Have You Ever Asked God, "Why Is My Own Case Different?"

Have you ever asked God why of all my peers, I'm the only orphan? It's only my parents that had to die and leave me alone in this wicked world. Esther 2:7

Well maybe it's because you're an Esther that God wants to get married to a king who ruled the world and so He could make you become a very powerful queen whom He's use you to preserve the lives and posterity of His people Israel. Esther 7.

Have you ever asked God, "why of all my siblings, I am the one that would be the illegitimate child and be called a 'bastard', and cast out of my father's house?" Judges 11:1-3

Well maybe, you're a Jephthah God intends to use you as an example, by making you not just the leader of your brethren, but also that of a great nation and His people Israel, to show that regardless of how you came about into this world, whether illegitimately or not, that the most important thing is that you humbled yourself before Him, and commit your life and affairs to Him, so He can make you to become the best you could possibly be in life and to achieve the purpose for which you were born. Judges 11

Have you ever asked God, "what have I done wrong?" "Why am I being hated so much by all my brethren, that they are determined to kill me?" Genesis 37:20

Well maybe you're a Joseph and the immense hatred of your brothers toward you, is part of His plan to bring to fulfillment the dreams He's given you of becoming a king and also to achieve His plan of using you to preserve the posterity of the human race, including those of your brothers and family members, so they wouldn't go into extinction during impending gruesome famine that would ravage the land. Genesis 41, 42.

Have you asked God, why is it me that had to be barren among my mates, that makes me reproached by men?

Well, it could be because you're an Hannah that God doesn't want to give birth to just another child but a special one and one in a million, that would become a seer at a time when it was said that the Word from the Lord was scarce, and whom the Lord would make to become the last Judge of His people Israel. Samuel 1, 3.

Or perhaps a Sarah through whose son God intends to establish His covenant with Abraham, that the whole world would be blessed through Him, and through whose lineage the Messiah would emerge. Genesis 17:19; 21:2-7

Or probably an Elizabeth who God intends to give birth to the forerunner to the Messiah, the King of king and Lord of lords, the Alpha and Omega, the only begotten Son of God, who God would use to prepare His way, and make His paths straight, who would become, one of, if not the greatest of anyone born of a woman before the coming of Christ. Luke 1:7, 57-58.

Have you ever asked God, "why me, that has served you faithfully, and ensured that I adhere to Your Ways and Word, that this calamity has befallen, that I have become an embodiment of reproach to men and being mocked by the wicked and those who have no regard for the things of God?" Job 1:13-22; Job 2:7-13

Well, just maybe, you're righteous Job, and God wants to use you to prove to the devil that a man's love for God could be hinged on God alone and not what God gives to him or does for Him. And after He has used your example to shame the devil and put him in his rightful place, you'd be rewarded double for all your trouble, and everything the devil stole from you, you would recover all and be fully restored back, so that your latter days shall be greater than your former. Job 1:6-12; 1-7; 42:11.

God bless.

Re: Have You Ever Asked God, "Why Is My Own Case Different?" by jesusjnr2020(m): 8:00am On Nov 07, 2021
I don't know about you, but I've had been through many situations that had made me ask God why my case is different, and why He treats me differently from others. The things He would allow others get away with as if it's no big deal, in my own case it would become a big deal, as He wouldn't spare me, but ensure that i fully paid and am punished for it.

But when It comes to the benefits or gifts, and rewarding me for what I do or get right, it turns to the exact opposite. God becomes as sparing as possible, that even those He treats with a soft hand and not a hard one like myself, have been often observed to yet get benefits and rewards from God much quickly and easily that It is with me.

I even observed some difference with how God dealt with me from some of the men that walked with Him in the Bible, that I would a times use them as example to illustrate this in my prayer to Him. For instance, I would speak about Moses, and tell to deal with me as He did with Moses, but He'd tell me that I'm not Moses. When I say Abraham, he'd say the same thing. Even the apostles who I happen to be in the same era of the Kingdom of God with, it would still be the same response.

It was something that really confused me, as I just couldn't understand why, but I as kept pondering on this things on a certain day, I suddenly found myself walking in the middle of a big congregation. People were sat to the left and right of me, but on the stage which was in front of me, I saw a throne, the throne was so gigantic, heavenly and glorious.

It appeared everlasting as it covered the whole stage, from top to bottom and from right to left, the people who sat there seemed like dust ants before the throne. It was a really glorious sight, and there seemed to be a sort of cloudy mist that hovered around the throne, which made it difficult for me to clearly see Who was seated on the throne, but I think i could see part of the legs of the Person, around the knee part that folded on the seat, which was clothed in a white robe.

Meanwhile, as i was walking down the isle, being ushered by angels, I suppose, to where I would be seated, we came to the second row, and my head turned to the left, and i set my eyes on one of the apostles, the one who many Christians view as the greatest of them all, seated there. I don't know exactly why that had to catch my eye and why i was made to see that, but I have a feeling it was deliberate.

I think while i was still looking in his direction, i went past that row as I was being ushered to the front row. And as I had taken a left turn, I suppose, to where I would be seated, that was when I realized that it was a dream or trance, as I came back to myself. It was really brief though, but it seemed to bear much significance.

So it appeared that was God's response to my question, as to, why my case was different and why He was treating me differently from others. It was because He was preparing me for the front row.

I can remember the place where it was said that the mum of 2 of the disciples of Jesus, had come to Him and asked Him to grant them that they sat at His left and right when He comes in His kingdom, but Jesus said that they didn't know what they asked for, because there was a very high price to pay, to be granted that request. Moreover, that it wasn't His to give, "but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father." Matthew 20:23

Therefore it's not up to men to determine where any man sits in the kingdom of God, but up to God and God alone, and He's the One that's preparing me to be seated in the front row in His Kingdom, which comes with a very high price. That's the reason He's treating me differently from other men and why my case is different.

The irony of this is that what God is doing is actually an answer to my prayers, because I am the one that keeps asking Him to take me through whatever I needed to go through to becomes everything and nothing short of what He desires for me to be. I asked Him not to spare me just as He did for His Son, Jesus, because I know it wasn't easy for Him but He did what He had to do for the good of His Son, so thay He should do likewise for me.

But when He begins to answer my prayers, I would start crying, lol, like "why Lord?" That's why I ask Him for the grace to be able to go through what I needed to go through to become all He deserved for me to be for His Own glory, because I know that at the end of it all, I would be grateful to Him, because I would be able to see the distinctive results of why He treated me differently and that it was for my own good.

God bless.

The world is random. shit happens to everyone at varying degrees. we look for patterns and wish the randomness of the world can be stopped in our case alone so we created God and assumed talking to him would make less shit and randomness befall us compared to those who don't but it doesn't work. we still fall sick on average like the heathens, we still struggle to get jobs just like heathens we still struggle to set up businesses that most times eventually fail just like the heathens. we die too just like heathens.

Our cases aren't different, we're all in this shit together and we should just embrace the randomness of the world rather than think some imaginary hand would interfere and make your life less random.

Just do your own part and God would certainly do His.

As long as you don't leave His track, you'd be fine.

You may not understand what He's doing, but He knows what He's doing and it's for your own good.

When you get to see the results of what He's doing, you'd appreciate Him for it.

God bless.

Asking God such question make no sense.

God is the master planner, he already knew what you’d become even before you were born so it’s not a mistake.

He chose to let the likes of Dangote, Adenuga, Folorunso, Otedola and co to be super rich and some live from hand to mouth.

You can’t question God, you can only ask for TWO things which are MERCY and GRACE

It’s in our human nature to question everything but then are you mentally taking in what you’re thinking about?
We usually focus on God when things are going bad and not Vice versa
Everyday I question the universe around me, yes I question God.

Or maybe life is just happening and there is no special reason attached to it.
Or maybe because you are not in tune with God. You never ask for help and directions till you are hooked and out of options.
Or maybe he's leading you to the south but you'll rather go north

Even jesus, which the confused Christians took as god. ask the ALMIGHTY GOD "why" this show biblically how poor god jesus is and lack of faith on his part.
Mathew 27 vs 46:
About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
This is a clear proof where an inferior mini god jesus been forsaken by SUPERIOR ALMIGHTY GOD biblically but christianity are naturally blind to see the truth from their own bible.
