Do you ever wonder and question God and His timing? Do you ever sit and ponder and ask God those tough â€œBut why, God?â€ questions? Or do you just simply look at all that is happening and taking place in your life, or those around you and say, â€œWhy? Why me? Why them? And what now?â€
Oh my dear friends, I am fairly certain every one of us has had those moments and times of questioning Him in all that we have to walk through. I know for a fact I have asked those questions even earlier this morning for my own life and all that is taking place around me. I assure you there is nothing wrong with the questions and with us questioning our amazing Daddy God. He has most likely already heard them all. The scripture has already assured us, â€œHe knows the end from the beginning,â€ â€œHis ways are perfect,â€ â€œEverything has a purpose and a season,â€ and of course the hardest part of what He has to say with all of the questioning will be,â€œIn His time.â€ But if you are like me, the questions still persist and always come, no matter what.
I really have to admit I have no patience; I mean ZERO patience and I would most likely argue with many of you that I have more questions of â€œwhyâ€ than you do. I really doâ€¦and if you could hear me walking and praying daily, you would most likely see that first hand.
But in the midst of all of the questioning, searching and seeking of answers and striving to find solutions for all that is taking place, here is what I have found to be so true. Itâ€™s fairly simple, and I have no earthly idea of how I truly came to the place of where I stand strong on what His truth declares for me, but itâ€™s this: He is faithful, He is good, He is a constant friend, He will never leave me nor forsake me, and He will never put on me what I cannot handle.
Thatâ€™s it. Itâ€™s really nothing deep or super spiritual. Maybe itâ€™s me getting older and learning to at least strive to trust more, or else it is me choosing to look back at every place and stage of my life and see how even amid all of the dark lonely valleys of questioning, He was always right there beside me and He has always been right on time. I assure you if you stop and take a long look at your own life, you will find it to be the same. He will not leave us. He will not forsake us. He will be with us always and He does have the perfect answer to every question we have.
Oh, for some of those questions, His answers will not be what we would choose and for some of them, we may not get the answers until we stand before Him, and you know what? Thatâ€™s ok. He has it all in control and He has every answer that we need. Itâ€™s plain and simple and when we truly decide to embrace that and at least try to grasp it, it will help take us to a more peaceful place on the journey.
Yes, I will still have questions, lots of them. But I know that I know that I knowâ€¦He has the answers.
You are loved my friends and He has the answers for you as well. In His time.
