Questioning God

Posted on 18 February, 2020 at 20:40

Questioning God


As I was talking with a friend this morning. The question was raised why God let’s things happen? Is it to teach us something, to break us to lean not on our own understanding, or to teach us to put complete trust in Him. As I was watching a episode of Little House on the Prairie and a question was asked.


“Why did God let my wife and daughter die?” — Mr. Edwards


Even today, I wouldn’t have a quick or simple answer to Mr. Edwards’s question. When his family died of scarlet fever, he turned his back on God. Charles wanted Mr. Edwards to join the Ingalls family at church, but he just couldn’t get himself to go.


Our questions are important—they help us communicate with God. I no longer fear asking because I know God can handle our questions. He wants us to ask! Questions begin conversations with Him. And that’s what He’s after— a relationship with us.


Pain and Loss has a way of emboldening our spirits, doesn’t it? In the Bible, Moses boldly answered God with a question in Exodus 3:11. “Who am I to go to the king and lead your people out of Egypt?” (CEV). And David, while waiting, asked the Lord, “How long will it be?” (Psalm 6:3). Even Jesus asked, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” while hanging on the cross (Matthew 27:46 NIV).


The losses and pain forces me to surrender to God’s will. I opened my tight grip and started trusting Him to lead the way, even if the road was rough. The lessons I learned prepared me for future challenges.


God is bigger than our questions, bigger than our troubles. He sees every detail and knows that every tragedy has a purpose. We may never understand the reason for our suffering. Our hearts may feel forever broken. But when our souls ache, and we have questions on our lips, we see our need for Jesus. The questioning is what eventually brought Mr. Edwards to his knees and back to God. When we question we can fully engage— with our hearts open— to receive His comfort.


What hard questions have you asked God?
