Demanding Answers- Why!

 Isaiah 45:9-12 (ESV)  “Woe to him who strives with him who formed him, a pot among earthen pots! Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’ or ‘Your work has no handles’? Woe to him who says to a father, ‘What are you begetting?’ or to a woman, ‘With what are you in labor?’” Thus says the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and the one who formed him: “Ask me of things to come; will you command me concerning my children and the work of my hands? I made the earth and created man on it; it was my hands that stretched out the heavens, and I commanded all their host. Furthermore, listen to what God told Job in Job chapter 38.  ““Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words? Brace yourself like a man, because I have some questions for you, and you must answer them. “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?  Do we demand answers when our lives are spiraling out of control? What about when our money is funny? Or even better yet, what about when a loved one, is sick or dying? Sure, we can demand answers however, we cannot force God’s hand in any issue or circumstance. Humans will always have questions because there is much missing information God has not reveal to us yet.  However, God knows all things. Bottom line is our puny finite minds can only handle so much. Isaiah 30:21 explains “And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. We cannot help but to ask questions in trying situations and circumstances. But the truth is God is not going to beat us down if we ask questions. God loves us with an unfailing Love. He knows our pain!  However, we  begin asking less questions when we ask God to fine tune our spiritual hearing so we can hear Him speak truth. He will comfort us in our distress. Listen patiently for His sweet consoling voice.
