Where Is Your God Now?

This morning we were reading in Micah 7. Verse 10 says, “Where is the Lord thy God?” It reminded me of an incident. A Christian man was dying of cancer. His believing wife, understandably, was sorrowing for him. An unbeliever said to her, “Where is your God now?”
In such circumstances, how good to be able to say, “He is right beside me. He is always beside me and will never leave me nor forsake me.” (See Hebrews 13:55Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5).)
How comforting it is to know this—to be assured of it! Many times a dear believer in deep trial has said, “What would I do without Him?”
How good to know that “the Lord is at hand” (Phil. 4:55Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. (Philippians 4:5)). He was there at Paul’s side in prison, and we hear the beloved Apostle saying, “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say rejoice” (Phil. 4:44Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. (Philippians 4:4)).
His love in times past forbids us to think
He’ll leave us at last in trouble to sink.
