Where is God when things go crazy?

Where is God when things are going crazy?

Where is God when the world is topsy-turvy?

Does God have anything to say about the things that are taking place in the earth?

Psalm 75

1 We thank you, God, we thank you— your Name is our favorite word;
your mighty works are all we talk about.

2-4 You say, “I’m calling this meeting to order,
I’m ready to set things right.
When the earth goes topsy-turvy
And nobody knows which end is up,
I nail it all down,
I put everything in place again.
I say to the smart alecks, ‘That’s enough,’
to the bullies, ‘Not so fast.'”

5-6 Don’t raise your fist against High God.
Don’t raise your voice against Rock of Ages.
He’s the One from east to west;
from desert to mountains, he’s the One.

7-8 God rules: he brings this one down to his knees,
pulls that one up on her feet.
God has a cup in his hand,
a bowl of wine, full to the brim.
He draws from it and pours;
it’s drained to the dregs.
Earth’s wicked ones drink it all,
drink it down to the last bitter drop!

9-10 And I’m telling the story of God Eternal,
singing the praises of Jacob’s God.
The fists of the wicked
are bloody stumps,
The arms of the righteous
are lofty green branches.

So where is God when things age going heywire? He is there ready to do battle on behalf of His people; on behalf of the innocent; on behalf of those that wait on Him and call on His name.

We see so many things taking place in the world and even more so, we deal with things in our own lives, that we wonder what God has to say or what He’s going to do about it.

“I’m calling this meeting to order,
I’m ready to set things right.
When the earth goes topsy-turvy
And nobody knows which end is up,
I nail it all down,
I put everything in place again.
I say to the smart alecks, ‘That’s enough,’
to the bullies, ‘Not so fast.'”

So what do we need to do? We need to tell Him how we feel. We need to trust that He is our loving Heavenly Father and the Eternal God, He will take care of us.

So when life doesn’t seem fair and you’re doing all that you can to stay above water, remember what Psalm 75 says. Remember who our God is.

Remember the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” ~Romans 10::11
