Mysterious Ways

Updated on February 16, 2012

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

Even though there is no scripture that actually says "God works in mysterious ways" we know this is true from all the evidence of other scriptures. (Psalm 77 is one of them).


Sometimes we think we know what God should do or exactly how he should answer our prayers. But most times God works in mysterious ways. Sometimes God will place us at certain locations of employment or maybe He will use our vehicle breaking down and you riding the bus to meet someone. God uses other human beings to help us all the time as well. They don't even have to have the same faith as you and they don't even have to have the same lifestyle. God knows what we need and exactly where we are in our walk with him.

When I needed to talk to someone, God knew that I wouldn't actually take time to go to a Christian counsellor or any counsellor. God has used my co-worker to help me many, many times. We have helped each other. She is an excellent listener and has a merciful spirit. I love working with her and when we have time off we miss each other. She has a muslim background and I am a Christian. God works in mysterious ways.

Many of you on the hubpages have also helped me a lot. You are so encouraging and your hubs are inspirational.

      Who could have forseen that God would use the persecutor of the church to write 2/3 of the new testament? Or fishermen to change the world? You are right, He is mysterious!

      Sister Sky; Truly God does work in mysterious ways, for even though he closes a door, he will open a window, thus allowing outside help to come into us in a time of need.

      Brother Dave.
