Heaven Pt. 146: Nothing Hidden

From heaven the Lord looks down

and sees all mankind;

14from his dwelling place he watches

all who live on earth—

15he who forms the hearts of all,

who considers everything they do. Psalm 33:13-15

There are so many things about this world I just don’t “get”.  I don’t “get” why God heals one guy from cancer but lets another die. I don’t “get” why one girl is rescued from human trafficking and another is left to live out her days in bondage. I don’t  “get” why some days I can look temptation square in the eyes and deny it any power at all and on other days it seems like a battle just to stay spiritually alive never mind victorious. It’s a good thing the spinning of the globe doesn’t rely on my understanding, because if it did I am quite sure the world would come to a screeching halt.

The world doesn’t rely on my understanding. Fortunately it doesn’t have to. I may not understand much of anything (and the longer I live as a Christian the more I come to understand that I really understand almost nothing of everything) but God knows everything about everything. He sees all mankind and understands the depths of every man and woman’s heart. He understands and knows our motives and he “gets” how every inner-working interplays with every other inner-working on the planet. He gets the butterfly effect…good golly He is the butterfly effect! So if today there is something you don’t “get” just commit it into the hands of the One who is Wisdom!

  1. Love this JE! So true!
    I have many “I don’t gets” as well. I guess my biggest one would be not ‘getting’ why God would bother with me – and why He would continue with me even when I disappoint Him so many times.
    I just praise Him for the REALITY of His work in me and for the total assurance that He will continue it until He has completed the job.

    • I know what you mean Angela. Why He chose to call me and why He hasn’t given up are definite things “I don’t get”. Sometimes I am even ready to give up on myself and it is His Spirit who encourages me to keep on. We serve and amazing God!
