I’ve been thinking about the question, “Why?” a lot lately.
So much happening. We have seen so many great servants go home to be with the Lord — great men and women who loved God and served him faithfully. We have also seen our share of tragedy as well. And I can’t help but be tempted to ask God why this is happening, not in a way that questions Him as God, but attempting to gain understanding.
Then I think that asking God, “Why?” wouldn’t really help. If He gave me an answer, I would probably have another why. God wants us to trust Him, even when something doesn’t make any sense to us whatsoever. I believe that’s why He tells us not to rely on our understanding, but put our trust in Him. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
Father knows best:
We feel the pain, sting of loss, and we don’t like it. Well, I don’t anyway. So, when I’m tempted to ask God, “Why?” I think about Deuteronomy 29:29a — The secret things belong to the Lord our God.There are just some things we won’t ever know. So, it comes back to trusting Him — that He truly knows best!
Trust Him with all your heart.
Just a thought,
