Stop Asking Why

Why do You stand far away, Lord? Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?
Psalms 10:1 NASB2020

It’s not wrong to ask why, but don’t exhaust yourself with asking. Sometimes God has His own reasons and He really doesn’t owe us an explanation.

I’m reminded of Isaiah 55:8-9; “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

Why, you ask? Why? Because He’s God, and sometimes we forget that He always has a plan and we’re not privy to that plan. Someday, the things we are shortsighted in will be as plain as the nose on our face, but until that day, we’re prompted to trust Him. Will you do that?

Stop asking why and begin asking, “What do you need me to do next?” Stop questioning and start trusting. Passionate obedience yields breakthroughs in every area of your life.

I will end with Isaiah 55:10-11; “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth and making it produce and sprout, and providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the purpose for which I sent it.”

He has a bigger plan and you must play your small part. Let it be enough.
