Yesterday I wrote about God knows our unknowns but do we really know God’s unknowns?
God truly is a mystery whether we believe in Him or not. His decisions are sovereign even when we don’t like them. Just think about some of our own choices in life being stubborn, disobedient, or tried to please our parents, teachers, or coaches in every way. ‘Father knows best’ or ‘we shall see’ were phrases we heard growing up. Wisdom truly does come with age.
“Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! For who can know the Lord ’s thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice?
Romans 11:33-34 NLT
The man Job who served the Lord faithfully in the Old Testament truly wrestled with God as with Joseph who was thrown in prison. Daniel sent to the lions den for being loyal to God.
We can argue and try to justify Gods actions and say, “I don’t deserve this” yet your in this trial and facing tribulation.
We must remember God will not be mocked! Remember how God was scoffed at and ridiculed when Noah began building the Ark? Noah was laughed at and was the talk of the town. God warned everybody about the coming judgment and it seemed so ridiculous. The earth will never flood! Haha! Life is Good and the economy is rolling! America is too powerful to fall. Really? We are drifting into unknown territorities of fear, uncertainty, indecisiveness, corruption, and arrogance, etc. ( This is not a political comment).
“By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith”.
Hebrews 11:7 NIV
Jesus God son has warned us to be ready for His return. “Nobody knows the day or the hour…”. The key is to be watching and ready at all times.
I know you can laugh at this post or make a sassy joke but the reality is God’s Unknown can be known if we trust Him and take him at His word.
A little strong today but something to think and to pray about today my friend.
