Where Is God?

May 30, 2021

There is not a greater teacher in life than trouble. Quite honestly, you learn a lot more about yourself and about life in the hard times than you ever will in the good times. Not to mention we can always count on when hard times hit, people of faith and no faith, religion and no religion, church and no church, come out of the woodwork and they ask the big question, “Where is God?” There is a man in the Bible who was probably outside of Jesus, the best known, and his name was Paul. If anybody had a right to be asking that question it was him. He blazed a trail for the Christian faith that no one else has come close to doing. He became the greatest missionary, the greatest apologist, the greatest church planter, the greatest evangelist and the greatest theologian that the world has ever known. What did he get for all of this? The words we are going to study today are in a letter he wrote to a young pastor named Timothy. He wrote sitting in a Roman dungeon, from which he would never escape, facing imminent death, and yet he answers this question: Where is God?

Bible Reference

At my first defense no one came to stand by me, but all deserted me. May it not be charged against them!
But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion’s mouth.
The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
