Why worry about the whys and the wherefores?

Does it really require “blind faith” to walk in obedience to God? Or is it not reasonable for any rational human being to desire knowledge, and inquire about all of the underlying causes? As creatures of logic, would we not better serve God if we understood as He does, and knew in advance, the rationale for a course of action?

The serpent, that old deceiver, reasoned with Eve and revealed to her the rationale for God’s instruction. Eve, being distracted by the craftiness of the serpent’s whys and wherefores, lost sight of God’s word and caved-in to her desires. Adam was soon to follow, triggering the fall of humanity.

How many times have we heard the call of God, only to get bogged down with myriads of whys and wherefores? As a result, we then miss God’s call because we did not place our trust in Him by exercising the faith required to fulfill His will.

We should walk by faith and not by sight. As we know that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. By the same token, it is impossible to please God without faith, because anyone who would worship God must believe that he is and that he rewards those who earnestly desire him.

Walk by faith my friend; Walk Good!

Inspired by 2 Corinthians 5: 7, Hebrews 11:1 & 6
