When You Question God’s Goodness

REMINDER: YOU’RE INVITED
to join my husband, Keith, and me this morning. 9:45-10:45 while we explore 2 Peter’s teaching on “How to Live by the Divine Nature.”  Trinity Baptist Church, 800 Jackson Rd, Kerrville, TX in the Family Life Center/Gym. Dress as you please. All welcome. Coffee, fruit, donuts. Join us!
Have you ever thought, “Why did You let this happen, God?” Or, perhaps you’ve wondered why God hasn’t answered your prayers? In Isaiah 40:28 we’re told, “The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is INSCRUTABLE.”  What does that have to do with God not appearing to answer our prayers? The word “INSCRUTABLE” comes from two Hebrew words that describe God’s understanding. The New International Version of the Bible uses the word “fathom.” “His understanding no one can fathom.” The New King James Version states it: “His understanding is unsearchable.” In other words, when we pray and don’t receive the answer from God that we want, or not in the timing we want, it helps to remember that His understanding of our situation is better than our understanding. His understanding of us and those involved is better than our understanding. Trust and faith are essential elements of not only our profession of faith; but also of our daily walk. We can trust our God, whose understanding is INSCRUTABLE. Will we?

Lord, Your understanding is INSCRUTABLE.  We look to You with faith in Your proven goodness.
