A year and a half ago, I posted a blog about God raising people from the dead. It was one of those blogs that got an inordinate amount of traffic. It’s still getting comments on it. Last night Manuel posted this comment:

“Raising of dead people will be in the future when Jesus will rule all the world. (John 5:28 and 29) meanwhile all supposed miracles are faked.”

This is one of the most important questions God has given us to answer for ourselves, because if it’s true, then in the meantime, we’re basically alone down here, feeling like my son did yesterday after Marvin died in the Philippines. He’s wondering how far to trust God.

Where do we go with our disappointment? Eventually for people like my son, the disappointment overwhelms us and we conclude with Manuel that indeed, we serve a God who has chosen to withhold his power from us.

Today, a blog reader who had written about her disappointment is going up against her abusive ex-husband in court. It’s a terrifying place to be if you serve an impotent God. How do you have a personal relationship with a God who promises you miracles and then withholds them?
