It is shocking and sad to venture out into the media of this world…so much focus on anger, malice, sexual immorality, greed, idolatry and evil desires. So many people choosing to ignore God and sure to push anything aside that may reference God…and yet when evil kills and destroys…people wonder where is God in all this? God is right here with us, in the midst of everything…people want a human view of God…if we could just have free will for the good things in life and then God could step in and stop the bad things from happening…God is not an official in a sporting event, waiting to blow the whistle on anyone who commits a foul. God is about a personal relationship, if we want to know where is God in all this we need to start asking ourselves where am I in my relationship with God?
When we come to God we come with Faith…What is Faith?
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” – Hebrews 11:1
We come to God looking for Hope…Where is Hope?
“…because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.” – Romans 5:3-5
When we come to God we look for Love…How does he Love us?
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8
May you have faith in the hope God provides with His love.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
