Asking why

Updated on August 7, 2011

For most of us; if not all of us; it is very difficult not to ask “why?” in times of hardship, illness or suffering. When you do ask this question (and you probably will because you are only human), it is an extraordinary blessing to learn from God that in the end everything will work out in your favor. The Apostle Paul, who himself experienced his quota of illness, suffering and problems, confirmed this through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, when he said: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (Rom8:28)

Trust that the trials that come into your live, “will work together for good”. After all no parent will let something bad happen to his or her child on purpose. How much more is this true of our heavenly Father? He will never let something happen to you without a purpose! Everything that happens to us works in our favor in God’s perfect plan for our lives.

Our responsibility amongst all of this is to pray and to believe! When Columbus set out to discover the world, he and his crew encountered difficult times together. They were faced with famine and illness. Some of his sailors wanted to revolt, but Columbus ignored the threatening mutiny and just said: “We sail ahead!”
What an awesome demonstration of faith in the invisible, regardless of their perilous circumstances. The joy must have been indescribable when they first saw the new world they were seeking to discover.

Faith is extremely necessary in this world we live in. When everything around you falls apart, it is important to have faith that will remain strong; that you will stay firm in your believe that the world still belongs to God. “The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” (Ps 24:1)

Jesus came to this world not to establish theology, but to establish new, abundant life: “I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (Joh 10:10)

God knows your circumstances; loves you and supports you in every situation. The only condition is that you must completely trust in Him. He gives everyone that depend on Him the strength to believe, so that they may live purposeful and victorious, even in difficult circumstances!

Faith is the courage of the heart to go further than the eye can see. With such a faith we can walk into every new day with our heads held high and with courage, purpose, conviction, Holy momentum (that cannot be stopped) and passion.
In closing I want to leave you with these two Bible verses:
”Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
(Heb 11:1)
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
(Heb 11:6)

Be Blessed!!!!!
