Christian Clichés

by Rev. Warren Watermeyer

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:9

Christians use some rather odd clichés… “God knows,” “The Lord is at work.”  These clichés are strange, simply because the alternative is not possible! They are used to bring comfort to the hearer and serve as reminders of the truth, but also as reminders of how forgetful we are. 

Once established that God knows and will always know, and cannot but know, why do I allow myself to think anything else?  Once I understand that God is able to work all things together for the good, why do I believe that at some point God is not at work – as if He’s taking a break??

God always knows.  God is always at work.

Allow yourself to catch up to His way and be comforted.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, forgive my forgetfulness and help me to live in Your truth!

Amen
