I believe that our biggest opportunity in life today is that we keep trying make it all make sense! I’m sorry that I have to be the one to tell you that it’s not gonna make sense no matter how hard we try. Our lives are in God’s hands, when we allow Him to take control. We are God’s children; He knows everything about us. We are His AMAZING creation, and we must stop trying to figure out the Creator!
1 O Lord, you have examined my heartPsalm 139:1-6
and know everything about me.
2 You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
3 You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
4 You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
5 You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to understand!
I can never escape from your Spirit!psalm 139:7
I can never get away from your presence!
Unfortunately, in the midst of the chaos of this world, we are being inundated with all kinds of the negative information and numerous distractions and if we are honest, we have to admit that it becomes more and more difficult not to ask God why. Contrary to what many of us have been taught, it’s ok to question him. However, we must Wait for an answer and Have Faith! Keep in mind, that you may not get an answer and or the answer you get is just Not gonna make sense!
A friend sent me a song by Donald Lawrence, called, “Not Making Sense, Making Faith”. The lyrics go like this…
Faith is the substance of things hoped for,
The evidence of things not seen.
It lives beyond the senses,
You can’t see it, you can’t feel it, you just have it.
I’m in a season that requires GREAT faith.
Fear and doubt are all around me.
But I’m standing on what The Word says.
Faith is the evidence of what I can’t see.
And when people doubt the things that I do.
When I do what God told me to…
For the rest of my life I’m not making sense,
I’m making faith.
And with that …Drop the mic!
