wfw - Why Did This Happen to Me?

1 Corinthians 10:11 "These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the age to come."

"Why did this happen to me?" is always the question asked when some one is on a difficult situation. Has that question ever come from your heart? So does God simply ignore your questions? Or does He answer in ways that you find hard to understand and, therefore, you assume He is ignoring you? First. God understand the anguish of your heart, and fortunately, is more understanding with you than you are with Him. Second, God is not obligated to explain everything that happens to us. God is God and He answers no one. Sometimes we look back in retrospect and understand clearly why something happened, but in most cases if God should tell us why something happened, we still couldn't understand. Far better it is to know that He cares and will eventually lead us out of our pain than to know why He allowed it.

    So true! He sees the big picture, and we need to trust Him even when we dont know the big picture. He knows what is best for us.
