You can think God is far away if you experience heartbreak, difficulties, unanswered prayers, or simply fill your time with things other than Him. However, the Bible is replete with proof that He is a relational God who longs for a close, personal relationship with you. There is no place we may go where we are not in God’s presence and under His watchful sight. God is aware of every aspect of our life. Furthermore, He will never forsake us or desert us, according to Hebrews 13:5. We should thus put ourselves in a situation where we can feel His presence, hear His voice, notice His work all around us, and invite Him closer to our hearts when we feel as though He is far away. There are moments when we need Him but are at a loss for words or where to start. Say His name first, and then express your innermost cry. According to Scripture, the name of Jesus has power because Jesus answers to the name when His loved ones cry to Him, in addition to the fact that “salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” The authors of the classics referred to this kind of hushed prayer as “breath prayers.” I use the phrases “Jesus, I need You” or “Jesus, give me a heart for You” when I pray aloud to feel His presence.
