It’s Okay Not to Understand Why


When learning to deal with a chronic illness, it is okay not to understand why this is happening to you. I know today’s verse is like yesterday’s Scripture.

I chose it to help emphasize how not understanding causes us to rely on and to trust God.

Bible Verse

Isaiah 55:8-9 (KJV), “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.”

What the Verse Means

It is okay not to understand why this is happening to you because God knows. We can trust God to know what is best for us.

Pray Using Scripture

  • Heavenly Father, I ask that you show me your ways.
  • Lord, I pray that my thoughts would be your thoughts.
  • Help me God to submit to your thoughts and ways.
