One of the things I love about Paul is that he is not afraid to ask stupid questions. Too often, we don’t do this. We go along. We feel lost, we feel weak, we feel alone, and we just accept it.
But, Paul shows us it is OK to ask questions and it is equally OK to answer them.
Why would God leave me all alone to face this? He didn’t, He is with you and already has the solution.
But what about the evil in the world? God is greater
What about my life? God is working for your good
How do I not be afraid? Trust in God
We know the answers. We just don’t ask the questions.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? — The truth
If God is for us, who can be against us? — No one
How will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things? — He will give us all things
Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? — It is not possible except as a lie
It is God who justifies; who then is the one who condemns? — No one
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? — No one
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword separate us from the love of Christ? – No
I struggle with the idea that God will give us “all things”. I know He is capable, but I often only ask for the bare minimum. Bread, not a banquet. It is encouraging to know where Christ is now.
