Here is my random thought for the day… well my first random thought. I am sure it won’t be me last. Haha
How many times in the Bible do the writers when talking about God say He “cannot be fathomed”?
I am serious. Let me know of you have the number. I feel like I read it all over the Old and New Testament.
My thoughts, we are a people who love to “be in the know”. Why do we spend hours online? on our phone? on Twitter? Instragram? Facebook? Gossiping?
It started in Eden. What was it that the snake told Eve right before she bit- Genesis 3:4-6.
“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
Eve bit because Satan (the snake) manipulated the truth and convinced her that biting the fruit would help her gain wisdom. Her bad for listening. But honestly… I pull an “Eve” nearly everyday.
Back to our issues with God…
God cannot be fathomed.
We cannot understand His will and the “why” behind much of what He does. Find that hard to believe? Well, consider what the snake might be whispering in your ear.
The ironic thing is that the moment we embrace this Truth and trust God- we will know Him more. Again, think back to Eve in the Garden. What would have become of Eve and God’s relationship had she not “taken matters into her own hands” (literally) and bit into the lie? What happened to her relationship because she did bite?
Do you long for peace? Hope? Purpose? To know you are loved?
Let go of the fruit in your hands. Hold tight to faith- trusting that God is who He says in the Bible. Take a bite out of that…
Taste and see that The Lord is good… Psalm 34:8
