Do you have a good understanding? Do you grasp new ideas easily? Do you continually seek to understand? Do you have multiple interests you seek to know more about? Would you like to understand God better?
We all have interests for which we would like to gain a better understanding. Some of those interests are very important. Others not so much. But if it is a true interest of ours, we will take time to better understand it.
There is One whose understanding we can not fathom—God. Of course, that doesn’t mean we should not make an effort to better understand. It simply means we are incapable of having the same understanding as God with our limited human brains.
Stop and think of all the questions you have heard people ask. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why did God allow my parent or sibling get this disease? Why does God make things so difficult? Why doesn’t God bless me with more?
What is the simple answer to these questions? We don’t know. We don’t understand how God works. We don’t have His understanding. We don’t see all the pieces and how they are being put together. Will we ever understand? I believe we will. When we are face-to-face with God, we will understand. I also believe it won’t matter at that point.
God knows what is happening with each person at every moment of every day. He sees all the connections. He knows that one person performing one task has an effect on multiple other people. He knows the impact, what the other person will do, and how that will affect someone else. Can you imagine? Seeing the billions of connections among billions of people, and knowing how all those interactions will play out? It is no wonder we cannot fathom God’s understanding. All the more reason to trust God.
I pray we all continue to seek a better understanding of God. I pray we ponder the wonders God is doing in this world. I pray each of us trust God, knowing He knows all. Seek understanding. Be in awe of God. Trust God knows it all. Trust Him with your whole heart.
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
