Great and Unsearchable Things

Things the Lord gives me, and then I write them.

Praise God that God is God!!!!

I've heard it said that God does not violate His natural laws. This is not so. What about changing water into wine? What about raising from the dead? What about dividing the Red Sea? What about coming into a soul and turning it towards Him? Miracles violate natural law. God made the laws, and He breaks the laws. God is sovereign. God is in control. God is God!!!! How glorious that is. How wonderful that is. How comforting!! He makes the final decisions on things, and His decisions are just, true, and perfect-and they are good, whether we can see it that way or not. He really does know what He is doing. He really has a plan. Nothing upsets Him or surprises Him. Everything is for His purposes, and we can't circumvent Him or His plans. Jacob tried that at the Brook Jabok, and he came out limping. So will we if we think we can "take on" God. He can blow and the whole world will be gone. God is so God!!! So big and mighty. The only power the devil has is the power God gives him. Just like in Job's case, the devil had to ask permission. And he has to ask permission for our lives too. That gives me comfort to know that God is really in control, and the enemy is subservient to God and must come to Him for his power. And then, to top it all off, God uses it all, for His higher and greater purposes, which, many times we can't see or He decides to keep them to Himself.
Is that alright with us? Can we accept that-to know God knows, and that be good enough? Can we still trust Him if we have to walk by faith all the days of our lives?
