Are You Uncomfortable With Mystery?

It would be nice to have an answer to every question we have about God and life, but it’s not possible.

Romans 11:33 says: "Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!"  

God is infinitely complex—beyond our limited human understanding.

I used to be uncomfortable with this mystery. Then someone told me it was a sign of God's greatness. If I completely understood Him, He'd be my equal!

God assures us we have every answer we need to live a godly life  (2 Peter 1:3) and we have His wonderful book of Love Notes to guide us. But we aren't capable of understanding everything God understands.

I'm grateful that God is 100% wise, just, loving and pure. And I'm learning it's more important to know the God who has all the answers than to have all the answers myself!
