"... great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend." Job 37:5

What is God doing? We often find ourselves asking this question because we simply do not know. We are all too often reminded that "his ways are not our ways" and that he is higher, holier, and far wiser than the best specimen we can provide him. God is not answerable to any of us, no matter what we may think, he does not have to explain himself to us under any circumstances. Gods sovereignty is a difficult thing for our proud flesh to cope with much of the time, but we must tame ourselves, and realize that when we do not know what he is doing, he still does. How many times has it been that God was up to something, and we were questioning and complaining; while the whole time it was working out to our benefit? The great thing about God is that he does great things! He is unlimited in his resources, unmatched in his power, and unrelenting in his will; so when he does something it will always be great. When we view the finished product of the Lord we can always stand in awe, and cry out "what hath God wrought", for it will be beyond comprehension, and explanation. Let us not grow weary when we do not understand the way God is moving, and think that he is plotting against us; for he loves us. We must be keenly aware of the fact that there is no power that we hold to stay his hand, and if he were to desire our destruction he could do it in a moment, without any constraint. How great it is though, that he is not doing that; but rather is working "all things together for good to them that love God".
