9 Help us, God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake.
10 Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?” Psalm 79:9-10
When you’re being persecuted or when you see others being persecuted time and again without anyone stepping in, it’s easy to ask that last question ourselves, “Where is our God? Could He not have prevented this?” The same could be said of tragic events and natural disasters, “where is God? Where is God?” It’s a very real question under very real circumstances.
I cannot answer that basic question. Others have tried. No one really knows why He allows or even causes certain events in the lives of God-fearing Believers.
It ultimately becomes a trust issue.
Do you trust Him enough that He knows what He’s doing?
Can you trust Him to have the purest of motives in whatever He does or allows?
Suffice to say, sometimes the Lord God Almighty is truly baffling. That’s probably a good thing because if we had all the answers, we wouldn’t need God.
