We live in a ruthless, sinful world where we see hunger and poverty, while the rich seem to get richer and go unpunished for their evil actions. Then we go through circumstances we could have never imagined; the pain is so deep that we want to die and afraid we won't. WHY GOD, WHY; WHERE ARE YOU GOD? When we ask why, we express our doubt in the Willingness of GOD, the Character of GOD and our lack of Trust in GOD. WDJD? What Did JESUS Do? John 12:27-28, "...And what shall I say? FATHER, save me from this hour? But for this purpose I have come to 'this hour'. FATHER, Glorify YOUR name..." Maybe our questions should be HOW or WHAT? FATHER, WHAT can I learn from this to Glorify YOU, and grow in faith in this seemingly 'endless' hell? FATHER, HOW can I be more obedient and Trust YOUR promises for me? Why do we ask WHY when things are out of our control? It is because GOD IS GOD and we are not! JESUS told HIS disciples "not to be surprised at the trials and tribulations they would go through". 1 Thessalonians 5:16, "... in everything rejoice always..." Yes, the Bible has all of the answers but we ask the wrong questions. Perhaps as we read the Bible more, we learn THE WHO, IS THE WHY and that is the only answer that matters.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
