How to Love God When You Feel God Has Let You Down

How do you maintain a fervent love for God when you feel God has let you down. What do you do when you feel God has treated you unfairly, left you unprotected, undefended or abandoned? How do you respond to the seeds that lie within you questioning His love and your lack?

How do you keep the pursuit of God the main thing when you feel that the One you’re in pursuit of has, in someway, short-changed you and left you hanging out to dry? It’s not easy.

I have to admit, been there, done that.

The Life of David

The life of David encourages me. In many ways David faced the very same things I am talking about here. His life as a man after God’s own heart is filled with seasons of abandonment, unmet expectations and unanswered prayers.

Psalm 13:1 “How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?”

Psalm 69:1-3 “Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God.

Ever felt like this?

Even though David’s prayers are bold and brutally honest, he never allows his lack nor his circumstances to derail his love and pursuit of God. This is key.

Here are just two responses David gives when things go bad.

Psalm 13:5-6 “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.”

Psalm 69:30 “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.”

Give Thanks

Personally, in the midst of my disappointment I find strength to do one thing: I look for an occasion to give thanks to the Lord and do it. Why? Giving thanks shifts the atmosphere in my heart.

Initially it’s hard, but the more I give thanks the more my mind is renewed and my spirit is refreshed. His love fills my heart and hope and faith are activated. This is exactly what David did.

Here are a few other things I do when I am struggling in this area.

  1. I hold fast to knowing that God is love and God is good. I must hold on to these two convictions in every circumstance I face in life. His thoughts and ways are higher than mine. I trust who He is and know that He does all things well. His goal is to conform me into the image of Jesus not merely to make me feel good.
  2. I continue to worship through my lack of understanding. There really is no other way around it. I display the depths of my love in the place of greatest suffering. Whether I sense injustice or not, I will praise Him.
  3. am real with God, honorably. I have learned to go to the Lord and put my thoughts and feelings on the table. I do so with the picture of a Heavenly Father who loves and cares for me. 
  4. I embrace the pain to grow. While facing the circumstance I embrace the pain and try to squeeze every drop out of it to gain greater wisdom and revelation. I want to learn more about God and more about myself. I want the pain to make me not break me.

It’s Possible

Yes, it is possible to grow in your passion for God when you feel like He has left you behind. Your greatest reward is to thank Him in your weakest moment. To worship God when we don’t understand is the supreme offering we give this side of heaven.

Good word!  This is exactly what I do, worship Jesus and praise His Name. Yes, it is a push sometimes but I am learning that if I just do it my heart will follow. 🙂  Sometimes when I am praying for all of these sick people, I become so sad that there isn’t any improvement in them. It is then that I need to look to Daddy and know that His ways are better than mine and I trust Him to answer according to His timing and not mine. He usually shows me things He is doing in them or… Read more »

i think this is a subject everyone can relate to – glad you wrote on it.   worshiping in the midst of not understanding or having the answers is key for me.  i really have related to lamentations 3 as well – reminding myself of His lovingkindness that does not fail me regardless of my present circumstances.  i believe it is absolutely realistic that we grow in our passion for the Lord in these trying times – it is where we meet Him most because we have to decide if we really trust His leadership when we do not understand… Read more »

Some real great verses coming out of Lamentations 3 that definitely apply.
 
Lam. 3:23-25 “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; ”

I can sympathize with Jane bcuz I have visited that feeling quite a few times now. Although, I totally agree with the counsel given by Greg. As soon as I started to be “tempted” to feel as Jane has…I had a thought to worship God /Jesus until that feeling had left from me and no its not easy. This is such a hard subject Greg,
to address with believers. But? I believe you are Christ led and, The Lord is using you to help us perceive this issue in a different light.

Exactly. No presence. I’ve heard all the Pastorific messages, even the messages of love and fatherly guidance. But it just seems that the messages I receive are blank. Study groups, prayer, church involvement, journaling, paid counseling, I could name them all, as I have tried to receive God’s message of love, victory and righteousness. But not for me. My experience with having a relationship with God/Jesus is blank. Nothing. Well, not really. I guess it is more like…being really let down, disappointed and forgotten. Being where I once was, leaning on God for my daily life, my success, my being,… Read more »

Really great piece. Thanks for the encouragement and I do share your opinion on ways out of the valley when you feel ‘abandoned by God’.

It feels like I have been enduring my whole life. One set of Wait For It after another.

I am thinking well just give up then, because every time I choose to say Fear Not Only Believe, it just ends up in disappointment.

We are called to die to self and sometimes the flesh wants to hold on too tight. Read what happened tp Job or the Apostle Paul yet they still loved God. You will never suffer like either one of those people nor will I. Get your eyes off yourself and ask God to forgive you. Scriptures say we must share in the sufferings of Jesus Christ.

Just what I needed to hear. Recently, I had come to a place where I was more obedient to God than ever, and it seems like the gates of hell have broken loose, and it has left me feeling like God has abandoned me when I need him the most, even though for the first time in a while, I having been living in obedience to God. My faith has been shaken like never before, but somehow I also feel stronger in my faith than ever before (as crazy as that sounds). This helps me to “praise through the pain.”… Read more »

I understand what you are saying there and I agree. But where am lost is a man of God had so many promises from God to be fulfilled, but he has died before they are fulfilled. God says He keeps His promises and they will come to pass, but now this man has died before seeing them…please help me understand coz am stuck at that point I don’t know what to think and I don’t want to doubt God.

Hi Jane. Good question here. I see a couple things happening with your statement. First, God is fully trustworthy and cannot lie. From that point, either the person who received the promise was mistaken (we see and know in part) or the promises will be fulfilled in the next life. Remember, we will rule and reign with Jesus ON THE EARTH. Dying is a means of gaining greater glory as we rule and reign with Jesus. Also, let your questions bring you into a deeper relationship with the Lord not alienation from Him. He loves you and your questions. 😉… Read more »

Hello Sujith. Thanks for stopping by the blog and joining the discussion. I just prayed for you asking the Lord to give you the desire of your heart. But until that desire is realized, I believe you made the right decision to offer thanks and remind yourself of His goodness. If we can offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving in seasons where we have the greatest disappointments we mature in love. I love what the Lord is doing in you!

My neighbors were generational satanists. During one of their rituals, I felt as though I was dying and going to hell, eternally separated from God. The pain was indescribable, the sense of abandonment, complete. When the Lord brought healing, He said, “I was always with you and I never left you. I was with you at the time and I didn’t want you to see what you saw or experience what you experienced.

Thanks, Greg – I appreciate your reply and response. I am definitely going to be looking into the Psalms during this time, and by His grace, things have gotten a bit easier since I first wrote. My husband and I have made a pact to claim a verse for each week that we will center our thoughts around, end our conversations with, and pray according to, so that we may set our minds on God and not on our problems or our pain. We really have much to be thankful for – it’s all what we choose to focus on.
