Faith, Not Answers

trusting God with unanswered questions 1 Corinthians 13:12
When I took the GRE exam to get into seminary, I scored highest on the analytical questions. 

I'm always analyzing things. It's a blessing and a curse. Sometimes I find solid Biblical answers to troubling questions. But I also spend too much time on mysteries. 

Mystery must be a blessing because Scripture contains it.

We turn it into a curse when we become too analytical and decide men like Calvin, Arminius, or some other theologian answered unanswerable questions.

God didn't accidentally leave some of our questions unanswered. Either He knew we wouldn't be able to fully understand the answer here on earth, or He wanted us to trust Him without answers.

When analysis fails, deeper faith begins. 

We see in a glass darkly here on earth and we need to get comfortable with some mystery (1 Corinthians 13:12). 

If mystery causes us to doubt the character of God, then we need more faith, not more answers.
