Coram Deo: Daily Meditations on God’s Presence - Friday, October 18, 2013

Jesus Leaves the Temple

Matthew 24:1–2

It is a terrible thing to think that the Lord can become so fed up with those who claim to be His servants that He departs from their presence. God sometimes seems absent to us because we have grieved Him (Zech. 1:3). If you feel as if the Lord is far from you this day, consider whether there is unconfessed sin in your life. If we feel as though God is absent, this does not necessarily mean we are being disciplined, but it is a possibility we should consider.

For further study:

Psalm 51:11

The Bible in a year:

Isaiah 65–66

For the weekend:

Jeremiah 1–5
