Daily Devotional – 12/23/14 “God doesn’t always make sense!”

I never would have imagined this time last year that I would be preaching God’s word this time this year. Yes, I knew my path was changing because my walk was getting different, my spiritual walk; but I (catch that) I didn’t know I would be where I am now. Oh, but isn’t it amazing the journey God takes us on, if we just go with it? Please understand this, not everything that God does makes logical sense then but it makes purpose, it makes peace, it makes joy, it makes mercy, it makes grace, it makes happiness …it makes practical sense now! Yea, you didn’t understand why God told you to quit that job and take this one until you saw in the news that the company was closing. You didn’t understand why God told you to leave him alone until you saw his face plastered on the news. You didn’t understand why God wouldn’t allow you to get approved for that car until you read the recalls in the newspaper. You didn’t understand why God was leading you to that worship place until you left there with your deliverance and a new church home. You didn’t get why God was telling you to pull over until you passed that wreck that could have been you. You didn’t get why God was telling you to speak to that person until you left with a new job and a new friend. My God!

Do you see where this is going? Not everything God does make sense to us but it makes sense to Him, go with it! Stop questioning the Man and go with His plan. Baby, there are a lot of things you could’ve had in 2014, had you kept your mouth and moved your feet. God is still asking a lot of us, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Why won’t you move? You do know that God won’t send you into battle alone, don’t you? You do know, God won’t send you into the fire without the proper gear on, right? God won’t even send you into the storm without the proper rain wear, so why won’t you go? You are so scared of change, so afraid of trying something new and so fearful of letting go that you will use anger as a tactic to run people off but you won’t be able to use that always. I keep saying that God is shifting things and either you will get on board or get left. It’s your choice. Don’t let fear decide for you. Just because it doesn’t make sense to you now, doesn’t make it wrong. Pray about it but you have to be in the right frame of mind to get the right hearing from God.
