Cannot Understand // Ecclesiastes 11:5

2188_640x640

I’m going to start this post by simply stating one truth; YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND GOD’S WAYS AND YOU NEVER WILL. Often times I see people getting so frustrated trying to figure out why certain things are happening, the purpose, etc… Instead of just BEING in complete trust with God, we try to get peace by our own understanding.  The word of God clearly tells us that Jesus is to be our peace. Trusting in Him and the finished work of the cross. NOWHERE in the word does it say that we should thrive to seek to understand why certain things are happening in all of the areas of our lives, but actually the opposite. The word tells us to rest in Him and trust in Him. Yes, God will give us wisdom and so much more, but often times that wisdom from the Lord will point us back to trusting in who He is…

I gave this example the other day to explain what trusting God is like and what it is NOT like:
When we are in a relationship with someone it would be silly to say we trust them, but have a tracker on their phone, want to know where they are at every moment of the day, to be constantly calling and checking on them, to be super paranoid about if they are doing what’s best for the relationship, etc… Make sense?
In a GOOD relationship where trust is at the center, we don’t need to be constantly checking on them. We have trust and faith that they care & love for us and would never do anything to hurt us. We have trust in them that we are on their mind, and that they care for us. We have trust & faith they will come home at the end of the day, or that they will let us know when they make it home safely. When we wake up in the morning we know that if they haven’t said “Good morning” that they are asleep, etc… Things like that.

But often times with God we are more so like the super paranoid spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend. We pray and say we trust God but deep down we don’t. We cannot simply lay something down at the altar without being anxious, and constantly running back to the cross to check on that “thing” we left there. We are constantly asking for explanations, making demands, etc… Where as we should have the faith to pray for things, to love God, to talk with God, etc.. To simply just BE a child of God. To know that when we pray, that He is working it all out on His timing and that it’s His will, not ours.

Its time as believers that we start truly trusting in our loving, loyal, faithful Father. The person who paid the ULTIMATE price JUST because He wanted us. Trust in Him. Trust in His plan. He is working it all out whether we see it or not…

Today’s meditation verse: Proverbs 5:21 “For your ways are in full view of the Lord, and He examines all your paths.”

Love wins… Grace wins… Just BE…
