– “The world has just exploded into chaos. My home is gone, resources have dried up and there appears no help forthcoming. Where in the world is God?”
– “There is fear in my heart. The political landscape is frightening beyond anything I have ever known. The future is blacked out. Is God aware? Where is He?”
– “My spouse just found someone else more desirable than me. My heart is one gigantic open wound. Where, oh where, is God?”
– “Little was left to the imagination in my doctor’s prognosis … but my imagination is running wild anyway. I can suddenly see my life’s horizon and I’m terrified. Please tell me where God is!”
– “Working two jobs, no more cable TV, making do with one car and eating less and still the wolf’s pounding on the door drowns out every other sound in life. Has anyone see God? Where is He?”
– “Both of our children fled our home as teens and never looked back. I don’t even know where or how they are. There’s a never-ending ache in my gut that’s part loneliness and part guilt over parenting mistakes. I wish I knew where God was; He may be able to help.”
Six scenarios out of possible thousands … any one of which has enough potential energy to destroy any hope we previously had for the future. So with shoulders slumping, steps slowing and dreams made laughable we ask a question that comes from the deepest part of our pain, fear and bewilderment: Where is God?
There is an answer to that question.
HE IS AWARE … HE IS AVAILABLE … HE IS ABLE!
We say that nothing is impossible with God and yet He appears unable to resist responding to our cries. He is a Magnet of Mercy drawn to our side when we face a crisis. It doesn’t matter what the need is, as long as we don’t forget what the answer is.
Or who He is.
This week avail yourself of the available Savior. Your cry has reached his ears and He will set your world right. It may not be overnight and might possibly not be done as you would have preferred, but He will respond. He’s just that kind of Father!
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”
I Peter 5:7 New Living Translation
May you have joy for your journey!
