Most of us fall into the trap of wanting to tell God what to do, when to do it, how we like it and where we want it. Then when we don’t get our way we murmur and complain like the children of Israel. However, God realizes that no matter what He does, the human race just never seems to be happy or content. Some want it to rain, some want the sun to shine; we are always in need of something, yet even after He supplies our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus we are still not satisfied.
However, when our wants are not satisfied as a result of our possible greed and lust, when He does not answer our prayers because it does not line up with His will or plans for our life, we sometimes get upset and want to question Him. Yet, like He told Job in Job 38, who are we to question Him when our wisdom is foolishness to Him. Therefore, God wants to know where were we when He created the universe? He did not need our advice or counsel, and He never asked for our help.
Therefore, before we question God’s plans, will or timing, out if irritation or impatience, remember these scriptures: Isaiah 55:8-9, For His thoughts are not like ours, and our ways are not like His, as far as the heavens is from the earth, that’s how far God’s ways and thoughts are from ours. The next important scripture is Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.”
There are many more scriptures that allow us the privilege of relying on our Creator who as Psalm 91 says, is our refuge, strength, fortress and a present help in times of trouble, therefore if we abide and trust in Him there is no need to question Him. God is always an on time God and if you wait on Him you will mount up on wings like eagles, run and not get weary, walk and not faint. When you keep your mind on Him, He will keep you in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3), so there will be no need for questions, just praise and thanks.
When we renew our minds as Romans 12:2 suggests and not be conformed, but transformed, then we will never questions God’s decisions, nor try to arrogantly or ignorantly think for Him after He answers a few of our prayers. We can’t feel like we are entitled like king David did with Bathsheba, but as we see, God let Him know he should have asked first, not take.
