A helpful challenge

There was a time in my life when I wanted to be really smart & I wanted to be sure that I understood things well. If I didn’t understand something, either I would try harder to understand or I would dismiss what I was unable to grasp. The problem w this strategy is that it limited my experiences, particularly w God. Unfortunately, I’ve met many people who make the same decisions about their understanding w God – they limit their experiences w God because of their limited understanding.
Let’s make the commitment to God that our relationship w God will be based upon the Infinite & not our finite understanding – say yes to God!!



I’m really not sure what you are saying. Yes we have very limited understanding of the things of God. But if God did not want us to understand anything, all He would have had to do is to keep silent and we would all know nothing. Since He has purposefully chosen not to keep silent and to grant to us much of His knowledge through His Grace in His written Word, I believe He expects us to learn it, to understand it and to use it to come up higher to where He is. With all your getting, get understanding (Prov 4:7). I believe that understanding is a stated goal for every Christian.

This is so true…going to have to share this one with my Bible study group! Thank you Sarah, you always have such great articles. Short but powerfull!
