This is the May letter from our Vicar - Rev Andy Reid

Where is God in the midst of this crisis?  Why doesn’t He save us from this terrible virus? Doesn’t He care?

“Why does God allow suffering?” is one of the most commonly asked questions about God. It seems a fitting question to ask when we are told that “God is love”!  What kind of loving God allows this kind of suffering to happen? Surely such a God would do something if he existed?

The writer of Psalm 13 knew this same kind of pain and angst.  He writes, “How long, Lord? Will you forget me for ever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?”

Those words might resonate with us – but the Psalmist is not overcome with doubt and despair, he doesn’t lose hope.  The Psalmist has learned the importance of remembering what the true character of God is like. The Psalmist puts his hope in what he knows about God. So, he cries out to God saying… “3Look on me and answer, Lord my God.” He expects God to answer!

God IS Love! Love is the very essence of His being.  If we know that, then  we  also know that God did not create Covid-19, nor does he enjoy seeing what it is doing to His creation.  Covid-19 is a result of our poor care and management of the world.  God entrusted the world to us, to care for it. We have messed it up!  Thankfully, when we mess things up, He doesn’t abandon us… He waits for us to turn back to Him and to call on Him, putting our faith and trust in him again.  The Psalmist ends Psalm 13 with these words…

“5 But  I  trust  in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.”

The  Psalmist’s  trust  remains  in  what  they  know  about  the  true character of God. God will save us! If only we put our faith and trust in Him once more. So, let’s do as the Psalmist does and “Sing the Lord’s praise”, remembering all the good He has done for us. Call on Him and He will answer.

God bless you,

Rev Andy K Reid
