In light of all the recent travesties that have taken place in Canada, we both felt it was a pertinent time to have a conversation with you ladies about questioning God. Are we allowed to question where God is in times of trouble and hardship, or are we to just simply go along with things as if we are emotionless robots? Listen to our thoughts and join in with your own!
Is it okay to question God?
- All throughout the Psalms we see David questioning God over and over again. See Psalm 10:1.
- Even Jesus cried out on the cross! See Matthew 27:46.
Yes, we have permission to question God. But in the midst of our emotions and questions, we need to always go back and remember who He is, a good, faithful Father. Even though His will is for beauty and life and restoration in the midst of a broken world, He allows us to choose sin and reap the consequences because He doesn't want robots, He wants children. In the midst of hardship and trouble, we need to remember that His ways are not our ways, and that He does promises to always work out a day of evil for those who love Him (Romans 8:28), though we may not see it until the days of Glory.
Though this may not fix things, it ultimately should give us a sense of unexplainable peace in the midst of sorrow and/or anger.
