Joshua 7:6-11  "Why Lord?"

Have you ever prayed a prayer like this title?  I'm sure we all have.  This type of prayer is honest for it is asking for an understanding of a difficult period in our life.  In the setting of this prayer is the fact Israel had sinned.  A lesson we all need to learn is that one sin or the sin of only one person can cause damage that cannot be repaired.  Also a reason this prayer was prayed was that Joshua and Israel became confident that they could win a victory without God.  The lesson for us is we always are to depend on the Lord in the small things as well as the big things.  So take all things to the Lord and ask for His help, His wisdom, His power so we do not need to pray, "Why Lord?"
