Are You Uncomfortable With Mystery?

I used to wish I could fully understand God. I was uncomfortable with mystery. Then someone told me something that totally changed my point of view. This 1-minute devotion explains.

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 (Isaiah 55:9). 

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!

  1. I *am* uncomfortable with mysteries! I want to know. NOW! But you make a good point... if I understood everything that I wanted to understand, that would make me think I was God's equal. It takes humility, trust, and faith to let God work in His time.
