What causes you to question God’s ways? What loss, what difficulty, what frustration do you struggle with that causes you to ask God, "Why?" But who are you, with limited understanding and imperfect judgment, to question God, who has full understanding and perfect judgment? Who are you to question the One who makes no mistakes? "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been His counselor? Who has ever given to God that God should repay Him?"
But the One who owes you nothing has given you everything. For God’s ways led to a cross where the richness of Christ’s blood covered all your sin, where your Savior freed you from all that condemns you, and where all the real questions ended with a divine exclamation point: "It is finished!" These are the realities of your salvation. Could you have imagined this or planned this or accomplished this in any way? Yet God did. "For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things." In the end, the "whys" don’t need an answer when you know you are forgiven and going to heaven through faith in your crucified and risen Savior. Come and see how GOD SILENCES YOUR "WHYS" WITH HIS GRACE. "To Him be the glory forever. Amen."
