Before, in the midst and even after the tragedy, GOD is still on His throne.

I have been reading and following the news on what happened in Aurora, Colorado at the Century 16 movie theater. There is one discussion that makes the headline “Where was God in Aurora” on the CNN page (Where was God in Aurora). I ask myself sometime the same thing and wonder where God was in 1994 in Rwanda, now in Syria, and many many other places.

The answer is simple in its own way: God was there and did not change. One thing though, God does not cause tragedy, the devil does. However, to my point of view, God lets things happen for a reason. In the Psalms 135:6 it reads: “Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps.” And we cannot ask Him what He is doing. However, God gave us a free will to choose between the good and bad. What we reap is what we will sow but I believe that everything happens for a reason and it’s always for us to learn and become better human beings. God never changes! We do!

  1. I think it’s ironic that people who had no interest in “where is God?” the day before the shooting, suddenly want to know why God didn’t intervene to stop the tragedy.

    • I agree, we many times remember the greatness and powerfulness of God when we are in danger, challenged, troubled or stuck. Unfortunately the human nature is that selfish but those who seek God diligently won’t grow weary, and they will see God just by their side through the fire. He’s so amazing and available to all those who wait for Him.
