Job 38:2, "Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?" When I hurl accusing questions at GOD, I am questioning the very being of HIM and HIS credibility. When I ask why; I am immediately making the statement that I have a better solution or know a better way. It is all with the "intent" I ask. Knowledge, assumes I have an understanding through experience of education; while Wisdom, implies that I have a deep understanding of Truth with the ability to judge what is True. When I ask the question WHY? I really mean WHO? When I ask, why do innocence children suffer when they have done nothing wrong; I am really asking WHO are YOU GOD? How could YOU let this happen GOD? Evil is so prevalent in our society (of course my sins excusable right?) that I ask why aren't you punishing them GOD? Again, I am asking WHO are YOU to let this go on? I want GOD to strike down my enemies but I don't want HIM to punish me for my "little slip ups". I want mercy when my back is against the wall, but I don't (and don't want to) understand how GOD can give mercy to others. In short; I cannot comprehend the nature of the GOD I am dealing with here. The only way I am going to be transformed into knowing the nature and character of GOD is to ask WHO LORD? LORD, I really WANT YOU TO BE GOD, no matter what! I just want to Trust, Depend, Sit in Awe and Amazement, and Love YOU like YOU love me. And LORD, all those other people? Treat them the same as YOU do me; with mercy, love, forgiveness and salvation. I'M THANKFUL YOUR GOD!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
