Questions for God

To read the Bible in a year, read Job 10–12.
Do you have questions for God? Job did. “I will say to God, ‘Do not condemn me; show me why You contend with me. Does it seem good to You that You should oppress, that You should despise the work of Your hands, and smile on the counsel of the wicked?’” (Job 10:2, 3). Job questioned whether God viewed Job as a man rather than as God should, “Do You have eyes of flesh? Or do You see as man sees? Are Your days like the days of a mortal man? Are Your years like the days of a mighty man, that You should seek for my iniquity and search out my sin, although You know that I am not wicked, and there is no one who can deliver from Your hand?” (Job 10:4–7).
Do you have questions for God? Ask Him, but do not challenge Him as though He is accountable to you. In your questioning, remember who is the Creator and who is the creature.
