Why People Run from God?
There are a lot of reasons people run from God. Sometimes it’s because we feel like we’re not good enough, or that we don’t deserve His love. Other times it’s because we’re angry at Him, or we feel like He has let us down. And sometimes we just get so caught up in the busyness of life that we forget He’s even there.
Maybe we grew up in a strict religious environment and we rebelled against it by doing things we knew would disappoint Him. Or maybe we made some bad choices in our lives, and we feel like we’re too far gone for God to forgive us.
Whatever the reason, if you’re running from God, I want you to know that He’s still chasing after you. And He’s not going to give up on you until you let Him catch you.
How To Know If You’re Running from God
If you’re not sure if you’re running from God or not, here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Do I avoid talking about my faith because I’m afraid of what other people will think?
- Do I feel guilty when I pray or read my Bible?
- Do I make excuses for why I can’t go to church?
- Do I only turn to God when things are going bad?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then chances are you are running from God. But the good news is that it’s never too late to turn around and go back to Him. No matter how far you’ve run, or how long it’s been since you’ve talked to Him, He’s still there waiting for you with open arms. All you must do is turn around and go back to Him.
Why You Should Come Back to God
There are really no words that can describe how amazing it feels when you finally come back to God after running from Him for so long. The weight that has been sitting on your shoulders for years suddenly lifts, and you finally feel at peace again. You realize that no matter how far away you ran, or how lost you felt, He was always there waiting for you with open arms.
And He loves you as much as He did when you first started running from Him. If you’re feeling lost or discouraged, know that there is hope! You can come back to God no matter what has happened in your past, and He will welcome you with open arms.
How To Come Back to God
Coming back to God may seem impossible, but it doesn’t have to be!
First, remember that He loves you unconditionally and there is nothing you can do to change that. No matter how far away you’ve run or how much damage you think you’ve done, He is always there waiting for you with open arms.
Second, take some time to reflect on why you started running from Him. Once you identify those reasons, start working on making some changes in your life so that you can move forward in your relationship with Him.
Finally, reach out to others who have been through similar experiences and lean on them for support as you take these first steps back toward God.
