When it comes to the things of God, our thoughts and our human understanding are limited, yet we have the tendency to try and rationalize everything.
So, although useful in many situations, our excellent reasoning skills can be a hinderance to our belief. However, I will suggest something that might help you. It might help if you go ahead and accept the fact that there are some things that you and I just aren’t going to understand.
That’s because no one understands them. There are questions that we just do not and will not have the answers to on this side of Heaven.
Not having all the answers is no reason for us to not believe. Instead, it’s an opportunity to trust God and to believe that He has provided us with everything we need to know for our salvation.
Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t question things. No, certainly not. Knowledge is essential for growth and questions force us to dig deeper and learn more.
I’m also not asking you to blindly follow a religion just because you’re told to do so. No, not at all. But what I’m asking you to do is to simply give God a chance. Even the smallest morsel of belief opens the door for God to step in and show Himself real to you.
He will place undeniable evidence in your heart that will prove to you who He is and what He can do in your life. You may not know how you know, but trust me, you will know. You will have no doubt that it’s God.
So, all I’m asking you to do here is one simple thing. Well, maybe three things depending on how you look at it, but you get the point. Okay, here it is: Do not close your heart. Leave it cracked just a little and be open to receive the truth of God, even if you have doubts.
Also, be careful to not fall into the crowd of skeptics who are quick to raise a brow and diminish the word of God, simply because they don’t understand or have all the answers.
And then finally, think about this: when you were a child growing up, did you know everything there was to know about your parents or your guardian? No, because they didn’t share every little thing with you. That’s because some things weren’t any of your business and you understood that, but your life still went on.
You knew everything you needed to know to learn and grow. You didn’t receive an explanation for everything, nor did you ask for every little detail, yet you still trusted your parents and obeyed them.
And you turned out okay, right? Right? So, how much more should we trust a loving Father in Heaven who only wants what is good for us? I pray that God will give you spiritual eyes to see, spiritual ears to hear, and a heart to understand the truth.
God bless you.
