Lift Up Your Eyes - God Understand

It should fill us with joy that infinite wisdom guides the affairs of the world...that infinite wisdom directs every event, brings order out of confusion, and light out of darkness, and to those who love God, causes all things, whatever be their present aspect and apparent tendency, to work together for good. - J.L. Dagg

I lift up mine eyes to the quiet hills, and my heart to the Father's throne; in all my ways, to the end of days, the Lord will preserve His own. - Timothy Dudley-Smith

Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe. - Augustine

Psalm 123:1-2 "I lift my eyes to you, O God, enthroned in heaven. We keep looking to the Lord our God for His mercy."

Psalm 147:3-5 "He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds, He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension! No, the Lord's delight is in those who fear Him, those who put their hope in His unfailing love."

Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

Psalm 124:8 "Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth."

Everything God does is love - even when we do not understand Him. - Basilea Schlink

God, who made the wind, the flowers, the tiny lizards - knows me. He understands my daily struggles. He watches over me when I sleep. He is there: day and night, in every season of my life. He knows the number of the stars - and gently heals my broken heart. He delights in me! Why would I not trust? When I sin, I am not trusting. When I worry, I am not trusting. His ways are perfect and He will perfectly show me the way. I may not understand Him or all of His ways - but He understand me.
