Suffering seems to be woven into the very fabric of humanity, and it is unavoidable as pain or death. Following on the heels of the suffering of grief and loss is the question…WHY?
But may I remind you…when you don’t have an ANSWER you have an ANCHOR, (His Word). Hebrews 6:19…”which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil.” God doesn’t always explain His ways, remember the Bible says we walk by FAITH and not by EXPLANATION!
Highway Departments check commercial vehicles for maximum loads. Cargo bearing ships have depth lines. Our Lord guarantees there will be no overload of testing beyond which we are able to bear. Greif comes unannounced and uninvited, death, the dictator came, saw, and conquered. He always does. But his conquering is not forever.
If God is anywhere, He has to be God in the face of death. Like Job…We lose the address of God…Job cried out these words; “O that I knew where I might find Him.” While Job could not locate God, God knew where Job was!
