Daily Devotional – 5/20/14 “I can’t question God!”

I find it ironic that on 5/20/13 my devotional was titled “Why are you questioning God?” Now, I said that because the way things have been happening lately with sickness attacking my family, I could have questions slipping off of my lips to God but I can’t. I can’t question God because whatever will He has, it’ll be done with or without my questions. But with that being the case, it’s still not the reason I can’t question God. I can’t question God because who am I? Yea, I could have some why us God, why me God, why my family God but I can’t because why not us, why not me, why not my family? We have to go through just like everybody else. Yes, I understand that sometimes our flesh takes over and we want to question God. I mean, I get it (a little), I understand (some of it), I’ve had my share of pain (it hurts), I’ve been where you are (not exactly where but), I’ve been through something similar to you (I’m still here), I’ve had my share of hurt (It sucks) but guess what? You either deal with it or you don’t. I won’t live my life questioning God when He doesn’t question me. When I was lost and thought this flesh of mine had sealed my fate, Jesus told me in John 8:15, “You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one.” When I thought I couldn’t be saved because of my past, Isaiah 43:18 tells me, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past,” for 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” When I sin and I repent, God says in Isaiah 43:25, “I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.” When I am sick and need healing, lost and need guidance, temporarily out of funds and need providing for, down and need to be picked up or at the door and it’s locked; God tells me in Matthew 7:7, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” Even when I think sickness is too much and death may one day come, my bible tells me in Romans 14:8, “For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.” So you see, I can’t question God because He’s already left me the answers. #thatsenough
