TOPIC: THE ‘WHY?’ PEOPLE

READ: Proverbs 3:1-7; 20:24

Proverbs 3:1-7 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

Proverbs 20:24 Man’s goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way?

MEMORISE: A man’s steps are of the Lord; how then can a man understand his own way? (Proverbs 20:24)

EXPOSITION
It is characteristic of every man to want to know why things happen. It is therefore not out of place to say we are ‘Why?’ people. The ‘Why?’ people ask various ‘Why?’ questions: Why me? Why that? Why this? Why am I…? etc. NLT puts today’s scripture to memorise as ‘the Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?’ This makes the meaning of ‘why people’ clearer.

Why try to know why? We want to know why some things are happening to us. We try to know why we are as we are. It is not as if it is bad to ask ‘Why?’, but it is important to know that whether we know why or not, our lives are in the hands of God and He orders them towards a glorious end.

The heart of a king is in the hands of God. Our Creator has the manual of our lives. We cannot really understand all that He is graciously doing to fulfil His purpose through, and in our lives. We need God to help us discover and discharge our responsibilities. After these, leave the rest unto the waiting and willing God.

SOLUTION: Live your life always like the clay in the potter’s hands. God should be given the privilege of doing to you as He so desires, in accordance with His eternal programme. Mind you, His thought toward you is of good. He has the best of ideas on how to better your lot. He works, and makes everything work for your good. Note that there is no amount of agitations, worries and struggling that can change what God already planned for you. Don’t ask ‘Why?’; ask ‘What?’ (cf. Acts 2:37).
