God’s Way 2015-03-01
God’s ways are much deeper and much wiser than our ways. It shouldn’t surprise us that his plans for us are going to be different than ours. We start to think about the differences when times get hard or when we hurt. We are tempted to accuse God of being unfair or unloving. Our faith knows better. Our faith knows that God’s promises are reliable and that he works everything for our good. We all need a reminder now and then. God brought Jacob to a place where he gave him a vision of a ladder reading form heaven to earth. He brings us to church where he teaches us about his grace. He loves us enough to provide reminders. He loves us enough to take our place in judgment. He loves us, period. We need to know that. Church is one of the few places where we can learn it.
