Kings 20:28 And there came a man of God, and spake unto the king of Israel, and said, Thus saith the LORD, Because the Syrians have said, The LORD is God of the hills, but he is not God of the valleys, therefore will I deliver all this great multitude into thine hand, and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
Where Is God? This is a question we hear often when there is a tragedy in someone’s life. I’ve heard people ask this question when tornadoes have moved in and left nothing but devastation through an area. Some have asked where God has been when hurricanes have hit a shoreline and destroyed lives and homes. People will often ask a Pastor this question after the sudden unexplained death of a loved one. When someone takes weapons into a school or crowded area and randomly takes the lives of innocent people with no warning, we hear, where is God in all this? At times it’s hard to see God in the midst of natural disasters or the sinful outbursts of man. However in the aftermath, if you will look around, you will see this loving God picking up the pieces of broken lives and putting them back together again. There is a biblical name for God and Christ that will answer this question. IMMANUEL. Which means, “God with us.”
In today’s reading of 1 Kings 20 we find the Syrian army not understanding the presence of God. They thought that He was a territorial God like their false imagined gods. They had hoped that this God was only with man on the mountain, and not in the valley. How soon they found out that the one true God is not a god of mud, but a God of Man. The God of Man is not confined to one place, nor is He only there in certain situations. He is the God of Man always.
Just remember, the God of the mountain top experiences in life, is also the God who will walk with, and through the valley of your life. He’s the God you can count on when nature and man prove to be unreliable. He’s always there.
Can the world see God in you, even in the bad times?
Every step in life taken with the Lord, brings us closer to Him. Even mistakes in life will develop Godly Maturity if we learn from them, as seen in:
● Given Even More
● Guiding Their Memories
● God Still Matters
● Guaranteed A Meal
● Guarded And Mistaken
● God With Man
What a blessing to know that just as a parent leads a child, our Heavenly Father is leading us into Godly Maturity.
Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs

God is still teaching us,
if we will only learn from His lessons in life.

for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
