Where Is God?

where is god?

Where is God? How many times have we asked that question?

It’s easy to look to God with a paintbrush of blame instead of approaching him with humility and helplessness. In our revealing of life, we forget about God.  We may attend church and give something in the offering plate, but beyond that, there is an absence of God in our lives.

Consider how much time we spend occupied with everything else but God. It’s sad that God is treated like vintage Tiffany silverware; we only use him on special occasions. We remember God in the midst of overwhelming problems. We realize the necessity of God in our lives only when our troubles make us fearful.

God is accused of being the instigator of our crisis, and little praise is given to him when we are doing so good. Amazingly, God doesn’t have an ego, so He is not affected by our insensitivity to Him. Instead, we find waiting for us God’s compassion, grace, and love—a love we cannot understand.

How often God is misunderstood because we cannot see what’s behind the curtain of predicament. We see the problem but we don’t see God in the problem. “Look, I go forward, but He is not there, And backward, but I cannot perceive Him; When He works on the left hand, I cannot behold Him; When He turns to the right hand, I cannot see Him. But He knows the way that I take.” Job 23:8-10

A job was a man with whom no one can compare. As righteous as he was, he wondered about God’s location. When he had searched all the familiar places that he expected God to be, he came up empty.  At the end of his search, he concluded, “He knows the way that I take.”  This we must believe and accept, “God knows the way that you take.”
