I have been asked recently how a person can believe in a loving God who really cares when there are so many terrible things happening around the world. Certainly, we have had our share of those happenings in the United States. That is a good question and one that we can’t avoid answering. First, God does love us and that should never be questioned or forgotten. God is always available to us and He wants the best for those who believe and have faith in His promises. He certainly does not want to see us hurt but that doesn’t mean Christians won’t have trials and tribulations during their time on this Earth. We will and that can’t be denied.
The good news is that God provides us a tremendous capacity to overcome whatever comes our way. But we must remain faithful and obedient regardless of our circumstances. The Old Testament book of Joshua is real good reading for anybody who doubts that God is faithful and always keeps His promises. We also have many examples in the New Testament of God’s love and concern for His children. Jesus gives us real encouragement when He spoke in Mark 11:22-24:
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
My prayer for all is that we won’t get discouraged over world conditions and lose faith. Anybody who has doubts about how things will ultimately work out should read the Book of Revelation. The final result is laid out there and it’s as clear as a bell. May God bless all of our readers and their families. May He also continue to bless America in spite of its shortcomings.
