Day 6

Day 6 Reading – Job Chapters 10-13
Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
They are higher than the heavens above—what can you do?
They are deeper than the depths below—what can you know?
Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea.
Job 11:7-9
We spend so much time wanting to know.
We spend countless hours trying to understand.
We waste so much time searching for answers.

When will we stop long enough to allow God to speak to us?

The mystery of God can be known, but I am not sure we will ever understand.

Paul said, “we see through a glass dimly, but then we will see clearly.”

The time will come to grasp all that is God, but no matter how academic, or theologocal, we get we will never be able to reduce God to a list of knowns. God is greater than that. God is greater than us.

So, in those moments of the unknown – Have Faith.

And spend some time with God in conversation (that means from time to time you must be quiet long enough to allow God to speak to you!).

I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
