Destruction is certain for those who argue with their Creator. Does a clay pot ever argue with its maker? Does the clay dispute with the one who made it saying, ‘Stop, you are doing it wrong!’ Does the pot exclaim, ‘How clumsy can you be!’ Isa 45:9
I may not understand my pain as I go through a trial. I surely don’t understand the ways or thoughts of God on most things. But I so trust His ability to use whatever happens that it will be for my good.
He certainly has a way of taking all the pieces and using them for growth and excellence in all things pertaining to the Kingdom of God working in me. I don’t understand the workings of it, but I will not argue with Him about it.
I believe it was about 3 years ago now that I clearly heard the Lord say, “I’m going to grow you into a deeper level of trust. A trust built on a sure foundation of Me and My Word.” Well, He sure did what He said! I wasn’t expecting it to all happen the way it did, but I sure stepped up my knowledge of His Covenant and what that means to me. I have learned to confidently trust Him in ways, even when they’re unexpected.
Yesterday, I posted the verse from Psalm 27:14 about waiting on the Lord. If you didn’t read it, go take a look at it. I’ve really been trying to set my mind on His promises and stepping back from it, resting in His ability to finish what He started on His own. When He’s ready for me to get involved, I’ll be well rested and ready to step in, but until that time, I won’t argue or dispute, I’ll just trust Him.
There’s Peace In His Rest,
