The Answer to “Why” and “What if”

Posted on: March 18, 2009

“I will proclaim the name of the Lord; how glorious is our God!  He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect.  Everything he does is just and fair.  He is a faithful God who does no wrong;  how just and upright He is!”  Deuteronomy 32:3-4 NLT

God is so faithful, and His Word so perfect.  He hears my heart’s cry and He answers me in His Word.  I’ve been struggling these last few days with so many “what ifs” and “whys.”  These few statements quiet all questions.  God, You are glorious.  I can’t even comprehend how holy and perfect You are.  You are my Rock; never shaking, always the same.  You love me now; you will love me as much tomorrow and next week and forever. You are perfect; You never do anything wrong or from selfish motives or just to be mean.  Your justice and fairness are absolute.

God, You are faithful.  Oh, how I love that security!  You never do anything that is wrong.  Never and always are words that can not apply to human nature, but they completely apply to You.  Dear Father, I don’t need to have “whys” and “what ifs.”  I can trust You completely, even when I don’t understand.  You have Your reasons, and they are always right.  All you ask is that I trust You, follow You, cling to You, obey You.

It’s the least I can do. . .

I want to know what you think!
