Who’s with me?

May 6, 2017 — 2 Comments

As a teenager one evening, my friends and I tackled some difficult questions. If God is real, why are people dying of starvation? Why so many tragedies and so much pain and suffering? Very difficult questions to which we did not have the answers. As we parted company that night I went off by myself and I said a simple prayer. I said, “God, if You are real, then I’m asking You to reveal yourself and the truth of all of this to me.”

Not too long ago, I was sharing that teenage experience with a friend, and in the middle of that conversation I was reminded of an excerpt from a book, and all of a sudden it hit me, at that moment, God was still answering my prayer 35 years later. You need to hear the excerpt to fully understand. So here it is.

Sometimes I would like to ask God why He allows poverty, suffering and injustice when He could do something about it. Well, why don’t you ask Him? Because I’m afraid that He would ask me the same question. – The Hole in our Gospel – Richard Stearns

Here is the cool thing, “None of us are here by accident”. I believe God is bringing us together; He’s equipping and expecting us to be the message of hope, to achieve success and to make a huge impact. To be the change that transforms the world.

  1. Hi Robin, this is one of your posts I love most. It reminds me that KINGDOM TIME and earth time are different . Recently I turned 83 years of age. When I was 70 years old I talked to GOD. It went something like this ” JESUS, when the disciples asked YOU how to pray YOU said ‘ THY WILL be done on earth as it is in heaven’.
    I don’t see anyone walking on earth as it is in heaven. For the rest of my life would you give me the gift of teaching me how I can walk on earth as it is in heaven. For 13 years HE has been teaching me the answer to that prayer. He is cleaning me out from inside out. One big example of that was that I was controlling and manipulating my spouse and children by giving them books, advice and conferences to help them grow, and I called it love. HE said only if they ask me am I to give advice. Rather I am to ask HIM to bless them in every way . I did not feel condemned that I had done it wrong, but that HE was answering my prayer prayed 13 years ago. We serve a faithful GOD.

    • Amen. And right on Pat! That’s a beautiful prayer and I can see by your life that he is answering.
