“Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than heaven-what can you do? Deeper than Sheol-what can you know? Job 11:7 NKJV
Job’s friend makes the case that God’s wisdom is unsearchable. That’s a no brainer!
I am amazed by people who look for answers to irrelevant questions but neglect the two that matter the most. Who is Jesus? How can I get to know Him better?
I know a guy who always seems to shift our conversations to a discussion of where he thinks God lives or theories about aliens. He spends a lot of time watching television shows that speculate about such things but never opens up a bible!
There is nothing wrong with doing things for fun. I watch sports, work crossword puzzles and build jig saw puzzles. We should not spend our time focusing on things that contradict the truth of God’s Word. Those things draw us away from Jesus!
God made everything we need to know about Him available. He put it all down in the bible. It is His written revelation to His beloved, us!
God has no limits. There are certain things He chooses not to do. He chooses not to violate our free will. He chooses not to force His love upon us. He chooses not to remember our sins when we repent and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior!
God does not fit into a box of human understanding. He uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. He uses the weak things of the world to shame the mighty!
I have asked God for things I never thought He would do. I was amazed when He did. I also thought I knew exactly what God would do at times. I felt pretty foolish. I’ve learned not to limit my prayers. I’ve also learned not to take God for granted.
God will pour out wisdom where and when He chooses. He will also withhold it when it suits His purpose!
When I first started writing the Lord would give me a word to share. Sometimes I woke up with a message on my heart. Yesterday I sat down at my desk and asked God to give me a message to share. The Lord told me to study, Lol!
There are things too deep for us to understand. We can’t go up to the heavens to search out the answers. We can’t go down to the grave to seek them. We can seek Jesus. He will show us what we need to know!
You do not need to know how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. You do need to know Jesus. You don’t need to perform miracles before the multitudes. If you surrender to Jesus He will give you what you need to serve Him!
Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life. Jesus will reveal everything you need to know when you need to know it!
