Unfortunately for this nation this question is not being asked. Like Israel in Jeremiah chapter 2 we have whored ourselves out to every seduction available. Imagine how few generations are included in our short 200 years history. So quickly the children have lost the revelation that this nation appeared on the scene as a divine appointment and revelation very much like the Israelites exodus from Egypt
Where is God? Is He someone we call on when an enemy kills 3000 in a tower’s destruction? For days, weeks, or months He becomes our chant or bumper sticker. Forgotten again soon enough, the world hates God and always will. They hate the fact that tragedy can make them aware of their feebleness and that they have a reflex to call to God out of their fears. As soon as they calm themselves that reflex will be dismissed as an emotional vain imagination.
But we are not like the world, for we know the answer to this question and ask it for very different reasons. We desire to know the answer for affections sake. Our question resembles more “Where is my darling?” I long for their presence; we are comforted by the answer found in Eph. 2 13-22. He is near! Regrettable this nation has been lost to her lust. Like the wild ass in heat sniffing the air trying to find the first available mate. America is known now as the cheap whore without virtue. Within her borders though is a remnant, a small few, who are near to God, who are being built up for a kingdom not of this world? Fortunately for this nation’s sake God has prophesied her restoration to sense. She will be led back to God by the few who are near to God. Not through tragedy but by our love example. So when you here the question “where is God?” Boldly proclaim your answer that His love has taught you “He is Near!”
