The Need to Know

"Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother's womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things." Ecclesiastes 11:5 NLT

As I was reading the script notes at the bottom of the page this verse was on, it states that in some instances, "wind" and "spirit" are the same word in the original. When you read it that way, "just as you cannot understand the path of the "spirit" doesn't it make it more personal?

No, we don't always understand the path of our spirit. And the concept of how the Lord designed to have our lives begin, inside a womb, is totally mind boggling.

And have you ever been in a situation in your own life and made the statement, "I just don't understand God. Why is this happening to me?" Is it really necessary for us to understand? Sometimes not. For if we always understood, we would never need to lean on our faith. "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1 NLT

So, the next time you get into a situation in your life, don't try to understand it. Just pray it over to your Heavenly Father and He will take care of the rest.

"These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world." 1 Peter 1:7 NLT
