Where Is God?

Rise up, LORD God! Lift up Your hand.
Do not forget the afflicted.
Psalm 10:12

This video has been appearing on many blogs and FB profiles and seeks to answer the question 'Where is God?'. Tough question. Recently I re-read the book, 'Why do bad things happen to good people?', but the question we often do not ask is, 'Why do good things happen to bad people?'. Something in us needs to know that people get what they deserve, but that is not how the gospel works. God gives us in Jesus what we did not earn or certainly deserve! Let's pray for the people of Haiti, that God will have compassion on them and that many will turn to the amazing mercy and love that He is longing to pour out on them. Donate to Haiti now.

A wonderful post indeed. I think the question "Where is God in the Haitian earthquake?" is logical from the human point of view, but can't have an answer because starts off on the wrong foot.

Good thoughts Mike. Getting what we deserve is a very OT idea.. it is what troubled Job and his buddies. Not getting what we deserve is a very NT idea and describes grace a bit.
