“God does great things beyond our understanding,
way too many for us to even know about”
Jesus told us that the people who walk in faith are the ones who unconditionally believe even though they
have not seen. Whenever something big happens in our lives, most often there are no hints to let us know
what is about to happen; nothing perceivable on our part.
The thing is, we don’t need to know. We’d just screw it up. If we really believe that God is omnipotent,
omniscient, omnipresent, and all the rest, the last thing we’d want is to know is what’s lying ahead. When we
come to a place where unanswered questions are okay with us, then we’ve learned to trust. Simply put, if
you think you have all the answers, you are not walking in faith and God can’t bless something that
He didn’t ordain.
The Israelites endured forty years in the wilderness trying to find their way for what should have been an
eleven day trip. Why? Because they kept asking why, that’s why. Including Moses -
why me Lord? That’s not faith, and as you know no progress was made. They never did reach
their desired destination - not one of them. They never fulfilled the longing of their hearts.
They didn’t conquer - they settled.
Belief is in the heart, not the head. We’re becoming so used to asking God “what are you doing?”
on so many levels that the trust part has disappeared from our vocabulary. No way God’s going to
tell us what He’s doing or what His plans are, not to mention it’s none of our business. The great faith healer,
Kathryn Kuhlman, said that before she stepped out on the stage, laying it all on the line by totally trusting
God to perform miracles, she died a thousand deaths. But she did it anyway because she had faith in God.
She knew God had a better plan than what she could come up with.
Be content, be satisfied that you’re in God’s hands. Because it’s a fact - you are.
If we don’t know how to do anything but trust God, we’re going to get the prize. Maybe it’s time to unlearn the
habit of taking charge of everything and start over. The Scripture verse above tells us that God’s ways are
above and beyond anything we can grasp. Our minds are limited.
It also tells us that we don’t need to have all the answers.
