Where is God?

May it be in the midst of a raging typhoon hitting the country or in a tumultuous storm hitting our personal lives, the question always comes up: Where is God?

At the onset of the torrential rains early this week, I also received news of several deaths in the families of some of my friends. And these deaths had nothing to do with the weather condition but the impact is pretty much the same or even worse. 

Again, the question surfaces: Where is God?

Let me tell you what I think…

When the casket was being lowered, God was embracing the grieving widow…

When the doctors broke the news that it was malignant, God’s arms pulled the family together…

When the marriage broke down, God’s whispers kept the children believing…

When the finances ran dry, God’s hand somehow provided the next meal…

 

God may seem absent only when we insist on how we want him to appear. Sometimes, God doesn’t come in a way we expect Him to but it doesn’t mean He isn’t there. 

Proverbs 3:5 says:

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”

 And in Isaiah, God reminds us:

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)

Today, I encourage you to look more closely and see the tangible presence of God in whatever situation you find yourself in. 

And you will realize that God isn’t distant. He is near. He is real. He is very much closer than you think.

In the midst of your storm, look closely, my friend. Don’t be surprised to see…

God has always been there!

In Christ’s love,

Bobby Q.
