Asking God Why? When? Where? And How?
Acts 9:13-16 (KJB) Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: 14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: 16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.
Ananias was being asked to take a giant step forward on feet of faith.
He asked God why.
I have asked God why and likely you have too.
We often desire to know all the details of any situation at hand. We hear “spiritual marching orders” God has given us and all we really need to do is move forward in the direction God is sending us. We should immediately do an “about face” and march straight ahead on the fuel of faith. We should allow God to work in the details of the situation at hand.
However, obedience is often much easier talked about than done. In our flesh we desire to know and participate in every aspect of our lives instead of trusting God to work miracles in our circumstances.
