That You Would Know…

A friend of mine, who’s going through something difficult, asked me the other day why it was happening to her.  “Why is God doing this?” she said. 

It’s a two-part answer.  First, we can’t say which things in life are literally caused by God.  We live in a fallen world, populated by people with free will.  Some things just happen, though we can be sure God will turn all things for good in the lives of those who are His. 

Other things, though, are His works.  In which case it’s fair to ask why.  So here are some possible answers…


that you would know that He is the Lord

Exodus 7:17


that you would know the certainty

of those things in which you were instructed

Luke 1:4


that you might know that the Lord Himself is God;

there is no other besides Him

Deuteronomy 4:35


that you might know the righteousness of the Lord

Micah 6:5


that you might know the way by which you must go

Joshua 3:4


that you would know that He, the Lord,

is your Savior and your Redeemer

Isaiah 60:16


that you would know that the battle is the Lord’s

1 Samuel 17:47


Take your pick.  🙂
