I read a very powerful and honest question, asked by former slaves in the scriptures, “Is the LORD among us or not?” (Exodus 17:7). This people group had seen plagues, walked through the Red Sea, had their enemies wiped out and have been fed food that fell from heaven. They found themselves in a place without water and they question God’s presence. Who of us have been in a place without and wondered the same thing? I find it is so easy to do, like it is almost natural. What happens when we expand our scope to what is happening in our world? Do you sense the question rising again? The answer I come up with is another question, where else would He be? He promised to never leave us and so we trust that God is with us. Sometimes we just need the reminder.
