My God blows my mind!
Let us just take one word, the first one …. WONDERFUL.
It means amazement, surprising, astonishing, awesome, fascinating.
This is the God you will talk to today.
He calms the storm – “The men were amazed and said ‘what kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!’
He walks on the water – ‘Then those who were on the boat worshipped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.’
He preaches – ‘All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips, ‘isn’t this Joseph’s son?’
He is wise – ‘He said to them, ‘Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.’ When they heard this they were amazed.’
I cannot work Him out, I cannot get a hold of Him.
I carry a contradiction in my life of seeking to see someone invisible; of knowing one who is unknowable; of understanding One who is beyond understanding; of being satisfied and dissatisfied at the same time, like Peter wanting desperately to follow Him and be a disciple but at the same time crying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinner.”
He blows my mind! He is WONDERFUL.
The Apostle Paul wrote the great doctrines of faith, justification, righteousness, adoption, sovereignty of God, surely He has understood God, surely He has it all worked out. But immediately after these doctrines, he writes:
Oh the depths of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God;
How u searchable his judgments and his paths beyond tracing out, Romans 11:33.
At one time he tells Timothy, “I know whom I have believed’ but also says to the Corinthians, “I know in part’ and to the Philippians, ‘I want to know Christ’.
There is so much more.
HE IS WONDERFUL.
Let’s not rule out the wonder of God. I’m all for restoring this. For He blows my mind!
