I will never understand.
For me, one of the keys to having peace and contentment is realizing that there will be things in this crazy world that I will never understand. There are “things too wonderful for me to know” which is how Job described it at the end of his story in the Bible.
Remembering truths which are very clear and have been etched into my soul by the Holy Spirit helps me be okay about the mysteries that are beyond the ability of my 3.5 pound brain to comprehend.
Here are some of the truths that I review in my mind when I start to worry or doubt or question –
God is good, all the time.
God is all-powerful – nothing is impossible for him.
God is a perfect Father who loves me with a perfect love. He is always walking beside me.
God is working all things out for my good. He wants the best for me.
God’s timing is perfect.
Being confident of these truths, I know the best response to whatever happens to me is to trust God. I can ask ‘Why?’ and God is patient with me, but there is wisdom in making trust my first response, not questions.
I have discovered that my life stays more closely aligned with God when I automatically and genuinely trust him with everything – because there is so much that I will never understand.
I trust you, Abba Father.
