Sadly, much of humanity has a beef with God.

They can't find Him.

It seems He didn't show up in time to spare them from significant stresses.  For certain these had received information and invitations throughout their lives about God.  Yet, convenience found a way to ignore His calls.

But now there are troubles galore and surely, they insist, God is to blame for He didn't show up when they could have used a Hand.

Where is God, anyway?

God is highly aware and intensely alert to both our major and our minuscule needs.  He goes not ignorant to note our deep need for aid.  He saw it coming and, you might be happy to know, did something about it.

God first sent His prophets.  Then His Son, Jesus.  Next, He sent His Spirit.  Not so oddly, mankind has basically snubbed its nose at these gigantic and incomprehensible exercises of God intended to help His valued creation.

This reminds me a bit of the person perched upon his roof during treacherous floods.  "Where is the help when you need it?", remarked the stranded.  A voice responds, "I sent you two boats and a helicopter.  What more do you need?"

The answer to "Where is God, anyway?" is that He sent us His prophets, His Son nailed upon the Cross, and then His Spirit.  It might be a good time to ponder those whom He has sent rather than speak in oblivious frustration as if He doesn't care.

"Come unto me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest", pleads God through Jesus.  At your elbow, that's where God is today.
