two or three things about your demand for an explanation of the things that happen in your life.
one, GOD doesn’t owe you an explanation for anything. HE’s not obligated to explain everything that HE does to you.
two, even if HE did explain why things happen the way they do, you probably wouldn’t understand it.
GOD’s mind is so much greater than your mind, you can’t comprehend all the ways of GOD. there are forces at work in your life, in your family, in our world and throughout history that, if GOD sat down and took the time to explain to you how generations affect generations and on and on, you probably wouldn’t understand it anyway.
third, explanations never bring peace anyway. you think, “if i just knew why this happened, then it would make sense” no, it won’t.
some of you have figured out why certain things happened in your life but it didn’t bring peace. you still felt resentful or bitter or angry or upset or whatever. explanations never satisfy.
what comforts us is the presence of GOD in our life. not GOD’s explanations, GOD’s care and concern and comfort. stop looking for something that you really don’t need.
just a thought from the front porch…
