Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God. Isaiah 50:10
Excerpt from the blog waaaay back in 2009 (https://obtainingmercy.com/2009/07/22/hope-in-his-help/):
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 is still on the throne. Even in the dark, we can trust Him to do His best for us in every situation.
