GOD ACCESSIBLE, BUT NOT CONTROLLABLE!
"Just as you do not know the path of the wind, nor how the bones are formed in the womb of the pregnant woman, so you do not know the works of God, who does all things."
(Ecclesiastes 11: 5)
Thought: I don't know. Do not know! This is one of the most difficult phrases for us to use. But, when thinking about God and His ways, it is the only thing we can say. What we know about God is just what He, in His grace, chose to reveal to us. He is the Mystery of mysteries. He is the supreme knowable Unknown. But what we know about him, what he revealed to us through Jesus, is that he is loving and merciful.
Prayer: I can only offer my praise to the Lord. When I consider the vastness of the universe from which our little blue planet spins, I am amazed by its wonderful complexity and sovereignty. At the same time, Aba Pai, I thank you for approaching us. The Lord is better than anything I know, the God who transcends space and time, and also God my Father who is always near. Thank you for being accessible but not penetrable, available but not controllable. I thank you and give you praise in the name of Jesus. Amen.
