“Why did this have to happen to me?
“Why do all of the bad people in the world get away with everything and all the good people suffer?”
“Why did they leave me alone?”
“Why did my parents not love me?”
“Where are You in all of this hurt?”
“Why are they acting this way?”
“Why does nothing ever go right for me?”
“Why was I even born?”
“Why can I not be like them?”
“Why do I always do the things I don’t want to do and never do the things I want to do?”
Let me give you some really great advice that will help you strengthen your walk with God. This is time tested advice that comes directly from God’s Word:
Never ask why.
“Why” is for God to answer and by the way, He will not answer any “why” questions until you are ready to handle them, and that will not be until you are in Heaven.
You see, God can see everything: all things past, present, and future. We can barely see past our own noses. So which one of us is better suited to know everything about everything – us or God? God of course, therefore do not waste your time with “why” questions. You will only drive yourself mad and drive a wedge between you and God.
Leave “why” to God. He will answer all of those “why”s when you see Him personally – oh and then none of it will matter anyway!!!
God, please forgive us for having a desperate need to know why things happen in our lives. We are a people who seek justice for the injustice. We are made in Your image as You told us and therefore justice and understanding are important to us. So help us to realize that you own the “why” and that we own the “faith” in You to know that You are in control of the world, even when it makes no sense to us. You are in control when everything in world seems to spinning and sinking. You are God – we are not, and praise Your holy name that we are not because we would be pathetic at trying to be You. We love You, even when we do not understand! In Jesus name, Amen.
With Great Love,
Pastor Brad Komgenick
