Summer thoughts to keep you on the journey: Answering the ‘why?’ question
You’ve likely heard this all before, you may even tired of it by now. So please take this as a gentle reminder for this who may still be asking the ‘why?” question these days. This is not just about Covid but a whole of things. There is much uncertainty these days and its natural to ask ‘why’? That’s a healthy thing to do in changing times like these but when this leads to more questions there are a couple of things we can remember as we go through tough times:
First off, remember WHOSE you are. Ephesians 2:10 says we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. So, God isn’t surprised by what’s going on, He’s still in charge and He’s working things out for His glory. As much as it’s nice to know we have purpose, our main purpose is not what we do but who we are in Jesus. Times of testing show this to ourselves and the world around us, it’s part of our witness.
As we deal with the inevitable and very real ‘why?’ questions it’s good to remember that a disappointment can be God’s appointment based on what you do with it. He that is in us is greater than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4), He’s working things out. Those classic words of Proverbs 3:5-6 come to mind: trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in everything you do remember He is the King of Kings and He’ll make your path straight. Not easy, but straight, and it’ll lead you to a finish line where once crossed there are no more ‘why’ questions.
In His grip,
