God Makes No Mistakes
Anyone who understands the truth about God knows that God does not make mistakes. Not a one. Never.
But that is not to say that it does not appear to us that sometimes maybe He has. But it is our perspective that is limited, while God’s is infinite. In the final analysis, the mistake will always be ours, due to our limited knowledge and wisdom (Job 42:1-3; Isaiah 55:8,9).
If you were to think that only people that were unbelievers, or perhaps with only very weak faith, would ever question God’s decisions, plans or deeds, you would be wrong. In fact, the foremost example of faith in the Bible is that of Abraham. But sometimes, even Abraham had questions in his mind about whether God was doing the right thing.
He handled his puzzlement correctly. He was, after all, a man of great faith. He did not foolishly charge God, or mock Him, or rebel against Him, or curse Him. That is what many have done, and are doing, even today. But he did have some serious questions. I think, if we were to admit it, we would all have to say the same thing. Sometimes it is difficult for us to understand why God did this or didn’t do that. That puts us in the company of Abraham, as long as we handle our puzzlement the same way he did. We continue to live by faith even when we do not perceive all of the answers. Being in the company of Abraham is being in pretty good company.
“…and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, ‘And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness,’ and he was called the friend of God.” (James 2:23).
First, Abraham walked with God in his life. Whatever questions Abraham may have had from time to time were not the result of his being hostile in mind toward God. He was not a rebel against the King of all.
Abraham’s attitude was always, “When God speaks, I will respond in faith.” He was quick to hear, not merely listen. In the New Testament, the Bible says, “By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.” (Hebrews 11:8). This was typical of how seriously Abraham took the word of the Lord. That is what faith is all about.
That is exactly what our attitude ought to be as well. We need to have that kind of reverence for the Lord our God. The Lord has spoken in these “last days” to us in His Son (Hebrews 1:1-3). In this message, revealed in the New Testament, we find the revelation of God’s will, and ought to have just as much respect for it as Abraham had for God’s word to him. That word and promise is for us too!
We do not know all the facts, all the end results and we do not have access to all the important information,yes, thatstrue, but when we lack all the answers, we choose to live by faith. We do not have all the facts, but the Lord does. We trust in our God to do what is right as we trust in Him for victory. God makes no mistakes!!!!
You are no accident!
