Trust in Christ to Lead You

You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to  honor and glory. —Psalm 73:24

We believe that God is inherently good and that He is also in control  of our lives. Therefore, when tragedy strikes or loss occurs, we don’t  understand why God does not prevent such things from happening to us and  hurting us so badly.

Faced with tragic loss, often we become angry and ask, “If God is  good and all-powerful, why does He allow bad things to happen to good  people?” This question becomes a major issue when it is we, God’s own  children, who are the ones suffering.

At such times, reasoning wants to scream out, “This makes no sense  at all!” Over and over the question, “Why, God, why?” torments  those who are grieving over losses in their life, just as it also tortures the  lonely and the dejected. Excessive reasoning, trying to figure out things for  which we will not be able to find an answer, torments and brings much  confusion; but Proverbs 3:5,6 tells us that trust in the Lord brings assurance  and direction: Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your  heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In  all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct  and make straight and plain your paths. When we face a time of crisis in  life, we need direction. These scriptures tell us that trusting God is the way  to find that direction. Trust requires allowing some unanswered questions  to be in your life!

No matter how badly you may be hurting from a loss or tragedy, the Holy  Spirit can give you a deep peace that somehow everything will be all right.  Being angry at God is useless because He is the only One Who can help.
