Do You Believe What You Can’t Understand?

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another:
just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
 
By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.
John 13:34-35

PRAY OVER THIS

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up in glory.”

PONDER THIS

Don’t ever cast out matters of faith because you can’t understand them. How are you going to understand Almighty God, with you being finite and He being infinite? It may sound contradictory to you and outside the realm of logic, but I want to remind you that there are many things you must believe that are contradictory and outside the realm of logic. Here are a couple of examples.

Infinity. Which of you understands infinity—that things go on and on and on? Have you ever thought about that? Even though your mind cannot begin to conceive of infinity; you believe it.

Eternity. Everything we know has a beginning and an end. But we know that time cannot cease to exist. You can’t totally grasp that eternity never had a beginning and never has an ending, yet you believe it.

You also don’t understand that God is everywhere at the same time. It is contrary to human logic. But God is a presence whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. We don’t have to understand it. Likewise, the idea of the Trinity does not rise or fall on logic, but by divine revelation. It is a sacred mystery.

  • How do you react when it comes to matters of faith you don’t fully understand?
  • How do God’s vastness and mysteries grow your awe of Him?

PRACTICE THIS

Write out some of the questions of faith you wrestle with. Ask God to help you trust Him even in the things you won’t ever fully understand in this life.

There are times when we are to be on our face or on our knees with the Lord, but the point is—we are to be natural.

Do you feel like your faith is a thing of the past? Do you feel like you’ve wandered too far from God?
You don’t have to. 
God wants to meet you where you are, and bring you back to Him.
