This devotional is adapted from Christine Caine’s new book, How Did I Get Here?
After more than thirty years of following Jesus, there is much I still don’t understand, but God’s ways are not my ways, and His thoughts are not my thoughts. In fact, the Bible says they are both higher (Isaiah 55:9).
So, my starting point in wading through any confusion I might have is that God is God, and I am not. If I do not understand something God is doing, it does not suggest a problem with God. It just means I don’t get it. At least, not at the moment. We rarely have the whole picture all at once. It’s like we’re holding a piece of a jigsaw puzzle and God is holding the other 999 pieces that we don’t even know exist yet.
We can’t see all that He is doing. But just because we can’t see all these things — just because we can’t trace God — doesn’t mean we shouldn’t trust God and believe He isn’t working.
