Uvalde Texas, Where Was God on Tuesday?
Where was God on Tuesday, May 24th, 2022, when 18-year-old Salvador Ramos opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, United States, killing nineteen students and two teachers, and wounding seventeen people? Nineteen innocent little children were slaughtered like animals and countless others will never be the same after what they witnessed in that schoolhouse! Where was God when evil was seemingly allowed to run free on a wild rampage? I’ll tell you where He was. He was present. No, He was VERY present. He was in the school and in the classrooms.
But Didn’t We Kick God Out of our Schools?
Yes, I know, we kicked God out of the school system and we forbade the posting of the Ten Commandments, [the Supreme Courts wording: “If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the School children to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey the Commandments.” Let me translate. You cannot display the commandment ‘thou shalt not kill’ because somebody might obey it!] I understand the argument that we booted God out, but we actually don’t have the authority to tell the omnipresent One where He can and can’t be!
Make no mistake about it, God was there! And He gathered those kids up in His sheltering arms, like a hen gathers chicks under her wing. I know this because Jesus said to bring the little children unto Him, for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And He who wept at the grave of Lazarus has a heart for all His children!
The Bible says there’s one thing that gets God’s fullest attention more than anything else, and that is innocent blood which cries out to Him. So then answer this question: “Where is God when tragedies like this oner happen?” He is very present! He is all over that kind of situation, giving a dying grace which you and I have not experienced only because we’ve not yet needed it. “Shall not the Judge of the earth do right?” God is love, and in His character we know He is there where He is needed most.
And these kids which looked forward to growing up and having full lives awoke together, not in a better place, but the BEST place, and what a class party it was and continues to be…and we, the saved, will one day join in the festivities which will last for all eternity!
God was not surprised on Tuesday May 24th 2022,
But He was saddened by it.
God did not cause this tragedy,
But He does comfort those affected by it.
God may not prevent future acts like this,
But He will provide peace to those whose hearts are filled with hatred if they will turn to Him.
We Must Pray…
Let us pray that America responds to this wake up call, that it will be used mightily for God’s purposes of good, that we will return to Him, and that multitudes will come to Jesus like a little child in faith, and hop up into His lap, and let Him fill their hearts. Let us pray against the way Satan wants to use this.
How Can We Fix This?
Judgment must begin in the house of God. The God who said, “If my people” reminds us today that it begins in our homes and our church. The fix isn’t found in politicizing this horrible event. It’s not found in simply posting guards in our schools or throwing more money at educating minds more. Wicked sin is in the heart, and hearts must be changed. No metal detector can change the evil human heart.
We lock off the children’s wing and we have people packing heat in our services, which is only prudent, but God has not given us the spirit of fear…our hope and shelter is found in Him, and He is the only hope for America, but this isn’t just about the school house…this movement must begin in your house and in God’s house!
I’m thankful that this world is not my home, I’m just an ambassador in exile. Now, how should I represent my King who has placed me here in these last days?
The massacre in that elementary school in Uvalde Texas just a few miles from where I live was a horrific thing! Every parent in America right now feels for the parents that lost their children. Every mother and every father in the USA is saddened by thought that this could have been our children and we are all wondering where the next nightmare will be and if our children will be OK! Our hearts go out to the community in Uvalde Texas and I urge everyone to stop for just a moment and to pray for them and if you can, find a way to help them. This is how we can represent our Lord who has placed us her for such a time as this!
