When God Seems to Hide

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 10-12.
What do you do when it appears that God has hidden Himself at a time you desperately need Him? Do what the psalmist did, speaking to God of this very thing,
Why do You stand afar off, O LORD?
Why do You hide in times of trouble?
The wicked in his pride persecutes the poor;
Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised.
(Psalm 10.1, 2)
The psalmist asked God why He hid Himself, especially during times of trouble, but the psalmist also knew that God cared and while it appeared that He stood afar off, the psalmist still asked God to intervene, knowing that He would appear and help.
When you struggle with something, even over what God has done or not done, speak to Him of it, not challenging Him, but knowing that He cares, and speak to Him to help you, and He shall deliver you in time of need.
