For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice, and He preserves the way of His godly ones. Then you will discern righteousness and justice and equity and every good course. -Proverbs 2:6-9
We are always all too concerned with knowing details to our life. Reasons why someone loves us, reasons why we were fired, reasons why we are sick, reasons why they ended the relationship, reasons why we don’t feel close to someone anymore. But there is one reason that will always trump all others: God.
Quit trying to explain something God wants you to experience. If you understood the details of what worked out, you would try to take credit. You don’t need to know how or why, but I only know who – Jesus. Stop trying to make excuses for yourself as to why you failed, in hopes of saving your reputation. God’s plan for your life isn’t always a upward increase, but sometimes a wise decrease. There is a purpose in everything – learn it.
When He makes a change, He makes a mess. He doesn’t want us to completely understand, that’s why it’s called child like faith. All we need to know is who did it. We are blessed to serve a God that can make our mistakes into miracles and can turn our mess into the greatest turning point in our life.
If you’re not celebrating what God is doing in your life you are being ungrateful – stop worrying about trying to understand how you got here, but rather who got you here. If your eyes aren’t on Jesus, you’re going to be caught up in wondering your life away.
