Where is God in the Fire? October 14/15, 2017
John 16:33; John 1:5
What a terrible week of tragedy and loss for the people of Sonoma and Napa Counties! 2,000+ buildings burned down & destroyed. 20,000+ displaced people. 23 deaths…and still there are missing people unaccounted for…
Many people are looking up and saying, “Why God? Why do these bad things happen? And, where are You in all this?”
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way…Be still, and know that I am God” Psalm 46:1-2, 10
“In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4-5 (NIV)
Our desire to control everything—to be in control—can make us people of fear. SERENITY PRAYER… God is in control; He wants us to depend on Him!
Jesus promises us; 33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV)
