Where is God?

This is often the question of skeptics, scoffers, and even troubled souls. Trials and tribulations of one sort or another crowd our personal lives, while corruption, conflict, and catastrophe command the world scene. Indeed, where is God in all of this?

Asking the question is fair enough; answering demands caution.God’s Unfailing Purpose: The Message of Daniel is a cautious and biblical answer to that question. This book focuses on the heavenly throne from which God rules according to his perfect will and unchangeable, unfailing purpose. God is in absolute control of all things: the big issues of the world, as well as the seemingly bigger issues of our lives. Daniel’s view of history and prophecy shows that God’s kingdom is coming and that God’s will is being done on earth as certainly as it is in heaven. Daniel’s message is simply, “Not to worry—everything is under control.”
