Why We Ask God ‘Why?’

Mark 9:24

Do you ever find yourself in a tragic situation and asked God, ‘Why?

Why is this happening to me?’

For one moment, let’s imagine that God actually answered that question. Would His explanation change anything?

The effects of the tragedy would still be with you, and the pain would be just as severe as it was before. What would you have learned?

When we ask God that question, I think the real questions we’re asking are: ‘God, do You love me? Will You take care of me in my sorrow and pain? You won’t leave me alone, will You?’ Is it possible that, because we’re afraid God doesn’t truly care about us, we ask for explanations?

Instead, we must learn to say: ‘Lord, I believe. I don’t understand, and I’ll probably never grasp all the reasons bad things happen, but I know for certain that You love me and are with me, always.’

I believe it often takes more faith to go through something victoriously than to be delivered from it. Put your faith in God and you’ll come out stronger on the other side.

Prayer

God, I believe in You, even when circumstances try to fill my mind with doubt. Help me to remember Your love for me and to put my faith in You, no matter what happens.

Amen
