It’s Not For You to Understand Why

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever! Amen. ~ 2 Peter 3:18

2 Peter 3:18
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

I know you’re struggling today. Things just seem to be on a downward spiral out of your control. You feel like a failure and you’re reacting inappropriately to your loved ones, instead of coming to Me first in order to renew a right Spirit within you. It’s not for you to understand the why of things, just keep your focus on the light shining in front of you, illuminating the darkness. You don’t feel safe and secure when things are outside of your grasp and you wonder at the purpose of it all. Press forward and stand firm. I am God of All and I want you to rest in the assurance that I have everything under control. Dive deeper and grow in grace and knowledge of Me.

It’s a learning experience, a process… that’s what growth is all about. It’s stretching you to your limits, it’s teaching you how to respond in a manner that would be pleasing to Me, no matter what gets thrown at you. You have to be able to manage and be responsible for the little things before you can be entrusted with greater things. Remember, this world you inhabit is only temporary… strive forward with eternity in mind, and don’t lose heart, for I am the one leading you.

  1. I am reminded of the Wedding at Cana when Mary tells the servants, “Do whatever he (Jesus) tells you.”

    Of course, if we are want wine, it makes little sense (to us) to fill our wine jars with water. We cannot see the purpose. This is when we must remind ourselves of Mary’s gentle instructions: “Do whatever he tells you.”

    Jesus’ first miracle was not only performed at the request of his blessed mother, but it is his mother who sets the right example of Christian faith: When you need something, ask him. When in doubt, do as he says.
