Tragic storms hit east Texas. People died. Many were injured. Homes and businesses were destroyed.
We ask, “Where was God?”
Some say that He doesn’t exist, but what happened in east Texas does not change the fact that there is a God. God is the only logical, reasonable explanation for the existence of our universe.
Some wonder how He could let these things happen, but this does not change the fact that God is in control of all things. Children do not always understand what happens under the control of their parents, but it doesn’t mean their parents are not in control. Just because we don’t understand what happens under God’s control does not mean that He is not in control.
Some doubt His love for us, but NO MATTER WHAT we can know that He loves us. He proved that once and for all in the giving of His Son, Jesus Christ. We have no reason to ever doubt how much He loves us.
So, where was God? He was in the same place that He has always been. The same place He was when He made this world for us. The same place He was every other time we asked, “Why?” The same place He was when Jesus died for our sins upon the cruel cross of Calvary. The same place He will always be.
We will not always understand, but we can always know where God is.
“Seek the Lord…and find Him…He is not far from each one of us” (Acts 17:27).
