November 17

Long ago I gave up trying to figure God out. I think He wants it that way.

Over 2000 years ago He revealed Himself in the form of a baby. The Infinite One became human. Fully human. Fully divine.

I don’t understand it all. I accept it though as truth. Believe it? Yes. Understand it? No.

But even though to know God almost seems like an effort in futility at times, the hunger and desire to know Him, to probe deeper, should never stop.

Going along with that unquenchable desire to know Him is the reality that God does far more than I can ask or imagine. And He surprises me! He never ceases to amaze me.

I was reminded of that this morning when I read Romans 11: 33-36. (Please look it up in your Bible). A statement. Two rhetorical questions. A statement. Short. Simple. To the point truth.

God is amazing. I never want to close the book on that and say, “I understand.” I want to keep being amazed. I want to keep being surprised. I don’t want to settle for settle for. We sing a song with the chorus which says, “May I never lose the wonder/O the wonder of Your glory.” I simply ask that I will never lose the wonder I have for God. May my lack of knowledge spur me on to keep probing and stay on my quest. I hope you will always keep the “amazement factor” alive in your heart.

    The moment I stop being amazed by God… is when I have failed to worship and devote myself to the one true God.
    Thanks again for a great reminder today!

  2. I pray each day to live with wonder and awe at God’s unfathomable power and might, and to give thanks to Him for all I am and have.
    Blessings, Bill!

    Father, may I never lose being amazed by You, and just being blown away by who You are, and what You can do. I don’t have to understand everything, and I have questions, things I cannot wrap my head around. The yearning to learn more about You, and the desire to draw closer to You, is all I want to do. May the glory, honor and praise be lifted up to You always.
