Over the years I have heard Christians say the strangest things. One statement that always makes me shake my head is, “Oh, God would never do that!” The prophet Isaiah said, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)
In our finite understanding can we really presume to know the mind of Christ?
I don’t imagine we will ever understand all the intricacies of God. And if we could manage to understand His ways, would He really be God? Although we can’t completely understand His thoughts, we do know much about Him. One thing that is evident through scripture is, God loves us! (John 3:16) Even when we go through difficult times, our suffering does not compair to our future in Christ. (Romans 8:18)
