I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:1-3
Several times, people ask this very rhetoric question which implies that God has either abandoned them or that He no longer cares. In challenging situations they ask, God why me? In depressing times they ask God why me? Hardly do these set of persons ask God Why me? when they swim in successes and abounds in His goodness.
Indisputably, challenges and trials confront us in life. It is of the mercies of God that you and I are not consumed in them, for God’s love for us is new each passing day. During overwhelming times, God expects us to understand that, it is not of him that wills, nor of Him that runs, but of God that shows mercy. – Romans 9:16
Have you ever asked God why me? – For making you see a new day. Have you asked Him, God why me? – that you are not in prison (many people are there without committing any crime) Have you asked God why me? – for healing you of illnesses that killed other persons. Have you asked God why me? – For rescuing you from unseen havoc that consumed other persons. Have you asked God why me? That you can see with your eyes, walk with your legs, reason rightly, eat normal food which several other persons do not have.
If you can begin to ask God why me? in a positive manner, that is, remembering and acknowledging God’s goodness, it will amaze you what God did, does and is doing in your life. For once, ignore whatever it is that is keeping you awake through the night and start celebrating the faithfulness of God all around you. By so doing, you will develop an attitude of thanksgiving to God, and in return, He will melt off all your problems.
