When You Don’t Understand
Hi Church, I’m Lane and I’m so excited to bring you today's devotional as we continue our 21 Day Fast.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Something I have been dwelling on is just how big our God is, how vast He is, how great He is. He is all powerful and all knowing. We are not able to understand all that God is or all that He does. Now, some people take that and say they can’t believe in a God that they can’t fully understand. However, I encourage you to take comfort in that. Take comfort in the fact that we cannot always understand His plan. He is a big God
I do not know what you are facing or what you are fasting for but I encourage you to find your comfort in Him. Don’t turn to the things this world has to offer, it leaves you empty. It is amazing to me that when you feel like there is no end in sight to what you are going through that you can still have a peace that you do not understand, you can still have a joy that the people that surround you in your life do not understand.
Also, I want to encourage you in this; in Isaiah it talks about God's understanding, that it is unsearchable. Recently I have been going through a time of not understanding and that verse has brought me so much peace. God understands exactly what you are going through and what you are feeling. He is right there beside you to comfort you, to bring peace, to bring joy, and to see you through.
Our God is big, and we do not always understand His plan, but take comfort in the fact that His ways are so much higher than our ways (and better)! He is in the trial with you. He loves you. He will bring you through.
Love you Church,
