You have wearied the Lord with your words. ‘Wearied him?’ you ask. ‘How have we wearied him?’ You have wearied him by suggesting that the Lord favors evildoers since he does not punish them. You have wearied him by asking, ‘Where is the God of justice?’ Malachi 2:17
I wonder how many times I’ve wearied God? Assuming that I know anything at all, what makes me think I know more than He does, or that I question what He does or how He does it? Yet so often it just happens.
This kind of reminds me of the last couple chapters of Job when God speaks and puts Job and his friends in their place. “Where were you when I formed the worlds? Is it your hand that held back the waters?” (My translation)
It all comes down to trust, doesn’t it? Trusting to hear His voice, to do what He says without question or doubting. Trusting that all things will work out. Knowing that all power and authority was given to us and trusting we get it right.
When we trust, we know there are reasons beyond our understanding. When we trust, we realize we just don’t have Gods perspective on things. When we trust, we know He cannot lie! His Word doesn’t come back void!
It’s just a matter of time. The Lord ALWAYS has our best interest in mind. When we trust, we also learn to listen, correct our path and press on. Nothing can separate us from the LOVE of God or make us believe He is not a good and faithful God.
He’s Got This,
