Don’t ever question God because you think He’s doing you wrong, lest He humbles you.
  

  

How many times have you found yourself questioning why you go through the things you go through? Maybe you question God, maybe you question yourself.

When we question God has a way of humbling us and reminding us that He is still God. In Job 38:4, the Lord asks Job “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth, tell me if you understand.” Humans, in their limited capacity, cannot possibly question God who created EVERYTHING, including the foundations of the earth.

“You wasn’t with Jesus shooting in the gym.”

While it isn’t wise to question God, you should certainly ask that He reveal unknown things to you; and that He helps you to trust the plan He has for you. BE HONEST WITH GOD. It isn’t like He doesn’t already know how you’re feeling….but He still requires you tell Him.

Example, if you continuously have relationship issues instead of asking “Why me?” ask Him “What is it that you are trying to teach me? Help me gain wisdom and understanding!”

Quite often, we use our own rationale to draw conclusions about our lives. But the Bible says in Proverbs 21:2 “Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart.”

You must learn to not lean on your own understanding! Some of our issues happen to be God’s divine plan for our lives. Instead of complaining and questioning God, ask for wisdom and understanding. James 1:5 says “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

Also, Proverbs 4:7 says “Wisdom is the PRINCIPAL thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting GET UNDERSTANDING!

Today, Limit your complaints, maximize your praise; and ask God to give you a spirit of discernment, wisdom, and understanding.

Be blessed x

    This is long… sorry….

    Oh my goodness! This must be God speaking as I am hearing this pop up everywhere I look.

    1. I went through an experience where I was hurt by a platonic male friend who finally realized I was not going to date him because he was unsaved. He said some hurtful words and ties were severed. But in the midst of all the embarrassment God was with me and he is processing to the point now where outwardly forgiveness toward the guy is not the only concern but in the condition of my heart and my response to pain and hardship.

    He is giving me fresh eyes for that situation I went through. My pride and ego because of how embarrassed at first did not allow me to see any good that could have come from that experience. But I am slowly re-framing it.

    2. Following this He gave me specific instructions about waiting on His timing for a mate and to trust His provision. I’ve gone through feelings of cynicism and doubt and frustration.

    There is a constant war I am feeling .

    1. At times when people ask why I have been single for so long, I reply (because my Father is preparing an arranged marriage for me.) I meditate on the words “Sarah judged him faithful) “Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised” (Hebrews 11:11) and I encourage myself and feel strong waiting on the promised.

    Then at other times the why’s arise and complaining begins.

    WHY…. have I up age 29 never had a boyfriend or a date?

    Self image issues come up and I struggle with WHY….. did God give me this body? If I were shaped this way .. or looked like that I’d have been booed up by now.

    Sometimes I go through feeling like I don’t have the credentials for guys find intriguing and know that catching Mr. Right on my own is highly unlikely.

    So I am back to trusting and depending on God’s timing and trusting Him with the unknown. But I want to trust Him in the right attitude, one that shows humble obedience and faith.

    I want to guard against what Psalms 78:19 said of the Israelites –

    They spoke against God; they said, “Can God really spread a table in the wilderness? Psalms 78:19

    My head and heart knows God will come through.. and I must trust him.

    Thank you for this post. It meant soooo much.

Yes, unfortunately words of anger were said I was hurt in the process and ties were severed. But now God s processing past the point of forgiveness toward examining the condition of my heart and my response to pain and hardship. He is giving me fresh eyes as my hurt pride did not allow me to see any good that could have come from that experience. But I am slowly re-framing it.

    WHY…. have I up age 29 never had a boyfriend or a date? WHY….. did God give me this body? If I were shaped this way .. or looked like that I’d surely have been booed up by now. I try to fix it and still feel like I am not what captures guys’ attention or can attract Mr. Right on my own.

    I mean Christians date healthily and successfully all the time, so sometimes I feel discouraged but most times I go back to trusting and depending on God’s.
    But I want to trust Him in the right attitude, one that shows humble obedience and faith, steadfastly so.

    I want to guard against what Psalms 78:19 said of the Israelites –

    They spoke against God; they said, “Can God really spread a table in the wilderness? Psalms 78:19

    This really insulted God, and that I don’t want to do.

    Thank you for this post. It meant soooo much.

      Simone, sorry for the delay in my response. When I first read this it was so overwhelming. I’ll just encourage you by saying this, I HAVE SIMILAR SENTIMENTS! but I’m always comforted by the Word:

      1. For the vision is yet for the appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry! Habakkuk 2:3

      2. But they that WAIT upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

      3. Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Romans 4:18

      4. It was by FAITH that even Sarah was able to have a child … Hebrews 11:11

      It won’t be much longer dear! God bless you and strength your faith from henceforth!
