Kitchen Table Devotions
Therefore, I speak to them in parables; because while seeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. Matthew 13:13
What’s your understanding? We can’t understand God’s way by forcing it into our way or through our way of thinking. God’s thoughts are not man’s thoughts and God’s ways are not man’s ways. (Isaiah 55:8-9) But without understanding, there will not be an undertaking. God makes no excuses; this is the way it is. God’s way is by God’s word, not ours. The wonders of God are on the other side of God’s word, not on this side where we evaluate life by our own passions and perspectives. Knowing God and His promises, power, and purpose requires taking God’s word and way as the truth. That means laying down our perspective for His.
