Five years back, I remember having a conversation with my friend Zen, in my hostel. During one of our discussions, I remember, she said…. “ We can never fully understand GOD”. That statement that she made that day rings in my ears till this day…. and when there are moments when I desperately seek for answers for my ‘Why’ questions….. I guess the best thing is to just trust in His Sovereignty and His unending Goodness.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8,9
For many of our ‘Why’ questions, perhaps we may never find answers in our lifetime, but we can find solace in the fact that all that comes our way, happens with the knowledge of God. And God’s thoughts for your life and mine is far greater than what you and I can ever imagine with our 1 kg brain!!!
When I get angry, His thoughts toward me is still good. When I get bitter, His hands still brush the strand of hair that falls on my face. When I say, “You are mean!”, His heart still aches for me. When I cry on His lap, His hand still embraces me. ‘Your’ emotions may change….. BUT GOD IS STILL THE SAME. HE NEVER CHANGES. AND HIS PROMISES…. THEY NEVER FAIL.
JESUS….JESUS…IN YOUR NAME I TRUST!!!
