Convincing God He’s wrong

Have you ever try to do this? I’ve tried this numerous times especially when things aren’t really going the way they should in my life. We can all admit that at one point or the other, we have questioned the wisdom and authority of a powerful God. Throughout the Bible we see examples of great men and women who questioned God. Moses did at the burning bush, Abraham did it as well and of course even Peter did it. Trying to convince God He’s wrong has become the practice of people who just want to go at it alone.
I read a particular book a year ago that saved my life. It’s called Hinds feet on high places, by Hannah Hurnard. This book taught me that it’s ok to question God and to reason with Him. This book showed a loving relationship between the Shepherd and his sheep. Whenever we engage in a personal relationship with Christ, we begin a journey. A journey that isn’t easy, it’s a journey that will ultimately lead us to a higher place, but it’s a process of pruning, sifting and threshing. My favorite part of the book was when Much Afraid, the main character was led away from the high places to the desert. Oh when she saw this, she tried to convince the shepherd that this couldn’t be the way because it led away from the high places. Ironically, the way back to the high places was through the desert. In the desert she was shown what the people of God must go through in order to have an effective relationship with Christ. We go through stuff but we must endure, because it is a shaping process, a refining process if you will. I Pet 5:10 says..And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace Who imparts all blessing and favor, Who has called you to His own eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you. Wow, this sounds like a great reason to trust God…because we live in this world, we will always have trials, but Jesus promised to be with us. He’s just a prayer away today, no matter what you’re going through. The Bible says weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. You may be at your darkest hour right now, but remember..the darkest time in the night is just before daybreak….keep praying, continue to trust and watch my awesome, powerful God work it out for you. If you need prayer, please email us. God Bless.
