Suffering Christians Encouragement for those who are hurting

19Feb/10Off

Quote of the Day: Why?

I do believe that focusing on “Why?” questions can lead to confusion and despair if we demand answers from God that He has not promised to give us.

--David Sunday (pastor of Grace Community Bible Church)

You can read the end of the book of Job to see that God doesn't answer why in that situation and often doesn't.

See the context at Between Two Worlds

As David Sunday says, we should ask, '“Who is God?” “What does He want to teach us?” and “How can we glorify him in this?”'

(I'm not so sure God always tells us what He wants to teach us either.)

This reminds me of a quote I've posted before:

"But what kept me going more than anything else was my confidence in the character of God."

--Ravi Zacharias quoting Charles Cooper
