Take a step of faith–accept that you can’t always know the answer

I’m trying really hard not to just copy the whole thing, from my reading this morning…

“… I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning … My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.” (Isa. 46:9-10)
Recognize that because you are finite you will never be able to fully understand the ways of God….  God is in control of the world. Don’t try to grasp all the ramifications of this truth; just accept it….  “One of the marks of maturity,” says Charles Swindoll, “is the quiet confidence that God is in control … without the need to understand why He does what He does.” ….Feverishly trying to unravel all the knots can bring you to the edge of a nervous breakdown. The finite can never plumb the infinite. Face the fact that God’s ways are unsearchable and unfathomable…

Prayer:
My gracious Father, set me free today from the tyranny of trying to fathom the unfathomable. Quietly I breathe the calm and peace of Your sovereignty into my being. No longer will I struggle to understand: I shall just stand. Thank You, Father. Amen.

“Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It’s way over our heads. We’ll never figure it out.” (Rom. 11:33)
