Where are You, God?
Wrong question. The fact is- God is in the same place as He always is: with you. If you feel like He’s vanished- you’re the one who left. He promised never to leave you nor forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5) If you feel alone—you better start asking yourself where you wandered off to…and why.
God doesn’t leave us (Deuteronomy 31:8) - not even for a quick milli-second. He takes no rest stops on our journey. We do, though. Sometimes, they’re not just rest stops; sometimes we set up camp and move on in. We tend to veer off the path, or stop short when it’s not quite the destination we thought we were heading… But what if instead of asking where God is… we asked Him “Where do you want me?” or “Why do you have me here?” or even “What am I supposed to do here?” You see, God isn’t a god of silence; He just wants you to ask the right questions. When you’re in the middle of ‘nowhere’ and can’t seem to find Him, look around for His existence. Seek Him, and He will show Himself to you. (Jeremiah 29:13)
Everything little thing God does to and for you is for a reason. (Jeremiah 29:11) There’s a purpose to His will. There’s meaning to His Words. (2 Timothy 3:16) He speaks to you because… He loves you. Instead of trying so hard to refute or refuse His offering, make the easy choice to be excited about His gift to you. Because every little thing He gives you is a gift. (Philippians 4:19) Are you willing to take the time to acknowledge, accept and act on that gift? (Philippians 2:13) Or are you going to ignore His presence and continue to wonder where He is?
