Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. Psalm 147:5
Desiring to be understood is the desire of most people. Every one has something to say and want to be understood in what they are saying, but often are not. This crosses all nations and every person on this earth.
Young children get frustrated because they cannot say what they are thinking. Teen-agers feel as though their parents do not understand them and their struggles. Parents feel as though their children do not understand why they want what they want. Workers feel as though the bosses don’t understand their struggles. And the list goes on of misunderstanding.
With misunderstanding, there has been many fights and wars. Loss of friendship and relationships occur over not understanding.
The author of this psalm realizes how great and powerful God is. With this great power, God also has limitless understanding.
It is easy for a believer to think that God does not understand his struggles. God is God and is perfect and Jesus never sinned, so how could He really understand?
Even though Jesus was perfect, He walked on this earth like every other person–as a human being that could fall, yet He did not. Jesus was tempted just like every person, yet, He chose not to sin. He felt hunger, pain, suffering, ridicule, rejection, hate, violence, temptation and everything else that a person can feel and experience. His understanding is without limit.
God understands what every person is going through, but He also knows the path to take to get through every situation. He is all powerful and can work all things out for the good of those who love and follow Him. There is nothing so difficult that God cannot bring a person through it.
You, just like Jesus and every other person, will have to go through tough times. These tough times can be just simple temptation to great difficulties in life. You are not alone in this.
The best part about it is that God is with you and understands what you are feeling and going through. Lean on Him for strength and guidance to keep moving forward.
If God has the understanding to create this world and sustain every living molecule perfectly in order, then He can understand what you are going through. Tell Him what you are feeling. He already has a plan for your life, trust Him in understanding you and follow that plan.
I pray today that you will know God’s great power in your life; that you will tell God all that is on your heart; that you will know God understands you perfectly; and that God will remove all fear of misunderstanding.
