How is God Present in Such a Cruel World?


The world is a harsh place full of hatred, hardships, greed, envy, and every other negative word in the dictionary. Sometimes it can feel like God isn’t here with us. A new shooting on the news every day, stories of discrimination, countries struggling with limits to their lives due to greedy leaders, seeing the homeless, natural disasters destroying lives, and basically… just go on Twitter and you will see what I am talking about or you may have witnesses of these through your own life. Do you know the most amazing thing that comes out of these terrible occurrences of the world? God overcomes them all. He can heal every negative that is brought to the world. His name is so powerful. He heals everything.


Isaiah 25:4-5
For You have been a defense for the helpless, A defense for the needy in his distress, A refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat; For the breath of the ruthless Is like a rain storm against a wall. Like heat in drought, You subdue the uproar of aliens; Like heat by the shadow of a cloud, the song of the ruthless is silenced.

We are all servants of God and should spread his amazing glory to those going through hardship. Shine your light to others, spread God’s light to others, and just LOVE those who need it a little extra, and of course to others just because!

Matthew 5:16
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that[a] they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

God’s armies are always on the front line ready to protect you from these things. When you go through the negative depths of the world… turn to your protector GOD as your SHIELD.
“Our savior is a Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
How wonderful HE is. How powerful HE is. How healing HE is.
