But why?


When children are small, the number 1 question asked is “Why?” Somehow in asking the question, they feel that a rational conversation (from their perspective) will ensue and that the parents will abruptly change their minds. The LAST response they want to hear is “because I said so”! Unfortunately, that is the correct response because their immature minds lack the ability to understand the reason. Imagine how God feels about us when we ask the same question. Consider some of His commands:

1. Keep my laws in your minds and obey them without hesitation.

Lev. 22:31-33 “Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them:”

-BUT WHY?

“I am the LORD.”

2. Treat my name with utmost reverence.

“Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel:”

-BUT WHY?

“I am the LORD”

3. Remember my works done on your behalf.

“I am the Lord which hallow you, That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God:”

-BUT WHY?

“I am the LORD.”

LESSON - Not only do we NOT have the right to know all that God is doing, we simply would lack the ability to understand His ways even if He were to inform us. Life would be much easier and less stressful if we would simply remember the only answer we need...I am the Lord!
