Sometimes I’ve felt like if I could just understand WHY, I would be so much better. Why did this have to happen? Why did that happen? Why couldn’t things have been different? Why now? Why him? If I just knew….why. it may be the loss of a child or other loved one. it may be the loss of a job; a relationship; finances.
I was reading my devotional the other morning and it was truly enlightening and i’d like to share it with you. Hopefully you will find it helpful as well.
Understanding will never bring you Peace. That’s why I have instructed you to trust in Me and not in your understanding Human beings have a voracious appetite for trying to figure things out, in order to gain a sense of mastery over their lives. But the world presents you with an endless series of problems, As soon as you master one set, another pops up to challenge you. the relief you had anticipated is short-lived. Soon you mind is gearing up again; searching for understanding (mastery) , instead of seeming Me (your Master). (Excerpt from Jesus Calling)
It’s so important not to stare too long at the closed door .Death, hurt and pain come because of sin; because of Satan, the evil one. Allow yourself to grief the loss, Know that God is with you and that He loves you. Trust that He has a plan for your life and allow Him to move you forward; one step at a time.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
