God doesn’t make sense
Ecclesiastes 11:5 – As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of god, the Maker of all things.
There are moments when I’m studying the Word that I get totally frustrated with myself because I can’t make sense of it all. There are days when I just don’t understand how stories link together, and how God can be so friendly and loving in some, and then so angry and mean in others.
I get the same feeling of frustration, when I see bad things happen around me. When I think about people who could have been healed ages ago, but are still suffering now. Why can’t God just heal them and be done with it?
It has taken me a while to understand that God will probably never make sense to any of us. He’s so Godly, so powerful, so wise, so wonderful that our human brains can’t even begin to fathom who He is, what He does and why He does it.
Grasping the fact that He doesn’t make sense because He is God, has been a big step in my relationship with Him. It’s realising that sometimes I have to simply let things go and trust that His way prevails, because He is so much wiser than I will ever be.
You don’t have to be able to explain God to love God. You don’t have to be able to figure out a scientific formula in order to figure Him out. Just like we can’t explain the wind but still feel it, the same way we can’t explain Him but can still feel His love and His presence.
