“God works in mysterious ways.”
Here’s another saying we hear often: “God works in mysterious ways.” Is it Biblical? According to Isaiah 55:8-9 it is. Here’s what it says: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
I’m sure we could spend more time really digging in and picking this verse apart. It would mean the same thing. God does work in ways that are mysterious to us. A 25 year old’s lifespan is nothing to an 80 year old. Nor is an 80 year old’s lifespan anything to One who sees across millenia past and present.
Truth takeaway: Yes, God works in mysterious ways.
Freedom takeaway: We can not worry and trust that God has his childrens’ taken care of. We may not understand how, but God’s got it under control.
