The Next Time You Ask “Why”…..

It is human nature for us to ask “why?” From the moment we are able to talk, we begin asking “why?” There are so many things that we want to know, so many things that we cannot comprehend. Why do birds fly? Why can fish breath underwater? But, there are also other questions that we have for God. Why did my family member get cancer? Why did my child die? Why did I lose my job and get evicted from my house? Why did my spouse leave me for another person? These are the hardest questions. We may want to ask God “why?” but remember what was said to Job.

In Job 37:5-12 we read, “ God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend. For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’; Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength. He seals the hand of every man, That all men may know His work. The beasts go into dens, And remain in their lairs. From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind, And cold from the scattering winds of the north. 10 By the breath of God ice is given, And the broad waters are frozen. 11 Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; He scatters His bright clouds. 12 And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance, That they may do whatever He commands them
On the face of the whole earth.

We may want to ask God “why?”. We may even question. But remember this, the God that made everything work perfectly in this world will also make everything work perfectly in your life. We may want to ask “why?”, but even if the Lord were to answer we probably wouldn’t be able to comprehend it. Instead of asking “why?”, give thanks that the God that made the universe is also in control of your life.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
