WHERE IS GOD?

ORIGINAL ART & INSPIRATION BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Revelation 14:2 “And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps.”

God proves His strength, power and wisdom by controlling the strongest winds- by churning the waters of the sea – by determining that only He has these things in His hands.  No matter how man tries, he’ll never be able to change the setting and rising of the sun; the provision He graciously gives to all His creatures; the moon and stars; the warming and cooling of the planet.  He is our Almighty God.

We see His power in the hurricanes that currently swept through our country.   The wherewithal contained in His little finger can stir the mightiest of seas.  We also see His wisdom.  It seem that in times of adversity, He brings out the best in people.  There are those first responders – the life savers, the everyday heroes – neighbors, coming to the aid of those who have lost all their worldly goods.

People may ask where is God in the midst of disaster after disaster.  How could a loving God put these tragedies in the lives of innocent people?  What is the lesson to be learned from all this?  Even in those times, God is with His people – caring for them, rescuing them, lifting them out of the pit.

I do not understand God’s wisdom.  It doesn’t make sense to me at times.  I don’t know why these things happen, but I do know there’s a purpose for all things under heaven.  In all things, God is there and as Job said when all seemed lost – “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.”

What comfort this gives to all of us.  Even in the worst of circumstances, God is there with us, and when the final day of judgment arrives the angels will announce His return and we will see Him face to face in all His glory.

COME QUICKLY, LORD, JESUS!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Yes, there is great comfort in knowing that God is God. When I was a younger adult going through school, I remember Elisabeth Elliot saying something to the effect that we shouldn’t ask why. I shook my head and thought that was crazy. Things happen that we cannot fathom in the depths of despair. Sometimes all we can do is kneel at His throne weeping, the only words being “why.” And yet, I find myself asking “why” less and less even as the hardships get bigger and more intimidating.

    I still don’t think there’s anything wrong with asking God “why,” but as I get older I realize that He understands far more than I do. He sees the end from the beginning. He wants me to trust that He’s taking care of me.

    I hardly ask why anymore and simply ask that He help me through it.

      Asking why is part of our human nature. I don’t think it’s wrong either. God gives us the sense to reason things out, the intellect to weed through the muck and the ability to be discerning. We are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made. Still God is way bigger than us and what he does, doesn’t always meet our expectations, so we wonder why. That’s when we need to be still and know that he’s got it all under control.
