Have you ever pondered The Mysteries of God found in Life? I know I have. I actually fear those who say they have a complete understanding of God and what He wants for His children. One of my favorite books found in the Bible is Ecclesiastes.
The second Book of Wisdom written by one of the smartest men who ever lived on earth, King Solomon (outside of Jesus Christ; of course!).
In King Solomon’s well-known teachings on “There is a season…” found in the third chapter of Ecclesiastes, he writes, “He (God) hath made everything beautiful in His time; also He hath set the world in their heart, so that NO man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.”
Did you see that? It clearly states, “NO man can find out the work that God maketh…” I don’t know about you, but that makes me feel a little better about the mysteries of life and to know for certain that these men and women who seem to have God all figured out….Actually…Don’t!
God has put the “world” in man’s heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.” (Isaiah 55:8 KJV). If man could “figure” God out, then there would be no need for “faith,” and the Bible teaches that, “Without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God.” (Hebrews 11:6). “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things seen.” Even the very makings of the world and all of its belongings are mysteries of God.
We also learn that it was by faith that Noah prepared the ark having never seen rain before. And, by faith Abraham obeyed the voice of God and left his home, occupation, and family not knowing where he was going. And, it is through faith that we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which we do see. (Hebrews 11). Oh, the mysteries of God. We are surrounded by the mysteries of God.
And, it is senseless on our part to try to figure them out. To do so, robs us of our Peace of mind. It is simply Not in God’s plan that we figure them out!
Today, why not enjoy the many many mysteries of God? How do tiny ants pick up and carry items two and three times their weight? How do sound waves actually travel and work? How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky? How big is our galaxy? How many stars are there? Why are snow fakes never the same? How does one small seed bring forth so many flowers? How do birds fly? Why is a zebra just a horse with white and black stripes? Why do we dig for potatoes and pick tomatoes? And, where is God from?
I’m sure you have your own list of mysteries, as well. Yet, we can rest in the full assurance that those things which are mysteries unto us are well-known and without mystery to God. Put all of your mysteries into God’s hand and enjoy serving an all-knowing, omnipresent God….After all, isn’t that what the word “god” actually means? One who possesses a superior knowledge, strength, and power far above that of mankind. Wow! I don’t know about you, but that sends a chill up and down my spine….The exciting Mysteries of God.
I hope today’s blog might be a source of encouragement and a tool to help strengthen your faith in these troublesome and mysterious times in our lives. As the old hymn states, “I don’t know about tomorrow….but I know who holds tomorrow….and today….and yesterday…and next week…and next year… And, I know who holds my hand…
The wonderful, awesome Mysteries of God.
Thank you sweet Jesus.
Remember, God Loves You.
