Mid Week Devotional With Chris Chase
"My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord." (Isaiah 55:8) God is the Potter, we are the clay -- He is the Shepherd, we are the sheep -- He is the Master, we are the servant. No matter how much knowledge we have, no matter how much power & influence we think we have, no matter how long we've had a relationship with Him, & no matter how significant we imagine ourselves to be in His plan, none of that qualifies us to grasp the tiniest little bit of why He does what He does when He does it, & how He chooses to do it. Even in the midst of disappointment, surprise, & mystery, you will discover how very reliable & trustworthy God is -- & how secure you are in His hands. As puzzling as the process may be to us, He stays with His plan. We don't need to know all the reasons, & He certainly doesn't have to explain Himself! Just trust Him!
