I wonder how many times we have asked God the same question. “Where were you God when this happened in my life?”, “Why You did not do anything?”, “Where were You when this happened?”
Though we know God cares and loves us, it is often hard to think of the real truth when we are hurting. “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” King David even continued to say,” why do I cry out to you but you do not answer?” King David felt God had abandoned him.
Job too shared the same frustration after losing his families, friends, wealth and his health in one day. Job was angry with God.
Despite the reactions given by these two men, God loves them still. Even after they expressed their anger and frustration, Jesus sees them no less and He came through for them and blessed these two men in their latter days.
Jesus can handle our emotions and frustration; nothing is too overwhelming for Him. Be honest with him. He cares to listen to the good and bad, the praise and the groaning.
In the end, all things will work out because Jesus is the author and the perfecter of our faith in all trials. If it hasn’t worked out, then God’s work in you is not finished yet. He will bless your latter days, that is the truth promised in the Bible. King David and Job had that victory.
Psalm 22: 1 - 2
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish? My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest.
- John W
