What Can You Know?

One of the things that really excites me about my relationship with God is just how little I really know about Him. I know the basics — He is all powerful, all knowing, is everywhere, but do we really understand or know what that means?

In Job 11:6-9, we learn a little about who God really is. Starting in verse 6, we read, “6 That He would show you the secrets of wisdom! For they would double your prudence.  Know therefore that God exacts from you Less than your iniquity deserves. 7 “Can you search out the deep things of God?  Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?  8 They are higher than heaven— what can you do? Deeper than Sheol— what can you know?  9 Their measure is longer than the earth And broader than the sea.”
My favorite portion of this passage is in verse 8, “what can you know?”  That is true. What can we really know about our God who created the Heavens and the earth, created all of us and everything. With the technology we have today, within seconds on the internet, gain access to information from all over the world.  Yet, even with so much information/power available at our fingertips, it is unable to give us the complete picture about God.
We cannot fully expect to understand who is God. What we as believers must get comfortable with is the fact that we don’t need to know everything. When I fly on an airplane, I have no idea how all of the million parts work together to take us from one point to another point safely — I just know that it does. That is the same thing with God. We don’t need to understand all of the parts to God to know that He is God — I just know that He is. What we do know about God is only a sample of who He really is and what He can do for us if we allow Him to be who He wants to be in our lives.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
