5 As you do not know what is the way of the wind, Or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child, So you do not know the works of God who makes everything. 6 In the morning sow your seed, And in the evening do not withhold your hand; For you do not know which will prosper, Either this or that, Or whether both alike will be good. (Ecclesiastes 11:5-6)
Pride is subtle. With knowledge comes the temptation to be arrogant in our knowledge. With all of mankind’s advances, the truth is there are many, many things hidden from our sight. Especially is that true about “the works of God” our Creator. Only as He has revealed Himself in His word can we confidently say we know what God has done, is doing and will do. We take courage in this and choose to live by faith in our God who does all things well. Do your work today with all your might. There will be ups and downs in your life, but through them all know that “all things work together for good to those who love God” (Rom. 8:28).
