He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Romans 8:32
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9
So many whys and so many questions and sometimes it seems as if God does not take the time to answer. He seems like He does whatever He wants and asks us to worship him, fear Him and trust Him in the midst of our circumstances, despite past, hurts, and silences. And we feel like Job: desperate for God to provide us with an answer, a sign that will give an explanation.
But contrary to Job, we know the story. We know who is God and we know what He has done, how marvelous are His deeds and how far beyond our understanding they stand. But we also know His goodness and His kindness. Yes God has always been kind and good and faithful, but He has revealed it in an extraordinary way in the coming, death and resurrection of His son. Yes, it is sometimes difficult to trust God. Yes, it is difficult to understand His way. But we can still our hearts and rest on His goodness. At least there is no uncertainty about His goodness and His faithfulness.
“I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted. ‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
