One of the girls I occasionally babysit was telling me a story about her dad. Her father is a super-brilliant-smart engineer for some sort of solar company. One day he was in a meeting and they were presenting some sort of new project or program that was being put into place. As the man in charge was presenting it, this girls dad interjected in with a few corrections that the man was saying wrong about this project. She said that FINALLY after several interjections, the man presenting it was like, HOW DO YOU KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT THIS ANYWAYS??? And she said her dad was like,
Well, I kind of created it!!!
Think about it, there is NO ONE that knows MORE about something, THAN THE CREATOR of that something!!! No one knows more about a book than the writer of that book! No one knows more about a painting than the painter of that painting. No one knows more about a prepared meal than the one that cooked it!!!
Annnnnnd NO ONE knows MORE about US, than the one that CREATED US!!! The one that formed us from the dust of the earth and breathed into us the breath of life!!! Just like an artist can look at their painting and know each and every detail of it, He can see the beauty, but he can also see the flaws and imperfections as well, and where it can be fixed, changed, made better.
Why do we have to obey God and follow all his rules? Why do we have to submit our will to his will? Why do we have to trust in him when it makes NO sense? How does he know what is best for us? How does he have the hairs of our head numbered? Why does he tell us the things that we need to change? Why does he show us things we need to do differently? WHY does he get to tell us what to do? HOW DOES HE KNOW SOOOOO MUCH ABOUT US??? Weeeeeeeeeellllll...
ITS because HE CREATED US!!!
He knows what's best for us, BECAUSE HE MADE US!!!
He knows us better than we know ourselves.
He knows exactly what we need.
Just stand still and listen.
Hear his voice.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength: (Isaiah 26:3-4)
