Why me? “Why me?” It’s so natural to assume the “why me” position when bad things happen beyond our control. After the “why me” we continue down the slippery slope of self-interest and find ourselves at the precipice of fairness. “It just isn’t fair!”
Think about it. Does “Why me” always result in “don’t blame me!” We take ourselves out of the game and are content to sit it out, sulk and watch things happen without us.
God’s Word tells us: “He (Moses) asked the LORD, “Why have you brought this trouble on your servant? What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me?” (Numbers 11:11).
“Why me?” “Why not?” You are just as convenient to God through which to do His bidding as anyone else. The next time you’re tempted to ask “why me,” remember this: when injustice happens, seek first to make sure that others are protected from it and not yourself. That way there is no room for blame and plenty of room for solutions.
“Heavenly Father, I praise You in the midst of the darkness, You are mighty and powerful. I trust Your Holy presence to guide and correct me in all that I do. Whatever trouble comes my way, make me fully equipped with Your armor to emerge from the battle, victorious. In Jesus name Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
