Why? It’s a question that’s been asked by thousands of people across the globe and many perhaps sitting not too far from you. Why did my son die in a helicopter drill in Iraq? Why did my husband/wife leave me after all of these years? Why did I get laid off? Why didn’t God stop that drunk driver before he hit my baby? Why do I have cancer? Why won’t my children talk to me anymore?
I’ve asked many why questions and I’m sure you have too. During my journey through life, however, I’ve yet for God to give me every reason why. I find comfort in God’s Word where we see “the reason” for certain individuals’ journey through the pain. We see Joseph’s journey though abandonment in order to set the stage for the movement of God’s children to Egypt. Later we see Daniel’s journey in the lion’s den so that God’s power could be revealed. Then we see our Lord Jesus’ journey to the cross to provide for our salvation.
My friend, as you are seeking answers to your “why” questions, do not be discouraged if the seeming silence is deafening, rather, ask God to help you set your discouragement aside and rest in the powerful truth that “I AM” is right by your side in the midst of your circumstances.
