Job 11:7 - "Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
Doubt! A word that we all would have come across or meet often. Doubt is not the product of unbelief but pride due to the inability to comprehend God. While doubt can lead to spiritual productivity as we can strive to come closer to God, if conceived on a large scale it will give birth to unbelief. Although, it is difficult to accept it, we are beings with finite minds. There are mysteries all around us that we can't even fathom in our entire life time. But the prideful nature of our beings, make us doubt everything that we can't comprehend. We have little answers but various questions, not all our questions are answered. When we 'try' to figure it all out, we end up with more questions! Why?
Ecclesiastes 8:17 “..However much man may toil in seeking, he will not find it out. Even though a wise man claims to know, he cannot find it out.”
We are designed to not know! If we were born with all the answers, what will we learn from life? We'll have no purpose. Our primary purpose is to know God more! If we figure out everything about Him, we lose the wonder. The 'Continual growing in Christ comes from a deepening knowledge of Him'. When we lose the wonder of His word, we stop serving and praising Him with passion. How many times have we read a familiar scripture and still found something new? - Many! We really know nothing, but we like to assume we do. When we can not explain something, we create our own theory that we can explain and that can suit ourselves; many have done that (some without realizing). However, the word of the Lord already mentions that scenario and clearly states that even though they think they have found 'it' out, they really haven't.
What makes us doubt God? His unconditional love and all sufficient grace - because we have never encountered anything like it on earth! His power and magnificence - because we don't understand and can't explain how He could have done a certain thing. God is omnipotent, anything is possible for Him and He has the most perfect character ever! Although we know it, sometimes we move away and are so caught up with the world that we don't feel it and just can't digest His beauty!
Those who believe that they believe in God, but without passion in their hearts, without anguish in mind, without uncertainty, without doubt, without an element of despair even in their consolation, believe in the God idea, not God himself."
