Faith is … Trusting that Our Heavenly Father Knows Best
In the Word
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! Romans 11:33a
Of the Word
Most five-year olds think their dad can fix anything, answer every question, and make everything right.
Likewise the Christian with a child-like faith is sure his Heavenly Father knows best. God is able to see far beyond our likes and dislikes. Like a good earthly father, He permits His children to receive only that which is best for them in the end, whether for the moment they like it or not.
Only on the sixth day could the perfect wisdom of God be seen in His creation. Only on Easter could the perfect wisdom of God be seen in His plan of salvation. Only in eternity will we fully see what the wisdom of God has accomplished in our lives.
God the Father knows everything. He knows us, loves us, and wants the very best for us. We can trust Him for everything, for He alone has the answers to all of life’s questions.
Walking with my Lord
Heavenly Father, help me to trust You for the answers to life’s questions. In Your Son’s name. Amen.
