A message from Martin
Some years ago when I was a Church Youth Leader, I asked the teenagers to consider this: If you were to read the Bible from cover to cover for the first time and you ignored everything you’ve been taught over the years (because they think Jesus is always the answer) what are the big things that stand out, the big rocks?
As you can imagine we had a variety of answers including; God is the creator and He is all powerful. He wants a personal, intimate relationship with us (humanity), God is love and so forth.
One of the younger members of the youth group highlighted the fact that God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts bigger than our thoughts. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9 NIV
Life can be confusing at times, even more so as we live with the threat and uncertainty of coronavirus. Plus the workings of God are a mystery to us. He does things in His way and in His time often not aligning with our plans and timescales. This calls for trust in this loving, all powerful God whose ways and thoughts are higher than ours. We are told in all circumstances of life to trust, look to God, submit to His higher ways and He will guide us.“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
