Baffled by God

“God’s riches, wisdom, and knowledge are so deep that it is impossible to explain his decisions or to understand his ways. Who knows how the Lord thinks? Who can become his adviser? Who gave the Lord something which the Lord must pay back?” Romans 11:33-35(GWT)

We don’t always understand why we go through what we do. God only promises enough light for the next step. That’s how we learn to trust Him…that’s the essence of our faith. Not in what we can see, but in what we can’t see. Trusting that God is who He says He is and He will do what He says He will do.

Today, if you’re baffled by your circumstances and by what God is doing in your life, I want to encourage you to hold on to your faith in the Living God. Although His ways are beyond our own comprehension, He does not veil the essence of His nature by the mystery of His greatness. He gives us glimpses of His character and calls us to trust what He has revealed to be true about who He is.

He is the Alpha and Omega, the Eternal One, the Almighty God, the One who is touched with the feelings of our infimities, the One who spoke this world into existence, the One who meets the needs of the sparrow and sees our hurting hearts. He is our God, our Savior, our Redeemer and our Friend. He is loving, He is kind, He is merciful, He is forgiving, He is long suffering, He is good…He is God! AND WE CAN TRUST HIM!

Are you in a place where you are baffled by God? Do you need to see Him work in a particular area of your life? Do you struggle with trusting Him? Can I pray for you today?

I’d love for you to join me in a journey that may look much like your own. Click here to subscribe.

  4. Hi Gina,
    I love how God uses so many different things and people to speak words of encouragement into our lives. I'm praying for you and can't wait to hear how God gets you to the other side of your circumstances as He takes His finger off the pause button of your life.

    Phil 3:7-14
