Where is God? A Guest Post by Bill Davis

There is the story of the small child that had just finished Bible School. A rough old neighbor saw the small lad skipping happily home. He stopped him and asked where he had been going the last few days. "I been to Bible School", he enthusiastically answered. Bible School? The neighbor answered. What in the world did you learn at Bible School he said sarcastically. "I learned about God", was the quick reply. I will give you a dime if you can tell me where God is; came the neighbor's challenge.-----Silence-----I will give you a quarter if you can tell me where God is, was the new challenge.

The boy looked him square in the eyes, and quick as a flash his answer came! And his accents were not even faint, "I'll give you a dollar Mister, If you can tell me; where God ain't."

Have you ever asked, Where is God? Or have you wondered where God was? When this question is asked by a Christian or even someone who merely believes in God; they probably aren't asking where He is physically but where He is spiritually. He is probably missing in their life. If you believe the Bible is the word of God, then that would be a good place to start. 2 Timothy 3:16; "All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness." If you feel God is in your heart, your own thoughts and actions would be a good place to start. James 4:8; "Come near to God and He will come near to you." If you want to know where He is in the world, just look around. Look at His work in nature. Psalm 19:1; "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands." Look at His work in the life of your Pastor or lay person, the friend that stands by you no matter. The one that you know will always be there for you even if they don't really have too. Gee, seems like God is pretty much everywhere. Look in the mirror, maybe just maybe there is a resemblance there to your Heavenly Father.

Where Is God? The Question Should Be, "Where God Ain't."
