Unlimited Understanding

After working on his term paper for many weeks, a student submitted his carefully written product to his professor. When it was returned, there was a note on the front of it that read, “Your work should be written so carefully and thoroughly that even the most ignorant can understand it.”

Indignant, he went to his professor, pointed to the note and said, “I certainly agree with you. Which part can’t you understand?”

It is easy to be misunderstood by others. Sometimes it is difficult for us to make our thoughts and feelings clear. Sometimes the words just won’t come out right and the thoughts get jammed.

Even though there are times when it seems that others do not understand us, there is One whose understanding is unlimited – our heavenly Father.

When we have a problem He gives us His promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us.

When life seems overwhelming, we have the assurance that He will never leave us nor forsake us.

When faced with failure, we know that His grace is sufficient.

We have His Word that He not only understands, but that His understanding is beyond measure!

Prayer: Help us, Father, to trust in Your grace and goodness, Your power and presence, Your care and concern. Enable us to believe that You will bring victory from defeat, joy from sorrow and help when life seems hopeless. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Psalm 147:5
