The mysteries of the way God works are just that. They are a mystery to us, but a mystery worth looking into or investigating through studying his Holy Word.
I wish I could understand why one person suffers and the next one doesn't.
I wish I could understand why some people never seem to get sick and others are sick all the time.
I wish I could understand why one person prays and is healed on the spot and the next one prays and gets sicker and even dies.
I wish I could understand why some prayers receive an immediate answer? while the answers to others require much patience.
For whatever reasons, God has chosen to keep many things a mystery to us.
I guess some things of God are simply on a 'need to know' basis.
In Proverbs 3:5 (NIV), it says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
I like the words of Proverbs 3:4-5 in the Living Bible, which read: “If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself.”
Until we know the answers, we need to keep looking, praying and asking for God's wisdom and discernment.
We have to believe beyond our ability to understand how our problems can be solved
God has revealed many great and wonderful truths in His Word, but He has also withheld the meaning of many things. It must be remembered that God knows everything and thus He knows every detail regarding our lives, our bodies, our hearts and our minds. God knows what we have done with every minute of our lives. He knows the times we have trusted Him totally and the times we have drifted off to do our own thing.
There is nothing about us that is a mystery to God.
