Trusting the Almighty's Judgment: Insights from Job 34:12

Job 34:12  Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.

Whatever God does or allows, He does so justly!  We may not understand Him but we must trust Him nonetheless!  How often does a parent give a command that the child does not understand?  The fact is, there are many things that a child simply can’t understand even if you were to try to explain yourself!  In the same way, our Heavenly Father has so much wisdom that we could not even begin to understand, even if He were to attempt to show us!  Understanding may come with growth, maturity, and faithfulness to His name, and yet some things we will not be able to know until we lay down this corrupt flesh and put on immortality!

The key to serving God even when He doesn’t make sense to us is this:  TRUST!  Is this not what faith is all about?  When you are limited in your understanding regarding a subject, where do you go?  You go to the “expert”, right?  For example, when those who are not mechanically inclined hire a mechanic to fix their vehicle, they are exhibiting trust.  It would be foolish to demand the mechanic to teach you in a few moments what it has taken him years of schooling and experience to learn.  We don’t expect this do we?  No!  We just want the car fixed, and we trust the judgment of the mechanic, because we know that he knows more on the subject than we do!

Why then do we give God such a hard time, when He chooses not to reveal to us the why?  Should we not simply trust His great judgment?  There’s nothing wrong with asking God why, for did not our Lord ask why on the cross?  It only becomes sin when we get to the point where we become angry with God for not giving us the understanding that we have asked for.  Remember that God always answers your prayers.  He either says yes, no, or wait!

My friend, have you inquired of the Lord lately for understanding that He has not given you as of yet?  Trust Him regardless!  Wait on the Lord, and be of good courage, and He WILL strengthen your heart!
