For who has known the mind of the Lord? -Romans 11:34
Life is so confusing at times. So many are so worried about what life brings. Money. Relationships. Work. Wrong doing.
Why do things work the way they do?
Our Father, does not afford us the same omnipresence that He has embedded in His character. He does not afford us the foreknowledge of future loss, and of future victories. God the Father has not given us the privilege of knowing why some things happen. “What is the meaning of life? Why are we here?”
But what the word of God does tells us is, “fear not”
The Lord’s workings are understood by no one. He works in ways that are only comprehended by himself. His ways are not our ways. “For who has known the mind of the Lord?” Why does he let evil come upon us? Why do evil people prosper and the good suffer?
“For who has known the mind of the Lord?”
But God, does tell us one thing: “Fear not”…. Better yet, he says, “Fear not, for I am with you” -Isaiah 41:10
The Lord has promised us that he would be with us every step of the way… even in the midst of trial or suffering.
How the sweet promise of the Lord’s presence fills my heart and soul, even if I know nothing else of this world!
But for those who cannot begin to believe this as it is, consider this evidence:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life” -John 3:16
God’s provision for us is sacrificial. He gave up his righteous son to cover the wrath that was meant for us. He says, “fear not”, because he will stop at nothing to protect us, even if it cost Him something near to his heart.
So, for who has known the mind of the Lord?
No one. And it doesn’t matter. Because the promises His presence that will guide us to his glorious will. And that will is for us to be redeemed in Christ.
Do not be afraid! For the great protecter and provider is with you!
