Wrong To Question God
He(God) also said, YOU are but Clay, I AM THE POTTER, How can the Clay ASK the Potter(God)"WHY has't thou made me thus"?
THOSE are God's word's...
You err in your thought's of "?'ing"
God of the "WHY'S" of this World...
Don't concern yourselve's with the why's & things of this world, We are NOT of this place and NOT until Rev. 20 is fulfilled and the New Jerusalem descends from Heaven unto the earth and Man & God dwell with one another forever & ever & ever,
Praise God what the Lord went to go build has been built, Not that I've actually seen it mind you,It's just a feelin...

No it's not wrong to question God...He said..let us reason TOGETHER. He wants you to come to Him and ask questions...that's how we learn..AND build a personal relationship.
Don't be afraid..God CAN take anything we throw at HIM...He knows our heart.
Now, that doesn't mean to curse Him....but God CAN take your anger.
Scripture...Be angry and Sin not...
Let us reason together
Come BOLDLY to the Throne of Grace to FIND ...
Jesus SUFFERED to be a faithful High Priest to US when WE go through suffering, etc.
But in the end...we do find ourselves saying...NEVER THE LESS...not my will, but thine be done!!!!
It's at that moment of surrender we find peace that surpasses all understanding.

If something bad happens in our lives, it is wrong to lose our trust and lose our faith in God. However it is not wrong to ask a question to God.

The Bible is full of prophets communicating with God on all levels. God is still open to this today. However, don't ever fly in His face. Paul warned us about that. Jeremiah was a great man of God the most honest with his feelings. I am pretty good about that myself.

Yes, you can question God in a reverent and honorable way. We should always be open and honest with God. Questions are allowed. How else are you going to form a right relationship with Him? What kind of relationship would that be if we married someone and could not ask them any questions? That marriage would be doomed from the start. I ask questions because I want to get closer to God and know His ways better. We are to always approach Him in a childlike and honest way. Children ask lots of questions.

Thanks to everyone and God bless you all for the Godly encouragement. Right now, there are many storms on my spiritual journey. But I know that God is carrying me because there are only one set of footprints..I care about everyone of you. and I thank God that through CN, I have met other brothers and sisters in Christ. But I thank God most of all for His love that is flowing through you all. Again, thank you, and a special thanks to you Trey, dear brother in Christ. Amen!

Sometimes God allows bad things to happen to us. We should not question him. Remember Job.
Isa 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
I think about Paul's thorn in the flesh:
2co 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

I think about what our Lord said:
Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
I also remember how He must have suffered daily.
Lu 9:58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
Bless you. Your one of my favorites.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
Once You have given us Your very own comfort, we can minister this to help any person in "any trouble" > we have power to help ANY person, then.

"For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin." (Hebrews 4:15)
Jesus went through what we go through, here on earth, Cynthia, so He can feel for us and minister to us what helped Him get through. In His priesthood (1 Peter 2:1-9), we have to go through these things so we can understand what others are going through and minister to them how God helps us.

No it is not wrong. If you will look through the Bible don't forget the old Testament and oh by the way it is Jesus too, you will find God's people always questioning Him. He is use to it. However, there is a right way and a wrong way. And if you don't know, God will be more than happy to teach you. A few bumps on the head will do it.

It depends on how you question God. If you ask God, why he healed that person knowing their sinful life? To me that would be crossing the line. But if you question God about someone dying, I think is okay. I asked God why he didn't heal my mom and let her die? Because I didn't understand it. In about 5 months he gave me an answer. He told me that she ran her race, she fought a good fight and she is ready to come home.

Is.1:18. Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord.
Our relationship with the Lord is pictured as a husband and wife relationship. It wouldn't even be fair to think that we couldn't communicate with our spouse about matters in our lives would it?

Cynthia:"use all these trials and tribulations as stepping stones to perfection"Consider Lazarus the Beggar at the gates of Jherico (I believe)I hear the desperate plea as I am sure God does. He has given you,the Faith Trust & tennasity to stay the course He perscribed.The only thing that can cause you to lose it is despair,that will mar your Perfection.My Prayers are with youGod Bless.Hang in there.
