Many times in our life this side of heaven, we witness events or situations that we simply cannot understand. From our mortal point of view, we can see no possible way that they are just or fair nor can we see how God could possible work them for our good or indeed any good. This verse has been of great comfort to me at such times. It reminds me that it is not part of God's plan that I understand everything in this life. God does not expect that of me. Even the apostle Paul who himself had such great revelation from God, told us that his knowledge was only partial and He saw but dimly (1 Corinthians 13:9,12). Should we expect more? Instead, God asks us to trust Him while at the same time assuring us that His ways are far beyond anything we could imagine. As far as heaven is above earth. Hallelujah!
Prayer for today: Father God, we love You and ask for faith to trust You in all things. Remind us of Your sovereignty and Your goodness that we could be confident that even the things we cannot understand are safe in Your care. We ask in Jesus' name. AMEN!
Confession for today: I confess that my God is for me and worthy of not just my praise and adoration, but of my trust. He is faithfully ordering all things and His ways are far above mine. I am safe in His care. I declare this by faith in Jesus. AMEN!
