Have you ever experienced explaining something to someone but no matter how hard you tried, they just didn’t get it? At times, the matter can be a big deal (at least, from your perspective), but to them, you are simply whining and asking for attention, so they shrug you off.
It feels horrible to be misunderstood. It could make you feel small, weak, and fragile.
But thankfully, there is someone who understands us perfectly. The One who created me, knows me better than I do, and much better than any other person in this world.
The Psalmist says, “O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether” (Psalm 139:1-4).
So, don’t take it to heart when people don’t understand you. Instead, be heartened that God understands — perfectly.
