But This I Know…

Posted on February 21, 2023 by Elizabeth Welte in Victory Call

I have been a Biblical Counselor for 25 years.  In my experience personally and professionally we often want to get to the bottom of our problems by understanding “WHY.”

Why do I get angry …?
Why am I afraid ….?
Why do I yell…?
Why do I withdraw …?
Why do I avoid…?”
Why do I isolate…?
Why am I depressed…?
Why am I anxious…?
Why am I unhappy..?
Why do I overeat…?
Why do I …?


In my 25 years of counseling I have witnessed this over and over …
1.    Often knowing why doesn’t result in healing.
2.    Sometimes we just don’t know why.

But this I know …

Jesus loves us.  Jesus died for us.  Jesus forgives us.  Jesus is our all in all.

We can trust Him with the whys of our life and step out in obedience even if we never understand why we struggle with what we struggle with.

We may never know why but we know WHO and He calls us to obedience – regardless. Not only that, but the obedience He commands He also empowers us to accomplish with an obedience of faith.

I needed this reminder today – I hope it is a helpful reminder to you today as well.
