Why? – a question we all ask

“Lord, Your Name and Renown are the desire of our hearts” (Isaiah 26:8).


the-big-questions-quoteSome 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?”
