Perhaps it’s hard to stick with God these days - I mean, look at the natural disasters, the trials that we all have to face.
But I believe this is all a part of God’s divine plan.
Or even yelling out “2012 is coming!”
And we wonder where our God is amongst these devastating situations.
He is here. Right among us. He is here in our hearts, wiping our tears away. He is here with us giving us courage to persist. He has been here all along.
Let’s make a change in ourselves.
Have more faith in Him for He is good. Today, let’s be more like Daniel. Daniel kept praying and continued to praise God even in time of trials. (Daniel 6)
It’s true that he didn’t know what God was planning.
We don’t know either.
But by faith, by trusting Him, trusting His plans.
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28.
God never fails to listen to our prayers. Wherever we are or any time of the day. What the world needs now are prayers. So, let’s pray for our brothers and sisters all over the world.
Where is God now?
He is standing right there in the rubble suffering with those who suffer, and weeping with those weep and binding up the hearts of the broken hearted. God is there in the strength of that torn nation’s strong, resilient people. God is there in the presence and efforts of every soldier, aid worker, and other participant working to cope with the initial stages of recovery in this disaster. God is there in the funds donated to aid organizations to individuals around the world. God is there in the prayers and concerns of those individual and others.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
