You Have No Idea

It says in today’s passage, “You have no idea how God works.” This statement was made by Jesus to Peter. Like many Jews at that time, Peter had a very different understanding of the Messiah. But this message can be said of us many times as well.

Too often we try to put things in God’s mouth, we try to say how God thinks, and yet we have no idea how He works apart from His Word and what He shows us through the Spirit. When you encounter something that is not clearly spelled out in the Bible, there is no way to say, “God says…,” just as there is no way to predict how God will move in a situation. There are many He might perhaps possibilities, but are you for certain?

Let us agree that we serve an amazing indescribable God. Let us remind ourselves today that we do not always know what God is doing or how He is works, but we can always trust in Him.

 

“But Peter grabbed him in protest. Turning and seeing his disciples wavering, wondering what to believe, Jesus confronted Peter. ‘Peter, get out of my way! Satan, get lost! You have no idea how God works.'” – Mark 8:32-33 [MSG]
