“I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are mere details.” –Albert Einstein
There is always more to discover in this world, although people have been finding, inventing and exploring for thousands of years.
Here are some recent quotes from news headlines:
- “The exact size of the universe is still unknown.”
- “Scientists have discovered 1,451 new species in our oceans this past year.”
- “Until recently, no one knew that the smaller-than-microscopic pentaquark existed.”
Likewise, there is always more to discover about the God of the universe.
The riches, wisdom and knowledge of God are deeper than I can imagine. His ways are inscrutable, meaning impossible to understand or interpret. When I think have God’s ways figured out, Isaiah 55:8 reminds me: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.”
But the eternal, infinite, inscrutable God wants to be known.
James 4:8 says that if we draw near to God, He will draw near to us.
Paul prays in Ephesians 1:17 “…that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.”
I can pursue knowing the infinite God through His Word. There is so much yet to know, and it makes me praise our deep, rich, wise, and glorious God.
“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways! For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor?”
Or who has given a gift to Him that He might be repaid? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever.” Romans 11:33-36
