Where is God?

Where is God at tragic times like the Sunday, November 5th Church shooting in Texas?
God was there telling that evil person not to do what he did.
God was there taking His beloved children home to suffer no more.
God is here comforting and giving hope to the rest of us.
Is God not powerful enough to stop it?
He is powerful enough, and though sometimes He does, it is not yet time to put an end to all evil. For this reason evil tragedies still happen. We live in a special time in which we can either store up wrath or reward for the time to come.
- 1 Timothy 6:19
Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
When that time does come, evil will end, and God's children will be rewarded far beyond any suffering we've had.
- Romans 8:18
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
When will that time come?
In the end when every knee shall bow to God and every tongue shall confess. There will be no choice but to do so in this time.
- Romans 14:11-12
11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
