The other day I was out fishing. I had my crawler on the hook and the bobber on the line. I was fully expecting to catch blue gill and or perhaps a little bass. What I didn\u2019t expect was for my pole to bend over as something grasped the hook and ran off. I started to reel and saw a long shape that I assumed from a quick glance to be a pike. I yelled over to my fishing partner to grab the net. Determined to stay in the water, the lengthy creature saw the net and jetted away in the opposite direction. I reeled him in a bit more and my friend scooped him up in the net! The pike \u2026 wait \u2026 that\u2019s not a pike!? That\u2019s the weirdest looking thing I\u2019ve ever seen. After untangling him from the net and working the hook out from between his miniscule teeth I snapped a quick shot of the 2-foot-long creature with my phone and sent it off to someone I was certain could identify this strange site. He soon replied to my \u201cWhat is it?\u201d text with this statement: \u201cLooks like a dogfish, which should have a long dorsal fin extend almost to tail." \u00a0We looked again and so it did. We had caught one of the two dogfish we would capture that night. There are many times in life we have questions, \u201cWhy is this happening?," \u201cWhy am I here?\u201d, \u201cWhat did I do to deserve this?," \u201cHow can I regain my joy?\u201d, etc. Life is full of difficult circumstances and hard questions and it would be great to just text God, \u201cWhat\u2019s going on?\u201d and have Him reply back, but life doesn\u2019t work that way. Many times when we of hear of someone else\u2019s circumstance we throw out a quick verse in a vain attempt to squelch all questions and doubt, but we normally end up causing disdain toward ourselves and God for pat answers that do not satisfy. So what is the answer? I think we need to look to God. We can\u2019t text Him, but we can find some of His answers in His Word. For example, Job struggled with answers to his dilemma. He had no idea why he was going through his difficult circumstances \u2013 losing all his children, his home, his wealth and even his health. And, frankly, after reading Job, I don\u2019t fully understand why God allowed it either. But Job gives some insight. It isn\u2019t about answering all of our questions to our own satisfaction, but revealing a God that is so much greater than ourselves that we simply must trust Him. After his questioning and doubt and hearing from God, Job says this, \u201cSurely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.\u201d Job 42:3 Job thought he knew what God should have done, but he didn\u2019t really have all the information nor all the answers. Even as he made that statement he didn\u2019t know any more about why he suffered than he did at the beginning of the book. All he knew was the same thing Jeremiah says in Jeremiah 10:6-7, \u201cNo one is like you, O LORD; You are great, and Your name is mighty in power. Who should not revere You, O King of the nations? This is your due.\u201d I don\u2019t have all the answers to your questions nor mine. I can only bring you and myself before a God so great and so powerful and also so merciful that, even when we have no idea why life is collapsing, you and I can place our complete trust in Him.
