How many of us have heard that question, "Where was your GOD when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked?" Well, I know where my GOD was the morning of September 11, 2001, and He was very busy!
He was trying to discourage anyone from taking those flights. The four flights together should have had over 1000 passengers, and there were only 266 aboard.
He was on four commercial flights giving terrified passengers the peace to stay calm. Not one of the family members who was called by a loved one on one of the hijacked planes said that passengers were screaming in the background.
On one of the flights He was giving strength to passengers to try to overtake the hijackers.
He was busy trying to create obstacles for employees at the World Trade Center. After all, only around 20,000 were at the towers when the first jet hit. Since the buildings normally held over 50,000 workers, this was a Miracle in itself. How many of the people who were employed at the World Trade Center told the media that they were late for work or they had traffic delays?
He was holding up two 110 story buildings so that 2/3 of the workers could get out. I was so amazed that the top of the towers didn't topple when the jets impacted. And when they did fall, they fell inward. GOD didn't allow them to topple over, as many more lives would have been lost.
And when the buildings went down, my GOD picked up many of the 6,000 of His children and carried them home with Him; reassuring His frightened children that the worst was over and the best was yet to come.
He sat down and cried that 19 of His created beings could have so much hate in their hearts. That they didn't choose Him, but another god that doesn't exist, and now they are lost forever.
He sent His children that are best trained for this disaster and had them save the few that were still alive, but unable to help themselves. And then sent many others to help in anyway they were needed.
He still isn't finished, though. He holds the loved ones who were left behind in His arms. He comforts them daily.
His other children are given the strength to reach out to them and help them in any way they can. And I believe He will continue to help us in what is to come.
He will give the people in charge of this great nation the strength and the wisdom to do the right thing. He would never leave us in our time of need.
He has given his children the charge to tell the world about Jesus. Never in the recent past history of the world, are people more willing to listen to the Good News about Jesus.
Won't you take time today to tell your friend about Jesus. I am sure that many will listen to you today, that would not have listened to you on September 10th.
So when anyone asks, "Where was your GOD on September 11," you can say "Everywhere!" And yes, although this is without a doubt the worst thing I have seen in my life, I see God's miracles in every bit of it. I keep praying for those who don't believe in GOD, every chance I have. I can't imagine going through such a difficult time and not believing in GOD.
Life would be hopeless!
**Personal Note: This was forwarded to me by an unknown author. I have added some of my own thoughts to the last part. On September 11th, I was in the hospital after suffering a slight stroke the day before on September 10th. I am sure we all will remember where we were on that fateful day. Thank God that many of my friends prayed for me when they heard of my illness, and God seems to have completely healed me. I must heed my own words, and tell my unsaved friends about my Jesus.
