I have chosen this passage from Ecclesiates 11 as my verse of the week, because it reminds of how powerful (yet mysterious) the Lord is!
Just think about it: Each time that you think that have God figured out, He surprises you, doesn’t He? Pulls a spiritual fast one on you?
While we certainly can be acquainted with the character of God – His goodness, compassion, love, forgiveness, soveignty, wisdom, etc. – we can neither anticipate nor necessarily explain (with human insight) all that the Lord says and does.
Let that sink in for a moment. Don’t linger on it for too long, though – otherwise, it will begin to mess with your mind!
In an interesting spiritual conundrum, the Lord is both deeply knowable, but also deeply mysterious. That is, He desires to have a personal relationship with each of us, and yet we could spend all of eternity seeking after Him. and never come to the end of who He is.
So, rather than try to fully understand this, I choose to accept it, and focus my attention on the last part of this verse: “God, who does all things.” Yes, it is sufficient for me to know that He does all things – that is enough. ✝️
