Where Was God?

September 11, 2018

I remember where I was when terrorists attacked on Sept. 11, 2001. If you’re old enough, I bet you remember where you were too. But, where was God?

Where was God when the towers fell? Where was God when the people were trapped in an inferno? Where was God when the first responders and other heroes suffered and died? Where was God when the plane crashed in the field in Pennsylvania? Where was God when the wall of the Pentagon exploded in flames?

You want to know where He was? He was in my living room while I was watching those events unfold on TV. He was wherever you were that morning when you heard the news. He was in those towers, and on the streets below. He was in those planes and those offices. And His heart was breaking right along with ours.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil because You are with me.” Psalm 23:4

    Great post, Brother John. God created us with the gift of free will and, unfortunately, sometimes we suffer as the result of the free will forced upon us made by others (sin). God will not force His will on us, but, yes, he is Always with us, loving us, suffering with us. Beautiful post! ~Margaret Sinkule~
