There are things that happen in our lives and in this world that seem unfair, that we don’t understand, that are horrific, that make no sense in our brains, in our eyes or in our hearts. We throw God out of our schools and then wonder why He won’t help us. We cling to our vices and then look to heaven, wondering, asking…Why?
Who are we to approach a sovereign God, asking Him to explain Himself? We are the creation…He is the Creator. God offers us unconditional love…He asks only for unconditional faith in return.
God owes us nothing, yet has given us everything. He asks us to trust Him, to have faith in Him. We barely do that. He gives us a free will to choose to love Him…to trust Him…to believe Him by faith…He is waiting still.
We don’t need to be questioning God…we need to be questioning ourselves. We don’t need to be standing up asking for justice, we need to be on our knees asking for mercy. God hasn’t failed…we have; as individuals, as a society and as a nation.
Suddenly they came upon two blind men sitting alongside the road. When they heard it was Jesus passing, they cried out, “Master, have mercy on us! Mercy, Son of David!”The crowd tried to hush them up, but they got all the louder, crying, “Master, have mercy on us! Mercy, Son of David!” (Matthew 20:30-31 The Message)
