Are you looking for answers in the midst of difficult circumstances? Asking the questions, but not finding a logical response? More often than not, we must live with unanswered questions and trust God. Here’s what one of my professors at Wheaton College writes about suffering, mystery, and God. . .
“Suffering is sometimes a mystery. We must affirm both the mystery and God. The paradox remained, but now, at least, Job knew that it belonged there — that it is built into the moral and physical orders, and into the very nature of God as He has permitted us humans to perceive Him. In a world where the universal principle is cause/effect, the book of Job reminds us that the principle is a reflection of the mysterious, self-revealing God. It is subsumed under Him, however, and He cannot be subsumed under it. The God-speeches remind us that a Person, not a principle, is Lord.” — C. H. Bullock in “Introduction to the Old Testament Poetic Books”
Looking for answers? I’d encourage you to cease looking for answers, and instead look to THE ANSWER! A Person, not a principle. It is in God that we can trust regardless of our circumstances!
