Romans 9:20 – Asking and Questioning

Romans 9:20
 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?

Philippians 4:6-7
 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

-Life’s many trials bring with them hard questions; questions that can be difficult to even speak much less demand an answer. While I would advise against questioning God, at the same time I would highly encourage you to take your questions to God.  God alone possesses the answers to all our questions and even in cases where He doesn’t share the answers for which we are looking, He is also the only one who can provide peace in the face of uncertainty.  The line between asking God and questioning God is small but infinitely important.  To question God is to doubt His power and ability; to ask God is too have faith that He is God, but at the same time recognize that our meager faith needs His special attention.
