Are you seeking God for answers?

When problems occur in your life, do you ever question God and ask “why?” Do you ever wonder why such a good God would allow so much pain and so much suffering? For example, have you ever thought to yourself “Why is this happening to me?” or “Why do I have to go through this?”, or why me God? Even the most devoted Christian has asked these questions at some point in his or her walk with God, so if you have asked these questions dear one, you are not alone. These moments of doubt have happened to all of us at some time or another, but rather than worry or fall into the trap of questioning God when challenges come, we’d like to encourage you to see troublesome times as opportunities to develop a closer relationship with God. Troublesome times drive you to God and make you search for Him and make you need Him like no other times. It is during the troublesome times in your life that you begin to realize that not only is God very real but He does have your very best interest at heart. If you keep on praying to God and trusting in Him, you will get to learn about different aspects of God and how He is able to work things out in the midst of your troubles that you may not have otherwise gotten to know about unless the trouble happened to you.


A Believer has the answer to every challenge or problem he or she may face in life—the Word of God. It is your source of comfort and strength during the storms of life. However, allowing your emotions and frustrations to override your faith and trust in God creates a sense of panic and gives way to a victim mentality. This will only keep you stuck in your situation. So how do you change your response to trouble? By making the Word of God your final authority and understanding that God is your only source for strength and victory. Recognize that no problem is greater than His power to overcome it. Realize that He is with you and for you and although He allowed the trouble, He did not cause it, but He will help you through it each and every step of the way. So do not let challenges devastate you, whether financial, emotional, marital or physical. The Word of God never guaranteed that after being born again, the rest of your days would be easy and stress-free. The moment you devote your life to serving God, it’s inevitable that trials and tribulation will come. But your relationship with God is the key to conquering them. The enemy will do everything in his power to prevent you from becoming totally dependent on God and trusting in Him and His Word. But Psalm 125:1 says, “They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abided forever.”


When you meditate on God’s Word and accept that challenging times will come, the Word will create in you a foundation by which to build your trust in God. This increases your ability to be unmovable by the enemy’s attacks and it will help you not to question God so much about why things happen as they do. When your trust in God is sure and firm, instead of questioning God, you will wonder How will God solve this trouble? You will be waiting to marvel at how your awesome God will show up and fix what has been unfix-able because of this trouble? Having a positive attitude and being expectant of God to act to solve your troubles when confronted with negative situations makes all the difference in the world. Even though this is easier said than done, we’ve managed to stay positive and to continue communicating with God daily through prayer, praise, worship and the studying of His Word. We encourage you to do the same if you want to see God’s breakthroughs in your life for whatever is troubling you. Don’t question God’s love for you, but stay focused on His promises. Your efforts to trust God rather than question Him will go a long way. By demonstrating your faith through continually confessing the Word over your situation and believing with all of your heart, you will begin to see God’s power at work in your life. Remember that God isn’t a respecter of persons, but He is a respecter of faith (Acts 10:34).


Don’t give in to your problems; God’s Word has prepared you for all the trials and temptations you will face. As you grow in your walk with the Lord, your trust in Him will develop as well. Don’t condemn yourself if at first it seems hard to trust Him. God understands the struggles that Believers face but He has also given you His Word, which is the only resource you need to be victorious over any circumstance you face. Use every opportunity you get to build your faith in God’s love for you and His ability to bring you out. Instead of breaking down, blaming God and asking, “Why?” be confident in Him and know that He is working out every detail of your life for your good and His glory! So remember to keep your daily appointment with God and read His word, God is working 24 hours a day 7 days a week to make things better for you and for those you love! Remember to use the below resources to spend time with God and deepen your understanding of God’s word!

God’s word will be a lamp unto you feet if you dig into it and absorb what His word has to say to you!
