When we go through painful times of struggle or suffering, the one thing we want most from God is answers. We think that if He would just explain why He is allowing us to hurt so badly, things would be better. But the truth is, God’s explanations would only raise more questions. Answers are not what we need. Instead, we should pray for a fresh revelation of God’s greatness, because once we catch a glimpse of His greatness and glory, all of life and its struggles will be put into perspective, and we will be able to see that He is indeed in control and He knows what He is doing, even when we don’t understand.
The people who have had the greatest impact on history are those who have dared to break through the barriers of conventional thinking and ask “What if?” Too often we become complacent in our Christian lives and choose to just drift along with the crowd. It’s time to dig beneath our surface Christianity and ask the questions that really matter. Are you brave enough to ask these questions too?
