What has God been doing all this time? Is He still resting? Is He doing nothing?
Why might some ask this question? When some see the mess and disasters on earth, they might wonder why God doesn’t do something to straighten things out.
Why has He not yet acted to fix the problems that mankind is facing? What has God been up to in the last 2000 years?
For one thing, God has been exercising great patience, as he waits for the time allotted to the Devil to prove that we can do a better job of ruling and managing the earth withoutGod to run out. (Revelation 12:12)
He has built an international organization of people that love Him. He has blessed this hated organization to show his power and to have his name declared in all the earth. The world hates God’s organization and would want to destroy it, if it could. The fact that the Devil, the demons and wicked humans have not been able to do so proves that God is busy at work.
God is also hoping that more and more humans come to realization that we need his direction and guidance in order to enjoy peace and security and that without him all of man’s plans are doomed to failure. He helps everyone that shows a desire
While man is capable of much, he is not capable of ruling the earth in a way that would bring unity to mankind. To bring unity to mankind and peace and security to the earth takes unselfish love, supreme wisdom, incredible power and impartial justice. These are qualities that man does not have and never will have.
God sustains the universe by his incredible energy and power. Look up to the sky and see that the sun is still shining. It has been shining for billions of years. With God’s renewing power, it will keep on shining for eternity.
So, if one thinks that God is dead, oblivious to what is happening on earth or has simply forgotten about us, that is the furthest thing from the truth. God is aware of every little thing that is taking place. What is yet to be is beyond wonder to describe!
So what has God been doing? What is God doing these days? As always, He is busy at work, making sure that all works out well for all those that love him!
