But How God?

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.” - Isaiah 55:8
When it comes to questioning God, sometimes it is not a matter of if He will do it, but how He will do it. As believers, we know God’s Word, and we believe God’s Word. We just struggle with God’s methods. It’s the problem the prophet Isaiah is trying to address in Isaiah 55 when he says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord.”
As Abram quickly approaches the age of 90 with a promise that he’ll have a child, God reassures him, saying, “Abram, look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them, so shall your offspring be.” God responded to Abram’s doubts by reassuring him of God’s plan, God’s purpose, and God’s power. In doing this, He was trying to teach Abram and us an important lesson.
God’s delays are not an indication of God’s denials; and just because we can’t comprehend it does not mean He is unable to perform it. So, rather than forcing God’s will into our time, we need to accept God’s will on His own time. The Bible says, “a day with the Lord is a thousand years.”  
The old saints used to say, “He may not come when you want Him, but He’s always on time.” So, stop tapping your fingers. Stop watching the clock as if God is obligated to move on your time. Sit back and wait on Him because whenever He choices to move, it will be on time and for your best interest. It was this assurance that allowed Abram to rest in God’s will, and it’s this same assurance that can allow you to rest today!
