For who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice? Romans 11:34

We are relieved from the responsibility of trying to figure out life’s trials and tribulations. We haven’t been given enough information to decipher the code. Jesus put it like this:
I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it (Luke 18:17).
Some of us have carried resentment against God for years and we need to forgive God for those heartaches that we have charged to His account. Maybe it almost sounds blasphemous to suggest that the we need to forgive God. He has done no wrong and does not need our forgiveness. But the source of bitterness must be admitted before it can be cleansed. There is no better way to get rid of it than to absolve the Lord of whatever we have blamed him for, and then ask His forgiveness for our lack of faith. It’s called reconciliation, and it is the only way you will ever be entirely free.
