Being God's child

“For this is what the Lord says: … As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you…” Isaiah 66:12-13

One of the blessings of motherhood for me, is that I’ve learnt more of what it means to be a child of God through having my own children. I wanted to be the kind of mother who always took time to answer her children’s questions. Very quickly I made an interesting discovery. Children are big enough to ask the questions, long before they are big enough to understand the answers. Sometimes I was disappointed that I couldn’t always explain things in ways they could understand, but I noticed that it didn’t bother them. They accepted the fact that there were things that they didn’t understand.

At those times I stop and wonder if God has the same problem with me. I’m big enough to ask God questions, especially “why” questions. Why did this happen today? Why do I struggle with these problems? Why do people suffer? But perhaps I’m not big enough to understand His answers. Isaiah 55: 8-9 tells me that God’s thoughts are higher than my thoughts and His ways are higher than my ways.

When I struggle to understand God’s purposes in my life I need to believe that God is good, He is in charge and He knows what He is doing, then I need to trust Him; just like my children trust me.
