Not Why, But How? Part 2
Don't miss out on Not Why, But How? Part 1
After we have grieved and asked why, we must ask how. How will God redeem this? How will God restore us? There is hope in this question. As I reflect on how, I climb out of the hole, not only thinking of how God will redeem this situation that got me in this hole, but I think of how He redeemed and restored ALL the difficult circumstances I faced before.
I challenge you, as you walk away from this devotional, to continue to reflect and grieve, but most importantly push into asking God how. I believe that God will reveal the answer to how, as you dive deep and ask Him. You might not know why, but I really truly believe God always shows us how. I want to leave you with this hope.
Today’s Bible Reading: Genesis 37-50
A Moment to reflect:
How do you see God in the midst of Joseph's circumstances? Even when it seems like God had forgotten about Joseph, how can you see God at work preparing Joseph for His good purposes?
What is something you learned/saw about the character of God in Gen. 37-50; how can this impact how you live out your circumstances today?
What area of your own heart do you need to challenge to reflect and grieve but to more importantly push into asking God how, rather than why?
