“God does what He wants to do and sometimes I don’t get it.”
To be honest that sums up the way I feel a lot of times. Right now there are thousands of dead and missing in
Believe you me; God is aware of what is happening in
What arrogance there is in that way of thinking! If God’s ways are not higher than my ways; if His thoughts are not higher than my thoughts… then He is not worth worshipping. Praise God that He is greater and more in control than I could ever imagine. Sometimes I just have to accept that I don’t understand “His ways.” That usually happens in life when we don’t have the big picture.
Job didn’t have the big picture and he wrestled with it (Job 21). Job’s friends didn’t have the big picture but that just tried to fill in the missing scenes for themselves from what they believed about God (Job 22). How about you? How big is your God? How wise is your God? How loving is He? I pray that you understand Him as bigger, wiser and more loving than you; and therefore you can rest in knowing that, just like in Job’s day, He’s got the whole world in his hands.
