When Jessica was in Sunday School at 5 years old, she was learning words to describe God. One that quickly became her favorite was Incomprehensible. She would spell it out in her sweet, high voice as she explained what it meant: “God is more than we can fully comprehend.” Then she would proudly recite the Scripture in Romans 11:34: “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?”
After that little Bible lesson, Joe and I would look at each other and say, “Incomprehensible!”, when situations arose that made no sense. That became our buzzword to trust God.
As God’s children we surely 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.
His love & mercy for us are Incomprehensible and yet, He chooses to have a relationship with us to demonstrate His love in our lives as we enjoy our child/Father relationship with Him. John Piper states, “God is most glorified when we are most satisfied with Him.”
