May 5, 2016 WHY ME
So many times we get bombarded with issues. We get sick. We get bills. We get angry. We wonder why this is happening to us. Everyone else seems to be doing fine but we have this enormous amount of problems. We wonder why me? We may never know why we have to deal with things in our lives but God has the answer. He may be teaching us something in the midst of our problems. He may be working on us so we will grow strong in His word. When we wonder why me, we need to examine our own life and ask God what He wants us to learn from our situation and He will show us.
Psalm 37:5 "Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you." (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know you want to teach us. We know there are times when we are dealing with tough situations and we forget You. Remind us in our hard times You have a lesson for us. You have a story You are creating in our lives for us to learn from and share with others. Remind us to be grateful for our hard times because You tell us when we put our faith in You, You will make us stronger. In Jesus' name. Amen.
When we are wondering why so much bad is happening to us, we need to seek God.
When we have rough times, we need to make sure we are committing our lives to God and trusting in Him.
God wants to help us in the hard times, but He also wants to teach us in the midst of our problems to rely only on Him.
God can teach us something in any situation but we have to be ready and willing to learn.
There is a time when God wants us to search for answers and a time when He wants us to stop and simply trust in Him.
Ecclesiastes 3:6a "A time to search and a time to quit searching." (NLT)
Focus: Hard times come to all people. What they choose to do and to learn from those hard times is up to them.
