I am not skilled to understand

This is normally the kind of post for my other blog, but I figured I'd share...

I downloaded this song a while ago, but I just synced my ipod to get it just yesterday morning...the day I started my Job study. The song?

My Savior, My God
I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned
I only know that at his right hand
Stands one who is my Savior

I take him at his word and live
Christ died for me, this I read
And in my heart, I find the need
Of him to be my Savior

That he would leave his place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior


Needless to say, I love that song...and its so true...I'm NOT skilled to understand just how incredibly marvelous and big and powerful he is. I have no knowledge of his plans, no idea what he has in store, and absolutely no fathomable idea of how much he truly loves me.

There is no amount of reason or logic to argue my way into his thinking.

There is only one way to go...and that is this:

Trust that he is just and loving and good and perfect.

As long as things are in his hands, nothing can go wrong, right? Even though it feels like everything crumbles around us every day, we can rest assured that he is in control and he has a plan.

Job

I'm currently doing a study on Job right now and am writing my daily chapter studies up on my other blog.

When I am complete, I will condense it, take the major points, and perhaps write about it here. The other blog is a bit more personal and not as critically minded as this one, so travel there at your own risk.
