Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God? But our God is in the heavens: He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased (Ps 115:2-3); ..Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly (Job 1:21-22)~ We don’t always understand, but we have to accept what God “allows”; no matter how tough it is to experience! He is sovereign .. Absolutely righteous… He is God all by Himself…owing explanation or reason to no one. We must humble ourselves under the hand of God. Even if under all of our losses, we are reduced to our lowest and most ‘naked’ state. The same who gave hath taken away. This is the hardest of times for us to try and understand but even in this day, we must look above the circumstances, and keep our eye upon Him. Afflictions must not divert us from, nor turn us against, but quicken us to God. If in all our troubles we look to the Lord, He will support us because He is righteous, because He is good, because He is God! Hope in this truth is the strength of our resolve: I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living (Ps 27:13). All we have is from His gift and by His grace we are reserved to salvation! Discontent and impatience charge God with folly and incite man’s wisdom as the perceived greater good. Against these things we must carefully watch! God is not mocked and He’s CERTAINLY no fool! Even in our worst of circumstances, God alone is worthy of all glory, honor and praise! For those families and friends that are affected by the tragedies of these days… I pray that you may all find true rest and peace in the arms of The Lord! May the unbeliever experience a life-changing revelation. May we all not wait until tragedy strikes to seek the face of The Lord!!!
