A wicked man enters the parking lot, while everyone is quiet and praying,
They are talking to God and don’t know a murderer is near; They don’t know he’s coming.
Were they able to pray that the horror would stop, that God would end the evil man’s slaying?
I mean………babies and children were murdered………in a church! This is all too mind-numbing.
Do the families wonder and pray this way?
Dear Lord, why did You allow this evil to happen? Why allow so much devastation and pain?
Broken lives and shattered families with no answers; we just wanted to worship You, and sing Your praise.
You had the power, and we know You are good; but an evil man entered our church and went insane,
You did allow it, and we don’t know why; we cannot comprehend; we do not understand all of Your ways.
Christians, let this be our prayer……………
Please help Texas and all of us to pray, even when we are confused and don’t fully understand,
Because we know that You are holy and good; You are perfectly wise in all of your decrees,
Your ways exceed our comprehension; we cannot fathom the things allowed by Your hand,
That goes for a church massacre and a sparrow falling to earth; even the gentle autumn breeze.
So, it is ok to wonder, Sutherland Springs……….
It is ok to wonder where your protection was. It is really ok, God understands. You can ask why. You can weep and you can cry. God understands.
He is a faithful High Priest. He suffered. He was tempted. He wept. Yes, Jesus wept. He understands………completely.
Jesus died on a Roman cross. This was brought forth by God’s hand.
The gospel, yes the glorious gospel, is where we must stand.
I know, you still wonder…………..
God, where were You? Why didn’t You stop this evil?
If He had the power, why didn’t He use it?
I do not know the answer, but I do know this……….
And I do not have to wonder……….
That in the midst of all your pain and sorrow,
And in the midst of having to face all of your worst fears,
Jesus cares for you and will never leave you. And one day He will wipe away all of your tears.
May God comfort and strengthen all of you at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs. Our hearts go out to you all. We will be praying. God bless you.
