God Works in Mysterious Ways || Weekly Devotions


Psalm 40:5
O LORD my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.

We had a dance practice a week ago for our Joseph the Dreamer play, it was tons of fun and very exhausting, especially since we ended late in the evening, and everybody had work the day after but it was all for the glory and furtherance of God’s kingdom. Anyway, we had to drop some of our church mates back home (we were all squished in the car, tired and sweaty) but… the car wouldn’t start.

Almost everybody had gone home and we were left stranded in the dark with nobody to help us start the car. Others would think that this was a set back, but for us it’s God’s set up for something better! It wasn’t surprising that they didn’t make a big deal out of it, God will make a way. Indeed, He did. While waiting for one of our church mates who drove back to help us out, we spotted our other friend walking to his car which was right in front of us! We didn’t have to wait for too long to get our car started! It’s all because of the grace of God. But wait, it didn’t stop there…

We spotted our other church mate, lets call her AJ, strolling casually along the sidewalk. She didn’t have anybody to drive her home (she’s chill like that). And because the car wouldn’t start, our friend had to be delayed to help us out and because he was delayed, AJ didn’t have to walk at a long distance to reach home (by herself, at night). God works in such wondrous and mysterious ways! We never usually notice them because we focus too much on the problem, but right now, I’m telling you that there is a reason for EVERYTHING. You might not understand why God would allow such things, but trust in Him because His ways are higher and better than our ways, and thoughts higher than our thoughts. He has no equal. He’s the best! Thank You, Lord for your awesome works! I will put my trust in You though I do not understand what You’re trying to do- please help me be a blessing to others as you are to me and help me shine Your light to those who are lost and seeking.
