"Have Faith"

There's something in life that took me a little while to realize…If it makes sense to God, it doesn't have to make sense to us. Let me repeat that. If it makes sense to God, it doesn't have to make sense to us. A lot of times in life we want things to make sense. We want to see the plan. And God is saying that's not how it works. You're seeing what is going on in the present. God is saying I'm seeing in the future. I'm looking a week, a month, a year out, and this is when it's going to make sense to you.

We have all had those situations in life. A friend of mine just went through one of these situations where she had a job offer that would advance her career. It was something that she has always wanted. Something that she had always envisioned. Yet, she felt God saying, “this isn't it”. So, she had to trust God and turn down the job. She is trusting God for the future.

How many times does it happen in the Bible? Look at Abraham and Sarah. God told them that they were to be parents at the age of 90. I’m sure they were thinking, “What?!?!”. Another example is Noah. God told him to construct an arc because in a couple of years there was going to be a massive flood. “Huh?!?!” If it makes sense to God, it doesn't have to make sense to us. Trust Him.

Isaiah 55:8 says, “Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts. Your ways higher than my ways.”

We have to have faith that God has a plan that is bigger than ours. So I'll say it again. If it makes sense to God, it doesn't have to make sense to us.

Many Blessings!
