“As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God? Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Psalm 42:10-11
Don’t be discouraged even when people taunt you or scoffs, “Where is that God of yours?” Don’t be upset, even when their taunts becomes even louder, take courage because it’s a sign help is near. Do not be dismayed, rather expect God to act! Psalm 42:5 says “…Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.” He will look at those tears of yours and “will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life” (Psalm 42:8).
Where is thy God, anyway?
“Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God? But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.” Psalm 115:2-4
Do you now know where your God is? Anyone who asks you that question should know that your God is in the heavens: he does what pleases him. You soul should not be disquieted, but should instead continue to hope in him.
He’s not the kind you can point at the same way they do with their idols. God is invisible, yet invincible, and His ways are past finding out.
Remember also my other post The Seven Spirits of God where I said, amidst the Church, in your heart stands He that is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent – the lamb that was slain, he has seven horns and seven eyes, “which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth” to redeem you back to God.
