Sometimes life doesn’t make sense. Sometimes we don’t understand why God has allowed something to happen. Sometimes it’s our everyday circumstances that trip us up in our walk with God. Sometimes it’s the big theological questions that bring us up short. At times like this, I return again and again to Isaiah:
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.“Isaiah 55:8-9
These verses both comfort and challenge me. They remind me of God’s omniscience, which makes Him trustworthy. But they also highlight my own finite nature with all of its limitations. What about you?
Regardless of where you are today, will you join me in praying that God will meet us in that place? That He will help us to embrace our God-given limits and even our brokenness? That He will give us a vision of His goodness and grandeur? That He will help us to lay our thoughts, actions, and very lives at His feet, submitting to His omniscience and will for our lives?
As for me, I’m also praying that our gracious and loving Father will meet you where you are today, reassuring you with a knowledge and sense of who He is that allows you to rest in Him.
