We Have No Authority To Question God’s Decisions

Question 1908753421

Sometimes I believe that many of us think that we have the authority to question any decisions that God make, irrespective of what those decisions are.

God told us in Jeremiah 29 verse 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. God knows our dreams, but we do not know his and will never know what he thinks. So to believe we can question our Creator is disrespectful.

The book of Romans 9 verse 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that created it, Why hast thou made me thus? Here again, we are warned not to wonder or question God’s abilities.

1 Corinthians 2 verse16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the account of Christ.

Hebrews 4 verse16 Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 11 verse 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Ephesians 2 verse10 For we are his craft, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

2 Thessalonians 3 verse 6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

God not only has the authority but right to question us, give us instructions, command us to do his bidding. We have the right to pray, ask his forgiveness, preach his words, obey his teachings, but certainly not to question his works or creation.
