Sometimes it feels like the bottom has fallen out of our lives. We are on this continuous downward spiral. Darkness is closing in and there is no hope of light ever breaking through. We ask why. Why has God forsaken us? Why has God allowed this to happen? We simply ask; why me?
Over the last couple of days, I have learned some of the answers to the whys and I really wanted to share it with you in the hopes that it will help someone who may be going through a rough patch.
So here are 3 reasons why….
- There are Lessons to be learned: If we are planted and rooted in God then we have the faith to know that everything works out for our good. Faith is not made strong in blindness but is made strong in the truth of God. If we take the time to truly know God, then the experience will not break us but it will make us wise. We will have a wisdom that we can carry with us and pass onto others.
- Because God trusts us: I cannot help but to think of Job. Job suffered tremendously, but it was because God trusted him. God knew that Job would make it through the hardship and that Job would never turn his back on God. Sometimes when we are going through tribulation it’s because God knows that we will never turn our back on him. It because God has placed his bet on the best of his children so be grateful and joyful that your father has so much faith and pride in you.
- To prepare us for the next level: I have gone through a lot of hardship and troubled times in my life but there was one particular time that seem to almost get the best of me. I cried out to God. I asked why, why me, why now, why, why, why; and I heard God say, “If you can’t handle this then you will never be able to go where I am taking you.” I said ok, and used the storm to carry me higher. To propel me to the next level. As the level gets higher the storms get stronger but this is an indication that you are growing. So do not be weary but rejoice that you will be better than what you were.
