Understanding God’s Ways

Just as you don’t know the path of the wind, or how bones develop in the womb of a pregnant woman, so you don’t know the work of God who makes everything. Ecclesiastes 11:5 HCSB

My oldest daughter, Bethany, and her husband Matt had a little girl named Ella Grace in December, and my youngest daughter, Sarah, and her husband, Dale had a little boy named Logan in June. Of course I am a proud grandfather. It was so exciting when both of our daughters sent us pictures of the sonograms showing the development of Ella Grace and Logan. It was amazing to see their tiny hands, fingers, and toes. We could even see each infant’s nose and ears. I can’t imagine how anyone who can see a sonogram and visualize the development of her baby could possibly consider having an abortion.

Even though sonograms were not available in Solomon’s time, he was amazed at the mystery of God and how God created a human being in the womb of a woman. There is nothing more exciting than to be a part of a birth. I can remember when my oldest child, Bethany, was born. The feeling of excitement and wonder was unforgettable! Just to think that God allows us to be a part of His creation of a new life is unbelievable. No one can fully understand God’s ways, but we can be assured that God is always in control. Psalm 139 proclaims, “You knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Romans 11:33 tells us, “How unsearchable His judgments and untraceable His ways.” We cannot fully understand God’s ways, but we must trust Him because He knows what is best.
Challenge: Praise God for how awesome He is. He is the Creator of the Universe and the Creator of every person. Thank Him for giving you life and a purpose for living. Do not try to understand God’s ways, just trust Him.
