So lately when I do my devotions I have been taking a good portion of time to just thank God for all that He is and all that He does, reveling the wonder of His Majesty. It is so amazing and astounding to think about and really just blows my mind, leaving me speechless every time. It fills one with such a sense of awe and wonder, even the feeling you get from thinking about God’s incomprehensibility is indescribable!
One morning, I got to thinking about how God’s incomprehensible attributes were one of the things that used to frustrate me the most about God and my faith in Him, even though now it is one of the things I love the most. That thought made me begin to consider all the other people who have probably been just as frustrated with their inability to understand God’s unfathomable characteristics, so much so that they abandoned their faith because of their frustration. When you really start thinking about it though, what kind of God would we serve if we could understand everything about Him? What would set Him apart from us? What would make Him worth praising, worshiping, or dedicating our lives in service to? Absolutely nothing. If I could understand everything about God, I would feel no need to look up to or follow Him because I would know and understand everything about Him–He would be on the same level as me, not some higher being that could possibly have done anything I can’t do myself! It would make all of us gods.
This revelation just made me even more thankful for the fact that I do serve an unfathomable God, because it makes Him worth serving. He who knows all is worth giving my life over to in order to direct me. He that created a master plan for my salvation, sending His very own son to be sacrificed for my sins, is worth dedicating my life to. He who is omnipresent and omniscient is worth being a friend of–someone that knows my every thought and is always with me to comfort me and help me through the trials and tribulations of this life. He who is unchangeable is worth depending upon, for I have an unshakable assurance that He will always love me. He that is holy and incapable of sin is worthy of my complete and total trust because He will never wrong me in any way.
Honestly, without God and all His mysterious characteristics, I don’t know where I would be. He has always been there to comfort and guide me when no one else was. He knows how I am feeling and what I need before I do, and without me having to explain it. My God is truly an awesome God and is worthy of all the praise and worship we could ever give Him, and more!
So for anyone out there feeling frustrated, think about what it would be like if you could understand everything about God–it’s really quite the eye-opener.
