Higher, deeper, wider and longer
Job 11:7-9 – “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens above – what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below – what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea.”
Our human minds will never be able to fully understand exactly who God is and how He works. We can however, accept that we’ll never be able to understand Him. I feel that the act of accepting that God is God and that His ways and His thoughts are infinitely better and mightier than ours, is when you truly step into relationship with Him.The act of handing over the reigns and allowing Him to do exactly what He wants with your life, is when you truly step into His will.
That part is always easier said than done. Whether you know it or not, we all have control issues. We want to plan our lives to the tiniest detail. We have a life-plan sorted in our hearts and our minds. And when things start to go slightly off track, we worry and fret.
It’s in those moments that I have to remind myself that I’m not God. He is all-knowing – He knows what’s happening in my life. None of that is ever a surprise to Him. He knows what I’m capable of and He knows what I can and can’t handle. He knows what needs to happen in order for me to get to where He wants me to be.
Recognising that His ways are higher, deeper, wider and longer than we can ever know is an act of worship. Worship Him today because He knows exactly what His plans are for you.
