O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
There will be things in our lives that we do not understand. In fact, we may go to our grave having never fully grasped what God was doing in a certain situation in our life.
We must, however, remember that God's wisdom and knowledge are so deep that we cannot know them. We could search our entire lives and never understand His ways.
He is that much greater than we are.
So why is it that we try to tell God how He should do a thing?
I find myself constantly informing God of situations that need His intervention. Or I go to Him in prayer, only to begin praying out my plan for how He could solve a problem.
What in the world am I thinking?
Ah…maybe that's the problem: I am only "in the world". I am human. I am not divine. I do not have the tiniest inkling of the understanding and wisdom that God has.
Let's have the faith to stop micromanaging God. Just let Him take care for things. Take our hands off the situation, and with a heart full of hope in His promises, give it to our awesome God.
He has promised that He will work it to our good. Allow this trial to work out a greater faith and trust in your heart as well.
God, help us to leave it in Your hands. Amen.
