with God

Eccl 11:5

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.

As a parent you can look at your newborn baby and think, "I used to be that small."
Even looking at a baby who is just born it's so hard to phantom that this child grew inside of a woman, including its hair and it's bones, along with its skin and eyes and fingernails. Each and every artery was formed and placed in just the right place from the heart throughout the body.
What about the wind, we can't see the wind but we see it blowing the trees and feel it as it hits us. It also affects the waves of the sea and the weather.
Neither one of these do we doubt happen because we see the effects with our eyes.

What about the things that God does? We tend to forget that God has created each person in the womb and has directed and created the wind each day and night.
But we are so used to them, even though we don't understand how they happen, we tend to forget about our Creator and that He is the one doing these things.

Maybe you are going through things in your life right now that you just don't understand why or how they are happening.
You think and ponder on how you will get yourself out of this one.
It seems like everything you tried or thought of just didn't work. As a last resort we call out to God for help. Then all of a sudden from nowhere (so it seems) everything works out in a way you never thought of.
Just as you can't determine how the baby will grow in the womb, nor create the wind and direct it's path, so you can't control God and what He is doing or is going to be doing in your life.
Sure you can murder a baby by aborting it before it's birth to stop to growing process and you can build a shelter so the wind has no effect on you, you can also turn your back on the Lord and prevent Him from working in your life.
But if you just wait long enough the baby will soon be born and the wind will blow on your face.
And if you wait on the Lord He will work in your life too.
So stop trying to second guess God or try to understand what He will do and just let Him do it. Just as He will allow a child to be born as you are reading this, and the wind to blow outside your window.
