Kanaan Message for Today
You are in great distress, because you cannot sense the presence of God and your relationship with Him seems dead. God is acting as if He were a stranger to you. He seems so far away. You are beginning to doubt His love … Believe that He is showing you His special love now. He wants to make your love pure and genuine. That is why He is testing it. Love which has stood the test is precious and brings a rich reward. This love proves itself by continuing to trust God in trials and temptations, by obediently walking in His ways, and by making sacrifices for Him. No sacrifice is more precious than that offered in times of spiritual drought. Such love, which is not based on feelings, is the greatest present you can give to the Father.
