Why God? Why? It’s a question we often ask Him. Why did I lose my job? Why does my mom have Alzheimer’s? Why is my friend having to deal with this sickness? Why do bad things happen to good people? Why is there so much suffering in the world? These are some of the questions that I have asked God. I’m sure you have similar questions that you have asked Him. Why?
We have all these questions for God, but do we ever consider the questions that He asks us? Maybe the reason He doesn’t answer us is because we haven’t bothered to answer Him. He has been asking questions since before we existed. And His questions demand an answer.
Brace yourself; I will question you, and you shall answer me. Job 38:3 NIV
There is much that we learn when we answer God’s questions. His queries not only reveal who we are. If we are brave enough to be laid bare before the Lord and answer His questions, we will have the added benefit of gaining a better understanding of His nature and who He is. We will also get a better grasp of who we are in Him. And in one of those mysteries of God, if we will spend time considering and answering His question, many of our questions about Him will be answered. Are you willing to be questioned by God?
