Long ago, the Psalmists repeatedly cried out to God with the same question.
“O LORD, why do You stand so far away? Why do You hide when I am in trouble?” (Psalm 10:1)
"How long wilt Thou forget me, O LORD? Forever? how long wilt Thou hide Thy face from me? (Psalm 13:1-6)
"How long, O LORD? Will You be angry forever? Will Your jealousy burn like fire?” (Psalm 79:5)
The reading of the book of Psalms is a good place to begin the search for the answer to the question asked by the Psalmists. The Psalmists were determined to sort out their pain before God. Whenever trouble surfaced, pain or suffering appeared, mankind asked God the same question.
Since day one, we humans have continually sinned and rebelled against God. When our choices turned out disastrous, we repeatedly pled with God to condone and overlook the rebellion. As long as the rebellion continued the pleas and questions carried on and sacrifices were repeatedly offered as an attempt to pacify God. But the question remained. "O LORD, why do You stand so far away?"
