Ever Wonder Why God?
I sometimes wonder "Why God?"
Why do these things happen to me?
Why am i the one going through this?
Why is this happening to the people I care about?
Why do all the bad things happen to us?
God doesn’t do bad or harm to us.
God puts us through TRIALS.
? What are trials?
Trials in the bible means Tests.
? Why does he Test us?
He tests us to see just how strong our faith in him is. To see how long we can go until we say "I GIVE UP" "I CAN'T HANDLE IT"
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4
? Why does God test your faith.....?
God test your faith because he wants to know if you’re truly his or if your 99% saved because if you are 99% saved then you’re really not saved at all
For me I believe Medical problems, money problems, car trouble, needing your house fixed, friends being sick or worse passing on, family passing away......All of that I believe are a type of trial God may start off with small trials but in time he will make the problems bigger and see where you stand with him....
? Can you fail trials?
Yes no it doesn’t mean you’ll go to hell
What it means is God will give you a new trial may be easier may be harder but either way it’s a trial..
? Why does this happen to me?
It's not only happening to you so don't think Gods turned him back on you just wait In God's time the solution will come.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience Romans 8:25
? Why does my car have to mess up? Why does my house have to be falling apart?
Remember it could be worse you could not have a car or house at all you could have to walk EVERYWHERE... others have it worse than you a car that messes up can be fixed most the time a house can be fixed at least you have one.
? Why do I have all these medical problems?
You have the problems you have so you can go out and tell your story and hopefully one day you can tell someone else and they can tell others and they will see that through it all God was with you and you believed in God along the way
? Why do things happen to people you care about?
Because while testing their faith he test everyone’s faith around that
In the end God doesn’t do "bad" things he puts you through trials he tests your faith and hopes you make it through so he can call you his child and let you enter the kingdom of God. He puts you through things for you to have a story to show and so people can see how he helped you through it and so today people can see God through you. Even though you’ve been through lot
So instead of saying why God?
Try saying.....Thank you God
Instead of cursing God for trials lift him up and let him know you know the reason he is doing those things.
In your weakest moments and darkest hours ask God for guidance and for him to shine a light and show the way.
But last of all THANK HIM for everything not just the good but the trials you go through also because it's made you who you are today, it's given you story to tell and it’s all because of GOD
