Where is God?: notes to myself (part 3)

Where is God?:
notes to myself


Sometimes He seems to hide, but there's always an answer to every cry.

Psalm 10:1
1 Why do You stand afar off, O LORD? Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?

He hears us.
 
Psalm 10:17-18
17 O Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble;
You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear
18 To vindicate the orphan and the oppressed,
So that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror.

Lamentation 3:44
44 You have covered Yourself with a cloud So that no prayer can pass through.

Do not fear!
 
Lamentations 3:56-57
You have heard my voice,
Do not hide Your ear from my prayer for relief,
From my cry for help.”
57 You drew near when I called on You;
You said, “Do not fear!”

Isaiah 45:15
15 Truly, You are a God who hides Himself, O God of Israel, Savior!

Turn to Him...be saved.
 
Isaiah 45:22
22 Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth;
For I am God, and there is no other.



Acts 17:24-25
24 The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, 25 nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.

 
Seek Him.
 
Acts 17:26-27a
26 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, 27 that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him.

He is near.
 
Acts 17:27b-28
Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, 28 for
“‘In him we live and move and have our being’;
as even some of your own poets have said,
“‘For we are indeed his offspring.’"
