Why does God allow over 15,000 to die from earthquakes like this one? And how do I live my life without fear that we will be next?
Most of us have heard or read this expression on a t-shirt "Faith over Fear." Or perhaps we have overheard someone say "Fear and Faith cannot coexist." Personally, I believe that to be a true statement. If you truly believe, trust, and love God with ALL of your heart, mind, body, and soul there is no need for fear. However, if you don't know GOD, then you may think or even say things like: "God has never revealed himself to me" or "But I don't want to give up this one [sinful] pleasure" or "What if I'm not perfect?" or "I don't want to be like one of those Christian hypocrites" or "Eventually science will catch up and prove that all religion is mythology" or maybe it's simply that "God is not tangible or visible to me, therefore he cannot exist." Or "I'll have to evangelize people if I am a beleiver, and I don't like pushing ANYTHING on other people" Or "If there is a God, He wouldn't have allowed THIS [loss/tragedy/heartbreak] to happen." Or fill in the blank _______________________________ with any number of other reasons people give for choosing fear/doubts/self-sufficency/anger/bitterness/logic/skeptisicm/self-righteousness/ego/etc. over FAITH in GOD.
You are sovereign God and You are a good good Father. As for me and my house, we will choose to serve and worship you all the days of our lives.
Joshua 24:15 and Psalm 23
We will praise You in this storm. We will praise You during these horrific birth pains of labor as You give rise to a new Heaven and a new Earth.
1 Thessalonians 5:3
Holy is Your Name and worth of all my praise and thanksgiving Yahweh.
“Thank You Jesus” in the most reverent and sincere tone with all my heart now and forever more.
