But as I looked into her eyes, I could see and feel that she was living and resting in the omnipresence of God. Have you seen all of the television reports, read all of the articles about the Wedgewood tragedy? Those who are Christ followers are talking about the power and the presence of God. Now I know some of you are asking, why. “Ed, you are talking about the omnipresence of God. Where was God Wednesday night at Wedgewood Baptist Church? Where was God at Columbine High School? Where was God in Conyers, Georgia? Where was God 2,000 years ago when his only Son was bruised, battered and tortured for my sins? Where was God?” God was in Wedgewood Baptist Church. God was in Columbine High School. God was in Conyers, Georgia. God was there when his only begotten child was abused and tortured for your shortcomings and mine. God is everywhere. He is ever present. We can’t get away from Him. He is not limited by time and space. There isn’t a place where He is not.
Why, though, do things like this occur? Let me tell you something. Nowhere in the Bible are we promised safety in this life. You will not find it in the Bible. Contrary to the health and wealth TV evangelists, who are totally unbiblical and take scripture out of context in record numbers, we are not promised safety in this life. We are promised safety in eternity.Ed Young stated in fact, the Bible says that it is God’s will that we suffer. We are to go through tough times. We are to have times when we feel the torture of life. Think about history. There have been so many bad things which have happened to good people.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved.
