometimes they are led to drugs or an all-consuming pursuit of a hobby or a sport. All these are symptoms of the great escapist disease caused by an insidious infection called sin.

Many people want to dissect God under their own microscopes. After establishing their own methods of analysis, they come to no conclusions. God remains the great cosmic silence, unknown and unseeing. However, God does communicate with those who are willing to obey Him. He penetrates the dark silence with free, life-giving discoveries in nature, the human conscience, Scripture, and the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ. No one has assurance of peace and happiness, until he or she has put their trust and faith in Him. In Proverbs 3:5, the Bible says: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart." God does hear the prayer of a soul that humbly repents.
