We can hear stories about bad thing happening all over the world. Sometimes, we get scared, discouraged, worried or angry about the horrible things that happen around us. We can wonder where God is when these bad things happen, and why He is letting them come to pass.
It is natural to wonder why God would let horrible things unfold, and where He is when such awful events take place; but we must remember that God is all powerful, and that He has a plan, and that He is in control. We humans make plans, but they fall off course so often because of things outside of our control. Remember that God saved humanity with His son Jesus, who is coming again. God is right here with us, even amidst the worse situations. And unlike humans, God is in control. He knows the outcome is victory, and we can trust Him for that!
Do not worry. Put your anger aside. Let go of fear. Have courage. The Bible tells us that “Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world.” John 16:32-33
Is there anything worrying you about in the world or the people you know? How can you find God in that place or situation?
