“Too Awesome To Comprehend”
By Zach Wood
Romans 11:33 NLT
Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!
There are a lot of things in life that we consider great. We think movies are great. We think food is great. We think some songs are great. We see a fireworks display on July 4 and think it is great. We think some people are great who have neat talents and abilities.
When we see a good movie, we often wonder how they did the special affects. When we eat good food, we wonder what the secret ingredient is and how they cooked to such perfection. We hear a great song and we wonder what the inspiration was behind writing the song. When we see a fireworks show, we wonder how those things look so cool in the sky. When we see people perform, we often wonder how they’ve been blessed so much to be that good.
So often, we cannot understand why things are so great. We wonder and try to figure out why. We research and we talk to others to try to understand better. We want to know and we want to be filled with the knowledge to understand better.
As we so often want to know and learn these things, nothing can be better or greater than knowing our awesome and wonderful God! He is too awesome to fully comprehend. No matter how much we read His Word or how much time we spend getting to know Him more, we will never be able to comprehend Him. His ways are just so beyond what we can understand. He will always be a mystery to us while we are in this life and here on this earth. One day, we will fully understand all of His ways and glory.
I want to encourage each one of us to take time to just pause and consider how amazing and great our God is. Take time to just be in awe of Him and to know that He is so awesome and so far beyond anything we can understand. This is a good thing! We so often get frustrated because we cannot understand things. Well, in the sense of not being able to comprehend God, that is great that He is so awesome that we cannot fully understand!
Next time you find yourself totally amazed at something you hear, watch or eat, be reminded that God is more awesome and greater than anything we can experience here on earth.
