Do you remember when you first thought about God? I do not. He has always been there with me. That does not mean my life has always been peachy keen. It does not mean I have always been perfect….but, he has always been there…..calling me, desiring a relationship with me.
My children are at the stage in their lives where they are asking questions about God…..the hard/tough questions. The questions that adults have a difficult time understanding or answering, at least until they truly come to understanding God’s Sovereignty. Oh, it’s beautiful…and amazing. Have you found it? I hope so. So many do not. Which is why…the question that hit last week…was a tough one in many ways. Children are so open and innocent. They have not been fully tainted by the world’s sin…just their own sinful nature and that of those they have encountered.
This was the question:
“What happens to people who never hear about Jesus or read a Bible…or are ever visited by a missionary?”
How would you answer that question? Me, I did not answer it….I let God’s word answer it. As I opened my tattered Bible….I prayed that God would gently answer this. I knew where to look. I knew the verse. I knew the confusion I felt when I first read it. Then, as I pondered this and read his Word more…and saw the beauty of HIS creation and HIS plan…..the confusion dissippated…..
So, I prayed that God would truly intervene and show his grace…and his soveriegnty. Here it is. This is how God answers that question. This is the verse I am meditating on…and memorizing.
When my children ask those tough questions, I open HIS word…and I let my Heavenly Father answer the questions about this amazing life and world HE created!
20 “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. “
