Throughout the Bible, God is questioned. We can see throughout Psalms, God is questioned repeatedly. The biggest difference between how we’re questioning Him is this: Are we questioning earnestly, or are we questioning God’s goodness?
In questioning Him, we must already believe in Him and have faith in Him. It’s harmless to ask God things like, “Why did this happen to me?”, “What is the purpose of this?”, or “What do you want me to do next?” These types of questions don’t put God Himself to question but His purpose- His plans (Hebrews 11:6).
