Sometimes I don’t comprehend God!
In all honesty, it happens the majority of the time.
Why won’t He make Himself known to me more clearly? Why does He frequently leave me in the dark about what He is doing or thinking? You know, I have high hopes for God and what He can and ought to achieve and when I observe Him acting differently from how I believe my God should act, I can become frustrated and disheartened.
We all have known loss and tragedy and grief. The death of a baby. The horror of cancer taking a wife or husband. The senseless destruction of an avoidable car accident which crippled someone we love for life. The rebellion of our child as they run away from God – we cry out to God every day for Him to save them and reveal Himself to them and we see no change.
Why would God act that way? Why does He not feel obligated to live up to our demands? Because He is God! You’d think He’d be out and about demonstrating who He is and what He can do because He wants everyone to come to Him. Why then does he not do that?
One day, as I was reading my Bible, I came across a chapter that spoke to the conflict I was experiencing with God. Jesus was emphasising to His followers that He was the Bread of Life as He spoke to them.
