Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out! “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has first given to him, and it will be repaid to him again?” For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things. To him be the glory for ever! Amen.
Perhaps you recall the history of exploration. Marco Polo, who bridged the road between Europe and Asia. Neil Armstrong, who walked on the moon. Newton and Einstein, who broke new ground in science. The world has moved forward by the narrative that so much that is unknown has yet to be discovered.
But today, we’ve stopped exploring. We have new technologies, new gadgets that promise to make life easier or more exciting. But, most of our focus has turned inward. We’re under the spell of electronic enchantments, assuming that all we see is all there is.
It’s so easy, even in your spiritual life, to assume that you know all there is to know. But, God invites you to set out and explore a world beyond your limited imaginations, beyond your human frailties, to the uncharted territory of the divine.
What do you still have to discover about what you can accomplish? About areas of your character that have yet to be conquered? About the people in need you have yet to reach out and touch?
What, in the deep things of God, do you still have to discover and see?
