“Lord, Your Name and Renown are the desire of our hearts” (Isaiah 26:8).
Some things defy explanation.
Yet we still ask “Why?”
It’s a question we feel compelled to ask. One that goes beyond the public façade we put on for others.
It looks for reasons, for purposes, for motives. Why? is a question that demands an explanation for the reason things are as they are.
- “Why?” was a question God asked in the earliest days of human history. To Cain—“Why are you angry?” To Abraham—“Why did Sarah laugh?”
- Moses asked, “Why is the bush not burned up?”
- Nathan asked David, “Why have you despised the word of the Lord?”
- Job asked, “Why did I not die at birth?”
- Jesus repeatedly asked, “Why are you anxious?” “Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye?” “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord’ and do not do what I say?” “Why do you not believe me?” “Why have you forsaken me?”
