I Don't Know

September 28, 2017

 

 

Have you ever felt completely clueless?  Have you ever been in a conversation with someone, all the while shaking your head and thinking, “I have no idea what you are talking about”?

 

It isn’t pleasant to feel an un-intelligence about a subject, to feel ignorant.  It is embarrassing when someone asks me about cooking something, decorating, etc.—my scope of knowledge somehow bypassed these areas.  Basically, we don’t like to feel stupid. 

 

However, as I watched a program the other day with a gentleman relating in a very intelligent manner insight into the book of Revelation, I realized that it was a pleasant feeling to not completely “get” everything.

 

I found myself thankful that I am not able to completely explain my God and His Word.  If I were able to do so easily, would that make Him explainable?  If I were able to unravel all of the mysteries hidden in His Word, wouldn’t that mean that I have completely figured the Lord out…that He no longer can amaze me? 

 

Just so you know, I have not completely figured Him out…and neither has anyone else on the planet.  We serve a big, amazing, mind-blowing, eternal, invisible, powerful God.  There is an infinite amount of “I don’t know”, and an infinite amount of “I want to find out.”  What you can’t explain, I dare you to choose to believe…and love.

 

Father, You surpass my understanding.  Maybe that is why I shouldn’t lean on it—I should lean on Yours.  Please continue to blow my mind, yet draw me to know You as much as I am able.  You amaze me, Lord.  In Jesus’ Name.  Amen.

Isaiah 40:28
