Letting God be God
With chemo on my mind this morning I went searching Scripture for a littel comfort, something that never disappoints. I landed in Isaiah 55 and some familiar verses that never go out of style.
My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
That then lead me to Luke 1:37–For nothing is impossible with God.
I love that. What a reminder. God can do anything. I know it sounds trite and looks even more trite when written, but it’s true. Nothing is too difficult for Him and what He does we don’t always understand.
It reminded me not to put God in a box, not to put expectations on Him or limitations based on my own understanding and finite knowledge. I mean, He’s God. He can do what He wants, right? I don’t have to approve or comprehend, just accept whatever comes from His hands in faith. Not always easy, I know, but I’m getting there.
As I head into my third round of chemo this is on my mind. I need to stop trying to pigeon hole God into doing what I want Him to do or what I expect Him to do or not do and just let Him be God.
