The question we need to ask ourselves is, ‘What can make one who once felt close to God feel distant?’ Can hardship, sickness, persecution? No – all these cannot stop anyone who diligently seeks God. Remember, this is not your first assembly; you have been a member of many assemblies/ churches in the past. Can we call your movement from one assembly to another a sign of one who is diligently seeking God? How do we seek God? Is it by running after men of God without faith? Remember, faith is the cause of victory, the means, the instrument and armour by which we overcome. When we run after men of God without faith, anything can stop us – persecution can stop us, hardship can stop us, sickness can stop us (Romans 8:35).
There is a need to include God in everything we do. If you go around churches without God, I mean without faith, you achieve nothing. If you go around men of God without faith, you achieve nothing. If you are in any assembly without faith, you would still leave for another because the thing that is chasing you would not stop except through faith.
