Isaiah 55:8,9 – “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declared the LORD. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.'”
Sometimes we don’t understand God and how He works. Does that mean we don’t believe Him? Absolutely not! Do you understand how a car works? More than likely, no, but that doesn’t mean you don’t drive everyday. It comes down to faith – believing even though you don’t understand.
But sometimes we put limits on God. We are confined by space and time but not God. Just think about that for a moment. My daughter asked me yesterday, “Why does God need to see everything we do when He already knows what we are going to do in the first place?” My answer, “I don’t know.” Thankfully, my kids are okay with that answer. They have come to understand that mom doesn’t know it all. Sad, but true.
Anyway, we limit God. We don’t understand how He can do what He does for every person on earth. How can He love that many people? How can He listen to that many prayers all at one time? How can He know every thing about me and the person next to me and not get us confused? How can He know what is best for each person? Now, don’t get me wrong, I am NOT questioning God. I just find myself sometimes overwhelmed by Who He Is!
As a mom, I HAVE to multi-task. It is not a suggestion, but rather a requirement for life. You need to be able to cook dinner, do a load of laundry, help with homework and plan a grocery list all in the same moment. It’s just the way that it is. Now, take that scenario and multiply it by a billion. That is what God does every minute of every day. Wrap your brain around that one!
The point of all this rambling is this: don’t put God in a box. Don’t limit what the Creator of the universe can do for you. Remember that Jesus said in Luke 19:40 – “‘I tell you,’ he replied, ‘if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.'” If Jesus can make the stones cry out to praise Him, what limitations does He have? None, sister. None.
