Have you ever been completely confused? You cannot make sense of why God seemingly is standing by and does not hear your cries. Why is He allowing your family too do without? Why can your not get a decent job? You cry out, “God, I am not asking for much? Why? I don’t understand!”
I have been there. Probably will again. Sometimes as time goes by, we may be able too see why God chose to go the way He did. Sometimes we may never understand. When we think we get it we are probably still missing the mark. We cannot set the entire picture from where we stand. We must trust that regardless of how it seems He is there, He does hear your cries, He does care. Even when it hurts so much and you feel so alone you have to make yourself trust that Him no matter what. We each have to do that during the hard times. We all have them.
God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
There is rest and comfort to be found in that God “does great things beyond our understanding” (NIV, NET). The NLT says, “We can’t even imagine the greatness of his power”. I find refuge in this because sometimes in life, things worse than we can imagine happen to us, or we find ourselves wanting to stand firm against “impossible” odds. This kind of situation is the perfect stage for God to show up and display His authority, and the extent of His truly amazing grace. Take heart, He loves you and wants to be with you.
