When You Don’t Know Why 11-25-18

Good day to everyone. Oh give thanks unto the lord, for He is good yes He is good and worthy of our praise. I’m urged by the spirit to share with all of you that if you are saved and filled with the spirit, your body is a temple of the living God and requires work in order for it to operate the way it was designed. As you read today’s message, know that it’s speaking to you.

Today’s Prayer

Dear heavenly Father, I come before you today on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to confirm that each of us is a living breathing temple produced by you and as such we should be doing our best to not defile ourselves. I ask that you would prompt each of us as needed to accomplish this task. May we eat, drink, and care for our bodies in the way that brings honor to you. In the matchless name of Jesus I pray, Amen

Let’s eat.

When You Don’t Know Why

 “God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. 2 Samuel 22:31 

When bewilderment is all around you and despair looms at your door, when trials storm the beaches of your life, you may want to ask God, “Why? Why? Why?”

As a minister, I’ve gone to so many funerals, so many hospitals, so many childcare wards. I’ve had strong dads come up to me, their eyes filled with tears, chin quivering. They take me by the arm and say, “Man of God, why is this happening to my child/wife? Why? Why?”

Friends, you may never understand why things are happening the way they are in your life, but that’s not your job. You see, it is not necessary for you to know why. That is God’s question. Your response is all that matters. When we can’t feel His hand, we must trust His heart. Our job is to simply trust and obey.

We want to know why? Where is God? Learn this about life. Life is not a problem to be solved, it is a mystery to be lived. That is what the book of Job is telling us. We do not live by explanations, we live by promises. And God never did explain anything to Job. Sometimes it is God’s plan that we don’t understand. Because when we don’t understand and trust Him, that my friends is a greater, greater faith than understanding and trusting him.

Is something happening for which you have no explanation? Yet you long for answers. Ask God to give you peace and grace to trust Him.

Quote of the Day

Jesus says to you and me, ‘I want to share with you what I have

achieved. I want to live in you. I want to share my risen life with

you.’ How do we get it? We cannot buy it, cannot earn it, cannot work for it-no matter how hard we try. In fact the harder we try, the less likely we are of getting it, because the point is that it is a free gift! We can only accept it free! We can only receive it! We don’t get it by being good! We get it by grace, i.e. Jesus Christ living in us.
