Arise, O Lord
Patrick Crusius walked into a Wal-Mart in El Paso, Texas and killed 22 people. The very next day, Connor Betts walked into a pub in Dayton, Ohio, killing nine people who, no doubt, were there to meet and celebrate with friends. The shear meaningless nature of such killings overwhelms us with sorrow and confusion. If you're honest you might be saying, "Why, O Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?" That's a question the Bible itself raises as you survey such horrendous events. What does God say to us when these things happen. Listen to God's Word as he speaks to us in Psalm 10.
