Finding God

Jill Briscoe

Are you going through the motions, doing all the right things, but still can’t “find” God? Reading the Bible, going to church, volunteering on mission trips, attending a Christian college, or hanging out with Christian friends are just a few ways you might think you can find God, only to feel when things get dark, dry, or you face delays and doubts, God is not there.

Jill has a shocking answer—stop spending so much energy looking and let Him find you! Put yourself deliberately in His presence and slow down! He’s already there, waiting for you.

If you aren’t sure you believe that, listen to Jill teach the stories of Esther, Moses, and Habakkuk. Esther was married off to a dangerous king and had to approach him to save the lives of the Jews. Moses had to return to Egypt and face the Pharaoh. And Habakkuk had to find patience with what he perceived as God’s inaction in a dismal world.

You’ll be uplifted as you hear Jill explain how God was working in all of those situations, and He works in ours, too, even when we don’t see Him.

Messages From This Series:

We often ask, “Where is God? I look for Him, but I do not see Him. I listen for Him, but I do not hear Him. It is dark—so very dark. Not pitch black perhaps, but my life is lived in shadows. How can I find God in the shadows?”

In this message, Jill Briscoe looks at the life of Esther to uncover answers to those questions.

Scripture: Esther

I believe in Jesus, but for so long I’ve been spiritually dry. I made a mistake. A bad mistake! And since then, I’ve been living in a desert of regrets in a dry and barren land… thirsty, thirsty, thirsty. It’s been a long time since I’ve experienced a sense of the supernatural. I feel isolated, marginalized, full of self-doubt—a failure!

If this sounds like you, Jill Briscoe offers help in her message based on the life of Moses.

Scripture: Exodus 3, Exodus 4

Is your heart asking, “How long, O Lord”? Who or what are you waiting for? A job? A friend to be a friend? Someone to love you or for you to love back? Are you waiting for a break—or a baby? A child to say they’re sorry, reconciliation, or an important prayer to be answered? Maybe you’re waiting for the bullying or betrayal to stop—or lying, hating, injustice, corruption, or hurt. Or perhaps you are in a crisis of faith that needs to be resolved.

In this message from Habakkuk, Jill Briscoe offers encouragement for the tough times in life.

Scripture: Habakkuk
