Where Is God?
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust, and will not be afraid,
for the Lord God is my strength and my might;
God has become my salvation.
The Good News of Jesus is that God entered the pit. God walks the valley. God is knowable. Emmanuel, God with us, is everywhere, waiting to be discovered. We can see God and hear God and taste God and touch God and smell God. The prophet Isaiah says that God is my Salvation. God is my strength. God is my song.
When you are saved from circumstances, from troubles, from oppression, or even saved from yourself. Look around. You are seeing God. When you feel a ripple of energy and the strength to survive one more day, You are feeling God. When you sing a song in the shower and you reach for those high notes because you are alone and safe at last, you are hearing the voice of God.
A New Testament writer gave us another clue in our quest to see God. The writer said “God is love.”
When you experience love, this radical opposition to a world of fear and hate, when you experience love, you are experiencing God.
Where are you seeing, tasting, touching, feeling God today?
If God is your song, what are some of the lyrics?
