The God of History

                                               Today's Creation Moment: The God of History

Psalm 90:4  "For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night."


The calendar year has not always started on January 1. There was a time in Christian history when the calendar began on March 25. Nevertheless, when we come to the end of one year and begin the next, most people have a time of celebration and reflection.
A calendar from the PetalumaAt a personal level, some will decide that the year just ending was better than most; for others, it was a year they would rather forget. Then at a global level, when we see and hear of unending wars and famines and new diseases spreading worldwide, some will ask, "If there is a God, where is He?" Others will turn the situation around and ask, "What kind of God permits all this to happen?"
The real problem here is that the God of this kind of thinking is far too small. This is the little man-made God who set the universe going millions of years ago and then retired to let it all evolve. No, according to Scripture, the real God is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe and everything on this Earth. He is totally in charge of every detail of history. No war or pestilence happens without His permission. But He is also the God Who loves every one of us, and these are often the methods He uses to urge His people to draw closer to Him.
