Verse of the Day

“Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths of the grave—what can you know? [Job 11:7-8 – NIV 1984]

I grew up reading mysteries—one of the many idiosyncrasies I inherited from my parents. Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, John Dickson Carr, Robert van Gulik, Dorothy Sayers, Clayton Rawson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, etc.—I’ve read (actually it’s more like devoured) them all. One thing about a mystery novel: by the last page it’s always solved (either by the reader or the fictional detective). But in real life, there are mysteries that are never solved. Sometimes mystery surrounds something because it’s unknowable. The best example is the Lord our God. As today’s passage tells us, He is the ultimate mystery!

The fact that God is a mystery is not a bad thing. Never forget that God’s Word reveals all we need to know about God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. And we Believers are blessed with the indwelling of the Spirit that helps us in our understanding of God’s ways. We also need to resist the secular world and the belief that everything is knowable; that nothing is beyond mankind’s grasp. This just ain’t so! We are not meant to know everything, at least this side of Heaven. So, give thanks for God; He’s my favorite mystery and I’m sure He’s yours too!
