What in the world is going on? Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Maria, earthquakes in Mexico, and now mass murder in Las Vegas. In the space of a few hours Houston, and the beautiful island of Puerto Rico are devastated. And in less than 15 minutes 59 people are killed and many more injured. There is no absolute safety or security in this world, even in the most powerful country in the world.
And where is God when disaster hits? There are no easy answers, but we do know that “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are saved” (Proverbs 18:10). We also know that the cross of Jesus Christ declares that God loves us and is with us, and that no trial, suffering, or tragedy can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:35-36). Put your trust in the eternal God and our Savior Jesus Christ.
