Why Me, Lord?

Do you ever ask God, “why me?”

Yes, I know, sometimes we say, “why me, Lord?” when troubles and trials come to our lives. But I mean when good things happen. Do you ever ask, “Why did you bless me, Lord?” I do. “Why did you give me this idea, Lord? I already have enough work to do. Why is this latest idea so insistent in my brain? Why did you give me this opportunity? Why have circumstances turned out the way they have for good in my life?”

Deuteronomy 7: 7-8. The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the LORD loved you.

Why does He love us? Why does He love me & bless me so much? Why have I been blessed with good things and success?  Certainly not to give me a big head. Certainly not because of my own worth. No! It’s because of His work!

Deuteronomy 4:5-8. “Surely I have taught you statutes and judgments, just as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should act according to them in the land which you go to possess. Therefore be careful to observe them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes, and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’ “For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the LORD our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him?And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you this day?

Do you ask the same questions? Maybe you should. Listen to The Chosen: Not a Big Head, But a Big Heart. And reference this study guide. Consider the blessings YOU’VE been given. Are you using them to be a blessing to others?
