_ 081814 I don't understand

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and worthy of our praise. Here we are with another wonderful day before us. It’s our job to use it to the glory of God. The question now becomes this; will you do it?

Today’s Prayer

(make this a personal prayer)

I praise You Lord, for Who You are; the Alpha, Omega, Beginning and the End, Savior and Lord, You’re my best friend; Creator of all. Thank You for being my best friend forever. Thank You for being my heavenly Father, always present and always there for me. Thank You for being my sustainer and protector. And thank You for saving me and setting me upon the solid Rock–JESUS. It’s in His wonderful name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Things we Can’t Understand

Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. ~ Job 42:3

In my search for knowledge and understanding I was led to the book of Job. If there was any one man on earth who had reason to question God’s love, it was Job. He lost his family, his health, and his wealth—all at the same time. His friends came to his side only to question his spirituality. God had already answered the question of his integrity. Job was described in the opening verses of the book as “blameless and upright” (see Job 1:1). His calamities were not born from sin. Job acknowledged God’s right to do anything in his life until one day he could take it no longer. He questioned God’s motives.

God answered Job, but not in the way he wanted to hear. God answered him with a series of questions that represents the most incredible discourse of correction by God to any human being. Three chapters later, Job realized that he had questioned the motives of the Author of the universe, the Author of love. He fell flat before his Creator and realized his total depravity. “Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.”

Have you ever questioned God’s activity in your life?

Have you questioned His love for you based on circumstances that came your way?

The cross at Calvary answers the love question. He sent His own Son in replacement for your sin. If you were the only person on earth, He would have done the same. His ways can’t always be understood or reconciled in our finite little minds. That must be left for a future time when all will be understood. For now, entrust your life to Him completely. Embrace Him in the hard times and the good.
