Questions are important, but so is faith.

Well this is something I’ve been working up to writing about for a while. And honestly, the main reason i haven’t written about this till now is because i’ve been in two minds about actually getting this out there without misrepresenting the point i’m trying to make.

I’m going to be 100% honest, i really struggle with some of the word sometimes, but to be clear, i am NOT saying that the bible is wrong, by no means is that what i’m saying, but i’d be lying if i said that i understood everything inside the bible. But this is what i want to tackle today, that is in fact okay to have questions about your faith, about the content of the bible and the context of some of the events.

For example, for a number of years i’ve always struggled with the Abraham and the call from God to sacrifice his son Issac, and from a human perspective, it’s still something that i wrestle with, but God has answered my question in that issue (Check out that post here God himself will provide the lamb.) or even comprehending the trinity, it blows my mind trying to comprehend our God being  3 different beings (father, spirit, son) ,yet being all parts of the same amazing God.

We as mere humans are never going to comprehend everything that the Lord has put before us, we may never understand some of the things he’s placed in his word, or why some events may happen in our lives. And honestly. that’s okay. I don’t see anything wrong with having questions about why God has put us through certain things. In fact, i’d say it’s healthy to have these sorts of questions, that we study what we can in the word of God to understand why some things happen, or pray over a passage that we have struggles with. And sometimes the Lord will give us clarity on those topics and sometimes not. The problem comes when you allow your questions to override your faith.

Faith is to me at least, one of the most important parts of a healthy relationship with the Lord. Being able to trust in his word when nothing else makes sense, and being able to trust in his will when everything seems to be going against us. Because we can trust in the loving hand of the creator of all things, the one that knew us from our first moments and will know us till our last and forever more.

It’s important to be able to question the things in our lives, the things going well, the times where all hope seems lost, the parts of the word we find challenging, and the passages of the word that we may not think are all that hard. But there also needs to be an understanding that we as the people of God won’t have all the answers, and that’s okay. We are called to dig deeper into the word of the Lord, and so important to ask these questions about our faith, but that’s just it, we need to ask the questions without losing faith, there will be times where the Lord doesn’t tell us what we want to hear, or give us the things we want. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t there or isn’t looking out for you. It’s important to ask questions, but it’s just as important to keep strong in our faith and trust in the will of our Lord.

Lord, Thank you for your never-ending love, for your unfailing grace and how you turn all things in our lives towards you and your never-ending goodness. Allow us to question without being distant to you Lord and allow our faith to overpower any doubts we might have about your goodness and your love. In your mighty name, Amen.

Thank you for reading and may God bless you.
