There will be times in our lives when God will put us on a "need to know" basis.
Maybe you lost your job, your marriage is falling apart, or a child is going down the wrong path in life. Or maybe, a friend or family member has just been diagnosed with cancer or suddenly dies.
These are the times when we tend to look to God for answers. However, sometimes the only answer we receive is none at all.
Does that mean that our Lord doesn't care what we are going through? Absolutely not. In fact, by leaving heaven and becoming man, Jesus knows "exactly" how we feel during these times.
What it does mean, is that God wants us to trust Him and know that this is happening for a reason (even when we can't possibly understand how).
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." (Proverbs 3:5)
God understands when you don't. And, most importantly, He loves you.
Rest in His promises and assurances that this too shall pass, and He'll use this suffering for some kind of good in the end.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
Enjoy the blessings that the Lord provides you while you can, as you never know when they'll be gone.
Praise His name at all times and in all circumstances, as this life is only the beginning, and there is so much more awaiting us when our Savior comes again.
"Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later." (Romans 8:28)
