I Don’t Understand

Ok, it’s time for a message.  I don’t understand.  In the book of Ezekiel 37:1-3, scripture tells us the Lord brought Ezekiel out into a valley full of dry bones and asked him “Son of man, can these bones live?  So I answered (Ezekiel answered), O Lord God, You know”.  We ought to be as wise as Ezekiel in how we handle things we don’t understand.  I don’t understand why some people can become sick with a deadly disease and others do not; today I don’t understand why some people catch and die from the COVID-19 virus and others do not; I don’t understand why some people are successful when others seemingly are not; I don’t understand why some people are believers and others are not; I don’t understand why some people can be happy with the same things that make others unhappy.  There is a lot that I do not understand, but like Ezekiel, I understand this  – I will refrain from finding my own understanding for what I do not know because I could be wrong.  I can cause much pain and agony and I can look foolish when I find an answer in me for all that I do not know or understand.  Instead, I will hold to the One  Who understands everything because I cannot be wrong in that.  I may not understand as much as I would like, but I have learned that living with what I do not understand brings me closer to understanding more myself which helps me live a more satisfying life.  I don’t fill gaps in understanding with my thoughts ;  I fill those gaps with His thoughts. It is in living with what I don’t understand that the seeds of gratefulness are birthed; faith is strengthened; Love is perfected and appreciation for and humility  before others is established.  If you have an answer for everything you don’t understand,  you will become your own God.  Do you understand?  Live a Delivered Life.  Love you.
