“Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all the deeps” Psalm 135:6
In the early hours of the morning these words are a source of real comfort and, in a special way, liberating. Knowing that our Lord is working out His immutable decrees in our lives, the lives of others and in His creation is a source of peace for the soul. Making such a statement does not answer the inquiries of men who have the habit of asking God “Why” or accusing God of being “unloving and unkind,” but it is the truth. For the Christian knowing God is indeed, perfect love, kindness and mercy we have no reason to think that He acts otherwise though we may not see it in circumstances such as these. Whatever the Lord pleases, He does…
There’s a hymn, familiar to some of us that was written as a means of exhortation to the person who may be tempted to as God, “Why?” The last verse goes like this, “Whate’er my God ordains is right, here shall my stand be taken; though sorrow, need or death be mine, yet am I not forsaken; my Father’s care, is round me there He holds me that I shall not fall, and so to Him I leave it all”
Rest in the knowledge that God is in the heavens, His ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts and He is gracious, loving, kind and merciful. Find peace and contentment in the knowledge that whatever pleases Him, will be done…and it will always be “right”!
All By Grace
