Day 8

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’  Acts 17:26-28 CEB

One of my favorite curious questions is, “WHY?”  

When I find an answer to a “WHY” question, I usually pull out one of my notebooks where I keep answers to questions and take notes.  This verse resulted in a ton of note taking.  Here’s the answer to the “WHY”…

God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him…

So whatever questions you may have about life, faith, yourself, God…here’s an answer to the question, “Why God?”  

His answer:  “So that you would seek me and perhaps reach out to me and find me.”

What if you applied that answer to some of your toughest questions today and see where it leads?
