Why Doesn’t God Make Sense?

Are you frustrated in what God is asking of you because
it just doesn't make sense?

Why Doesn't God Make Sense

As Christians, we live in an upside-down kingdom: God's kingdom! Logic is often out the window when it comes to what God has called us to do. His kingdom doesn't run by our worlds constrictive logic-based ways. Often it is just the opposite of what the world tells you makes since. And since the world didn't make itself, I'm always going to look to its creator to ask how life runs best.

Jesus taught a lot on this while here, saying things like, "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them."{Luke 6} Non-believers won't blink and eye at someone who loves those who love them; it just makes sense. When we start loving beyond our logical flesh, things get real up in here. lol When we obey even when everything says its stupid, God is able to do the illogical in our lives. You know, those stories where all we can do it share how He has worked then sit back with goose-bumps and watch as those we share it with get them, too.

Then Paul reaffirms, in 2nd Corinthians, the "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." teaching by saying, I've lived it and am here to tell ya "I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties." Paul fully trust that God's power is only completed when we rest in our own pile of crap and know His grace for it all is enough. Enough? As in, I don't need to fix all of this. I don't have to stay up night after night reworking some master plan to get myself out of this pile of filth; even when I got myself into it.

God's ways will never make sense to the world {and its people}. For real, if how you're living is never questioned by someone who doesn't know Christ, you're doing it wrong. I mean, who does that? Love the people who hate them and then brag about it when they get hurt by them. Get existed about the inevitable tough-times we all go through. Weird, right?!

Are you seeking God's will through the frustration? Well, strap on your seat-belt because this roller coaster has lots of loops! For more on seeking God, HERE's a Seeking God Challenge my hubs did and tomorrow I will share How to Know God is "Calling" You.
