Will the Lord cast us off forever? And will He be favorable no more? Has His mercy ceased forever? Has His promise failed forevermore? Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has He in anger shut up His tender mercies? Selah Psalm 77 NKVJ
The psalmist is asking tough questions.
People ask tough questions all the time. Some seek answers. Some do it to attack a God they claim does not exist. The Word of God provides answers to our questions. We should be familiar with them.
If God is good, why is there so much evil in the world? God is not the source of evil. Satan is the source of evil in the world. Jesus does not commit acts of evil. People do. If we obeyed God there would be no evil in our world!
Why is there so much suffering in the world? The first man and woman disobeyed God. They listened to the devil. Blessing and prosperity were replaced by sin and death. Intimacy with God was severed irreparably.
God gave mankind dominion over the earth. Adam and Eve gave it to Satan.
Why does God want to control us? God does not want to control us. He wants the best for us. He created us. He knows how to protect us. He knows how to bless us.
The Psalmist wondered if God had gone away and left him alone. Have you ever wondered if God has gone away and left you alone? Have you ever wondered if God has turned His back on you?
I know God will never leave me or forsake me. There are times when my feelings and emotions contradict what I know is true. Do your feelings and emotions ever contradict what you know is true?
The waters saw You, O God; The waters saw You, They were afraid; The depths also trembled. Vs 16
God has not ceded authority over creation. He will end bring an end to the evil and suffering in the world. People who choose relationship with Jesus today will be blessed throughout eternity. Will you choose to live in relationship with Jesus today?
You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron. Vs 20
Sin and death have entered the world. The devil has been given a measure of authority over the earth. God has not abandoned us. The Lord is with us today. Jesus is leading, guiding, protecting and blessing people who love and follow Him today!
Discovery the answers to the difficult questions that plague your soul. Share them with people who need to Jesus is the way the truth and the life we all seek!
