Where is God?

 

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Psalm 11

To the choirmaster. Of David. In the LORD I take refuge; how can you say to my soul, “Flee like a bird to your mountain,

for behold, the wicked bend the bow; they have fitted their arrow to the string to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;

if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD’s throne is in heaven; his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.

The LORD tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.

Let him rain coals on the wicked; fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.

For the LORD is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face.

 

If the foundations are destroyed …are we not as a nation in the process of destroying our foundations? There is a steady flow of denying God as our refuge and a turning to our own abilities and strengths. To be sure those abilities and strengths are from God for all things come from him. The danger to us is in the denial of who he is and what he does. As a nation we move from God as our basis for all things to mankind as the basis for all things; or nature as the basis for all things. How we view life and all it encompasses is crucial to the quality of life. Remove the foundations and the building collapses into rubble; something no longer of use, needing to be cleaned up. For many, the removal of God has caused their life to collapse into rubble and the joy of living is gone.

“…if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

Whatever mankind does, God remains. For those of us who guard our heart, keep the mind of Christ, continue to place our faith and trust in our Creator, life retains its joy regardless of the circumstances around us. He is our refuge; he walks and talks with us. Adonai is in His holy temple. Know not that you are his temple? He lives in us.

“…The LORD is in his holy temple…”

Where will we run to? To whom will we run?

“…In the LORD I take refuge; how can you say to my soul, “Flee like a bird to your mountain,…”

God is righteous; we possess that righteousness and we will see him.

For the LORD is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face.
