“Where is God in all of this?” This question is often asked in the face of devastating trials, intense persecution, and horrible calamities. Even as believers we can sometimes be tempted to believe that God is distant, unconcerned, or even helpless when disaster strikes. In Acts 12 we see the early church facing such difficulties when James is beheaded and Peter is imprisoned by Herod. With Peter’s divine deliverance, we might further ask “Why rescue Peter and not James?” In this sermon, however, Pastor Matt looks at this particular portion of Scripture to demonstrate the profound truth that God is in fact on his throne, that his kingdom is forever, that his truth abides forever, that this Word can not be restrained, and his Church will not be overcome.
