The doctor gave you bad news, and the question formed immediately: “Where are You, Lord?” You thought you had job security when your manager called you in. Now you’re unemployed and the question troubles you: “Where are You, Lord?”
You can’t quite put your finger on it, but you can’t escape the feeling that your teenage daughter is slipping away from you. Her new friends don’t share your values and her new attitudes are keeping you awake at night: “Where are You, Lord?”
You’re in good company. David must have wondered where God was when Saul was hunting him like an animal. Elijah wondered where God was when Jezebel threatened his life.
The truth is that God is there, and He is working – always. He is making something out of nothing. He is in the early stages of transforming your heartache to a heartsong. He is making something glorious out of something hideous.
Quiet your heart and renew your faith. Regain your focus and take a new grip. God never checks out on anybody. You can’t see it and you don’t feel it, but you must believe it: God is working – and He is working all things for your good.
