If you are like me, sometimes you stop and think about the wonder of God’s design. It is good to take time to be in awe of our amazing God. There are many things we do not understand, and we search for answers to things that we may never know on this side of heaven. But let us take time to lean into the mystery of how God, who created the universe, dwells inside the hearts of all believers. Sometimes we try to understand when we should open a window to our mind and accept the mystery. God is so patient with us, yet we continually repeat the same mistakes and ask the same old questions for clarity, when He has already told us, or He chooses not to tell us; either way, we can be okay with the information He has provided. I have caught myself in one breath, saying ‘it is in your hands, Lord’ and then still try to control and understand things I am not meant to know yet.
I do know that the best question I ever asked in my life was ‘God, what do you want?’ It was like a great weight lifted from my shoulders and I experienced a freedom like no other. Lately, I have been asking it again. I want to continue to ask and live a life of freedom, which allows God to lead me one step at a time. I am not asking to try to figure out my future, but to release it into God’s hands. This helps me stay in step with the Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:25, ESV).
The mysteries of God lie with Christ. In Him are the hidden treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col. 2:2-3, ESV). I know when I get tired, I am more likely to have doubts about my path. But I ask God to help me fight through them and be excited about the mystery of the journey, and the adventure that lies ahead. I also know with each sunrise comes the mercy and childlike wonder of a new day. Christ is God’s mystery, all understanding is found in Him, and He is enough.
