And The Glory Goes To…

While there are many things about God I get, there are also things that I just don’t understand.  But, the good thing for me is that I’ve come to terms with the fact that I just won’t.
For 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.”  Isaiah 55:8-9
Our God does things and allows things that don’t always make sense to our finite minds.  He calls a servant boy to be a king and uses a man who can’t speak to lead a nation.  He places a child inside a virgin and brings sight to a blind man with some dirt and saliva.  He asks a fisherman to take his message to the ends of the earth and He equips a little brother to interpret dreams. But, here’s one thing I do know:  Our God, He is awesome. He is worthy of glory and praise all the days of our lives.  He is a healer, a redeemer, a protector, a provider, a friend, a confidant.  He is trustworthy, inspiring, powerful, all-knowing, majestic.  He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega. He is my King.

  1. Thank you. I needed that this morning. My husband and I are separated and he has no desire to return, believing we can never be the same again. Usually I hold on to the Lord but it was a tough weekend with many highs and lows. I needed your words as a reminder of something I already knew. If God can create a fish to carry a man for three days, to drop him right where God wanted him then He can change my husbands heart and provide us both with forgiveness for one another.

  2. Thank you for your words of encouragement. I am a single mother of two. And i must say, the comments you made about CNN, and everybody else focusing on the lack in the earth is getting to me. But i do appreciate you confirming to me what i already know even though right now in my life, my finances doesn’t look so great. It’s like i’m torn between wanting to believe what i say i believe or giving in to what i’m living at this moment. Just this morning i prayed for Gods wisdom in every area in my life. Right now it seems that every area of my life is in true turmoil and i’m TIRED of it ALL….. I know there is a greater life for me naturally and spiritually. I keep seeing myself in a vision spiritually doing things for the kingdom but my carnality kicks in and says, you have no degree, you’ve never been to theology school. You’re not prepared and i’m SICK of feeling that way too. Thanks for the words of encouragement.

  3. Praise God for such a simple word. What a difference it has made in my heart this very moment. I am sitting in my office sorting through files and packing up for a lay off effective June 5th. With that said, I know that God is in control, He is not caught off guard with anything -He is the author and finisher of my faith. Financially, things are tight and I am fighting to keep my home, and I am not sure how things will eventually turn out. However, I do know that at this wonderful crucible of life – I know as for me and my house – we will serve the lord!

  4. I thank you for words of encouragement to remind me that GOD never changes sometime i feel like screaming because of not waiting on GOD concerning my marriage.Im asking GOD to help me not to scream and show me how to deal with my husband continue to pray for unsave husbands.

  5. Would you PLEASE contact Jon and Kate (plus 8) somehow and help them restore their crumbling marriage! 🙂 I think you’re just the couple to help 🙂

    love ya!

  6. Hey Cindy,

    I was just doing a personal study about the lack of details God sometimes gives us while simultaneously instructing us to accomplish some task. Sometimes I think I am just not capable of understanding all that God is trying to do in any single event. Other times maybe it’s just none of my business… my business is simply to obey… Great Post Cindy.

    Love you friend!

  8. Hi Cindy,
    I had the opportunity to read your devotional on Streaming Faith. It was an encouraging word about family. It has helped me center myself with all the busy-ness in my life. Family is important. Thanks for the reminder. Enjoy your trip. I’m praying that you make many memories.
