Behold, God is exalted by His power; who teaches like Him? Who has assigned Him His way, or who has said, ‘You have done wrong?’ Remember to magnify His work, of which men have sung.
John Hagee Daily Devotional 3 December 2020
When we consider only the things that we know, our expertise limits our expectations. We fail to account for a sovereign God Who knows all things.
He understands things that we have not even considered. Not only does He know about our current needs, He was aware of them before we even knew they existed. When we bring our request to Him, He already knows how He will solve it.
Yet, we often argue His answer. We tell Him how to figure out what He has already solved. If His response does not look like we expected, we accuse Him of doing wrong. Wouldn’t it be wiser to trust in a God Who can accomplish much more than our expertise leads us to expect?
If we had relied on our expertise, Mary would not have experienced a virgin birth. Jesus would have never fed 5000 with a few fish and loaves. Lazarus would have remained in a tomb. The way of the cross would not have led to redemption. Death would not have given way to victorious, overcoming life.
In our expert opinion, none of that makes sense! None of that should have happened. But God specializes in the unexpected, and we can trust in His right way.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Trust in Jesus. Do not lean on your own expertise. Believe in His better way!
