Some Christians and a lot of the heathens who believe not are asking, where is God? Well, I know exactly where He is, He abides wherever He is welcome. You cannot speak evil of our Lord and expect Him to cater to your needs.
John 14:23 If a man love Me, he will keep My words: My Father will love him, and we will come and make our abode with Him.
God is not at our beckon and call but rather we are at His beckon and call. We don’t want to be so arrogant as some of the folks in the Bible. They did not agree with God and His ways so they made their own gods out of stone, wood and earth. It is pretty convenient to have homemade gods because they will tell you exactly what you want to hear. When you begin your day no one knows what mood their god is in until you tell it! There is a problem with having a homemade god, he never leaves the place where you mount him.
Mark 16:19 After the Lord spoke to the believers, He was raptured back up to heaven and sat at the right hand of God.
We know where our God is, He sits on the throne of authority where He can oversee the entire world. Our God is not stuck on top of a mountain and subject to the elements, nor is He hidden in a dark room behind some curtains. Anyone who desires to can see our God and if they believe they can have a personal relationship with Him. Our Lord has just one command, that we play by His rules, so we must nail our lusts to the cross.
Jeremiah 2:6 Israel would not say, where is the Lord that brought us up out of the land of Egypt?
The Lord that delivered Israel out of Egypt was where He always was, He was in the midst of the people who abandoned Him. The people who cry out to God the loudest are the same folks that hid themselves from Him. They feel that He is too hard to serve, let me propose this question, what is harder to serve? The God who loves you or the sin that wants to hold you in bondage? The demon spirit of confusion has a lot of ignorant people right where he wants them. The devil knows how easy it is for him to manipulate ignorant folks, he takes full advantage over these “push overs”.
Acts 5:12 By the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people and great fear came upon the people.
For those of us who believe, we live by the faith of the Son of God. But the signs and wonders that our faith produce are for those who are yet to believe. We don’t need God to manifest in order for us to believe in Him, but the world does, they don’t know where God is. If we can get them to listen to us, we can lead them to Jesus. When I was searching for the Lord I found Him, I was amazed at how close He was the whole time. He couldn’t have been very far away because the instant I asked Him to come into my life He was there. God will always be where our humility needs Him to be, we don’t command Him to come, we invite Him.
I tithe by my faith in God,
He will open the windows of Heaven.
He will give me many blessings, He will honor my faith.
I cannot please my Father without faith, so I lend my ear to His Word.
My faith will not fail me
because my Lord will not fail me.
