I ask why bad things happen to good people. My finite mind cannot grasp the ways of our infinite God. Those that know Christ, through a personal relationship, call Him both Savior and Lord. It's easy to entrust lives of loved ones in fair weather days. When storms arise, I falter.
God's answers may not come in this lifetime. I am learning to trust His silences.
A heartbroken mother came to Jesus, bringing her daughter in desperate need of healing. Crying out, she entreated Him to have mercy on her. (Matthew 15:21-28)
His first response was not what she desired.
"Yet, He did not say a word to her (Matthew 15:23a HCS)."
In this instance, Jesus did fulfill the request and yet, I do not always get the miraculous healing and deliverance I seek. In times as these I remember Jesus own words.
"And He said, 'Abba, Father! All things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me. Nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will (Mark 14:36 HCS)."
