When No One Understands You

Do you ever feel like no one understands you – truly understands you?

Or perhaps you have thought, “I can’t understand how you could…” in regard to another person’s actions or words?

No doubt, as much as we may love or know someone, we can never get inside another person’s head. Nor can they totally understand us. But God can.

Psalm 147:5 says, “Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.”

The word, infinite, in this passage means innumerable. In other words, the Lord’s understanding of us and everything in the world in time and space is limitless. It is endless and impossible to measure. And the most amazing thing is He loves us.

How can we not run to Him in love and gratitude? Why would we not talk to Him about everything on our heart and mind, knowing He understands us and our situation? Why would we not quietly wait and listen for God’s instructions and guidance? (By the way, when you talk things over with God, it helps to have your Bible so when He stirs your heart you can look up the verses He brings to mind.) It also helps to have pen and journal so you can write down how He instructs you.

When no one understands, remember that God does and He loves you. Run to Him. Pray to Him. Listen to Him. Obey Him.

Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus Christ, You have INFINITE UNDERSTANDING. Thank You for loving me and guiding me.
