Verse of the week

The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and our children forever…” (Deuteronomy 29:29, NIV)

In the exploration of God’s sovereignty, it’s important for us to realize that we cannot pour the fullness of God into the teacup of our minds. In other words as finite beings, it is impossible for us to fully comprehend the infinite and eternal Creator God.

God is mysteriously awesome, and we are invited to sit in this “mystery.” Naturally, our inquisitive nature creates tension within us, because we want to know. Yet, according to this verse, we do not have the capacity to know everything there is to know about God. But God has told us enough. Consequently, trusting God becomes an act of faith. The mistake people make is to use the limitations of their knowledge as an excuse to reject God. Let’s lean into the mystery of God and allow the Holy Spirit to create awe and wonder in us.
