He Reveals His Character

Life’s difficult things can cause us to wonder,  

“Why did this happen?” Even when we trust in Christ  

we can find ourselves asking, “How could he let this happen?”  

God doesn’t reveal all his reasons to us,  

but he has revealed his character to us.  

The testimony of his character in the Word and in his Son  

assures us that he never makes mistakes,  

is never uncaring, and never separates himself  

from our need. The needs we face may be great,  

but the grace that is ours in Christ is even greater.  

As our eyes of faith stay fixed upon him,  

we receive his assurance that he is holding our hand  

and will never let go. 

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 55:8-9. 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 
    neither are your ways my ways,” 
declares the Lord. 
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, 
    so are my ways higher than your ways 
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
