Inner-Tubing With God: Understanding Gods Ways

It is so obvious that God works and thinks on a totally different level than we do. I have spent most of my life in my left logical side of my brain trying to figure out God, people, events and reason. Only to be left frustrated, irritated and emotionally dehydrated.

What makes it most interesting is, we look back and the flow of our lives makes perfect sense and in God's perfect timing. The question is, "Is it possible to live in a state of mind where we just go with God's flow, without trying to grab hold and figure life out our way? The bible says it is. "The ways of God are without fault. The Lord's words are pure. He is a shield to those who trust him." Psalm 18:30.

I love inner tubing down a river. You have no control of what direction you face, the current sets your pace and you are directed by nature's obstacles through the water. While you have absolutely no say in your destiny down the river there is such a comfort sitting on that tube floating on top of the waves feeling that powerful body of water underneath you.

A question I ask myself is, "Why do I even think I need to understand God's ways?" Do we think our ways are better? Sure we do at times. Do we need to think about how we are going to get down that river the most effective way on that tube? Absolutely not. We just know in our hearts if we stay on that tube(word of God) we will have a fun and interesting ride down the river and eventually get taken to where we want to go.

When we finally get to the point where we fully comprehend and ACCEPT the fact that God's ways are not our ways, and our plans are not better than God's, we tend to enjoy the river of life more and look forward to the journey ahead without uncertainty.

There's a chance God is working in your life above water or in the currents below right this very second. Do you need to fully understand what he is doing? Probably not! Grab that inner tube, get on top along side God(study the word) hold on in trust and let the river of his Holy Spirit give you a ride of a lifetime this week. And what's even more fun is taking someone with you!!!
