Are God’s ways and my ways the same?
When are they in harmony?
“Others said, “He is the Messiah.” Still others asked, “How can the Messiah come from Galilee? Does not Scripture say that the Messiah will come from David’s descendants and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived? Thus the people were divided because of Jesus.” – John 7:41-43
My mom would always say, “Gods ways are not my ways” and I have seen that to be true in my life time and again.
In so many ways Jesus created more questions than He did answers in His day- Why is that?
Could it have anything to do with the idea that we are saved through faith?
I can’t explain the workings or all the ways God does things, but one thing I know for sure anyone who says they can is a liar! God isn’t a Being that I can say, if it quakes like a duck and looks like a duck it must be a duck- except for one thing.
God Is Love!
Keep in mind that my limited definition of Love is a very shallow and perhaps nonexistence idea from any stretch of the depths of His Ocean of Love. My finite mind cannot fathom how deep and how wide and how cleansing and healing His Love is- it just isn’t capable of that.
I cannot tell you I know what God looks like or why He does some of the things He does but I can tell you where to see God. You can see God in the Love we have for one another, you can see God in the Love a person has for a total stranger, and you can find God by seeing that whatever differences we may have- His Love shines through!
Yes people were divided because of Jesus. Why? Because they wanted all the answers and they focused on that instead of just 3 simple words- LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
Without faith it is impossible to please God and without Love you are not following God. But here is the kicker- If you search for all the answers you will miss God completely!
Put your focus on Love and watch the miracles happen in your life, put your focus on answers and watch the frustration build in your soul!
Don’t worry- Be Grace-Full!!
