Why Me?

When everything's going smoothly in our lives and then all of a sudden, something devastating happens - our first thought is “Why Me? How could God allow this to happen?” It’s hard to imagine why bad things happen to good people but there are many different reasons. Sometimes it’s God’s punishment. The Bible says in Hebrews 12:5-6, “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.” Other times it is to perfect our characters or allow God’s power and glory to be revealed through us. John 9:3 says, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.” But not all trials are brought on by God - more often than not, it’s the enemy at work trying hard to discourage and separate us from our Best Friend Jesus. Satan is good at pushing all our buttons and he knows where we are weakest. There’s nothing he won’t do in order to accomplish his goal of getting us to turn on God. But don’t allow the enemy one moment to gloat! Instead of being angry and asking “Why me?” - remain steadfast in your faith in God for He will give you strength and comfort through every trial and tribulation.
