When Jessica was in Sunday School at 5 years-old, she was learning words to describe God. One that quickly became her favorite word was “Incomprehensible.” She would spell it out in sweet, high voice and explain that it meant that He is more than we can fully comprehend.” Then she would proudly recite the Scripture that went with that. “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” (Romans 11:34).
After that little Bible lesson, when situations arose in our lives that made no sense, Joe and I would look at each other and say, “Incomprehensible!” It became our buzz word to trust God. We, as God’s children don’t have all the answers on this side of heaven – but, we do have a God who reveals Himself, showing His glory through and in our lives as we experience His love and mercy to us. The bible tells us that: “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses according to the riches of his grace which he lavished upon us” (Ephesians 1:7).
His love & mercy for us are “Incomprehensible” and yet, He chooses to have relationship with us to demonstrate His love in our lives as we enjoy our child/Father relationship with Him. As John Piper states, “God is most glorified, when we are most satisfied with Him.”
