What is the meaning of the verse, "the Lord works in mysterious ways"?
Simply put: The Almighty can do anything He wants...whenever He wants and His abilities are endless. He works in mysterious ways, because we cannot watch Him working behind the scenes nor can we comprehend His ways. We can see the results of something that He has done, but can we really comprehend His magnificence? No, therefore He works in mysterious ways (at least it's mysterious to us).
Well, first of all, it isn't a verse in the Bible. It's from a poem by William Cowper (1731-1800):
“God works in a mysterious way / His wonders to perform;"
I suppose folks have heard it so often that they assumed it was in the Bible.
We can say that God works in mysterious ways because we never know what is his plan for us. We may not understand his will or his works but one thing is for sure, it is way greater than what we ask from him. It is all part of his plans for us.
William Cowper was the author of a song entitled "God Moves in a Mysterious Way. This is an axiom, not a Biblical statement or verse.
