Eccl 11:5 As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
Eccl 11:5 God’s ways are as mysterious as the pathway of the wind and as the manner in which a human spirit is infused into the little body of a baby while it is yet in its mother’s womb. TLB
In the middle of the subject of kingdom investment principles, Solomon adds a journal entry that appears to be out of place. How do mysteries like the unseen wind movements and the unseen developments in the womb have to do with the subject? The point of this verse is that although we may not see the workings behind the processes that affect and even determine our lives, we know that God is the Author and Designer of them. We do not know “the works of God who maketh all” but we do know that God makes it all happen. Should I give my tithe to the Lord when I cannot see how I will be able to make ends meet? Should I place the outcome of my career into the hands of God in an unstable economy? Can I trust God to work in my children’s lives to keep them safe and on the right path? Yes. Invest confidently in God and His kingdom. He will create order out of what looks like disorder. Trust Him. He has been in the business a lot longer than you and has a failure percent of zero. Can you compete with that?
