If you live in the Northeast, then you’ve been at the mercy of God this winter. One of these days Spring will arrive, yet for now snow, sleet or freezing rain is likely in your weekly forecast. However, these events shouldn’t be shocking since part of God’s nature is doing whatever pleases Him.
The Lord does whatever pleases him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths. – Psalm 135:6
Whether worldviews are formed through Sunday School, reading books or how you were raised, few have a clear understanding of God’s attributes. Instead of researching the Scriptures to make sense of the bumps and bruises individuals experience, many human beings respond to trials by accusing, blaming or cursing the Lord for their misery. When unfortunate events continue to pile up without any end in sight, even the strong can lose hope.
“I cry out to you, God, but you do not answer; I stand up, but you merely look at me. You turn on me ruthlessly; with the might of your hand you attack me. You snatch me up and drive me before the wind; you toss me about in the storm.” – Job 30:20-22
Although the majority of Christians are uninformed while living on earth, one day the life you endure on this planet will make sense. I’m assuming some where along the way, God will unveil the jigsaw puzzle known as your life. This may not happen until being called home to heaven, but one day the “whatever” in life will be revealed.
