Life’s Unanswered Questions

Throughout life we may experience sorrows for which there are no adequate explanations. Some are catastrophic events with far-reaching effects, while others are personal, private tragedies that alter our individual lives and families. We want to know why, but we seem to find more questions than answers. Yet even as we struggle with “Why?” God extends His unfailing love to us.

When Job lost his children and his wealth in a single day (Job 1:13-19) he resisted any attempted explanations by his friends. Yet he held out hope that someday there would be an answer from God. Even in the darkness Job could say,

[God] knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold (23:10).

Oswald Chambers said,

There will come one day a personal and direct touch from God when every tear and perplexity, every oppression and distress, every suffering and pain, and wrong and injustice will have a complete and ample and overwhelming explanation.

Today, as we face life’s unanswered questions, we can find help and hope in God’s love and promises.
