Let Go and Let God

I am so overwhelmed to know that God delights in uncommon, illogical, supernatural manifestation of His power, sovereignty and divinity.  God's ideal does not need to make logical human sense.

Below are a few biblical examples of God defying every human logic/reasoning:

Exodus 15:22-25
Then Moses made Israel set out from the Red Sea, and they went into the wilderness of Shur. They went three days in the wilderness and found no water.
 When they came to Marah, they could not drink the water of Marah because it was bitter; therefore it was named Marah.
And the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” And he cried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a log, and he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.

Human thinking/reasoning: This water is bitter!! How can a log make this water drinkable? this log is not sugar?! If anything, it may make things even worse.
Our Sovereign and Omnipotent God AnswersRead Job 38-40.

Genesis 41:38-43
Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you.  You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.  And Pharaoh said to Joseph, See, I have set you over all the land of EgyptThen Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.

Human thinking/reasoning: It is Impossible for an Israelite, slave and ex-prisoner, to become a ruler in Egypt, second in command to an Egyptian King. No one would want such an individual with such a past history to rule their people or rise to prominence in their kingdom.
Our Sovereign and Omnipotent God AnswersRead Luke 1:50-52 and Luke 18:27

John 9:6-7
When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.

Human thinking/reasoning:  Spit and mud is gross. Why couldn't he just speak and command healing like he did for so many before?
Our Sovereign and Omnipotent God Answers: Read Romans 11:33

Matthew 14:17-20

 And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”18 He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. 20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.

Human thinking/reasoning: There is no way we can feed all these people with just two fish and five loaves.  These people can just go to their homes and eat. We don't need to feed them. We should eat these loaves and fishes ourselves after all we are the ones ministering to them all day we deserve it.
Our Sovereign and Omnipotent God Answers: Read Ephesians 3:20 and Luke 6:38

Whatever it is that God want's to do in our lives, let us let go of our own understing, calculations, timelines so that we can Trust and Obey Gods instructions and directions. God's way is exciting, fun, always a blow your mind experience. Everything God does, He does it Best.

1Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him
