Don’t know if you’ve ever felt like this… Got a beautiful piece of new technology… did wonderful things… but suddenly one day it just stopped working… so frustrating!!! I couldn’t find an owner’s manual… tried Googling for a solution… Talked to every “techie” I knew about my issues… Tried everything imaginable… all dead ends!!! I couldn’t figure it out or make it work!!! … I FELT ABSOLUTELY AND COMPLETELY HELPLESS!!!
The writer of Ecclesiastes must have felt a little bit like that one morning when he wrote these words…
“I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race… He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3.10-11)
So what is to be done? We’ve just got to trust Him! He knows the beginning from the end… He’s the one who’s got it figured out “inside-out”… and we don’t! We can’t fix it on our own… It’s beyond us. We’ve just got to bring it to Him… talk to Him about it… and leave it in His hands! Fortunately, that’s where the analogy I presented earlier ends… God can’t be Googled… but He is THERE!!! He hears! He listens! Prayer works! Faith is NOT a dead-end street! He has everything in control and will work things out! I believe it!!! I’m going to trust Him!!!
