“深哉，神丰富的智慧和知识！ 他的判断何其难测！ 他的踪迹何其难寻！”罗马书 11:33
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! Romans 11:33
As we look at the world in which we live, there are many confusions, bewilderments, and mysteries that seemingly have no solution. Man, however, has always been bewildered and confused by things which are beyond his understanding.Primitive man, like modern man, probed the universe for its secrets and looked up at the night sky in awe and wonder at the mystery of the black space with its myriads of inexplicable lights.It was the mystery of gravitation which challenged Sir Isaac Newton in 1985 to explore the reasons why objects heavier than air were attracted to the center of the earth.It was the mystery of lightning that prompted Benjamin Franklin to attach a key to the tail of a kite during a thunderstorm, to prove the identity of lightning and electricity. It was the mystery of the latent power of the atom which challenged Einstein, Fermi, and others to probe into the dormant energy in matter. Atomic energy is now a household world.Some of the mysteries of the past have been fathomed by science. Others still puzzle mankind. This fact remains: All of the garnered wisdom of the ages is only a scratch on the surface of man’s search for the knowledge of the universe.
For the most part, God retains His secrets, and man, standing on his intellectual tiptoes, can comprehend only a small fraction of the Lord’s doings.This inability fully to comprehend the mysteries of God does not in any way curtail the Christian faith. On the contrary, it enhances our belief. We do not understand the intricate pattern of the stars in their courses, but we know that He who created them does, and that just as surely as He guides them, He is charting a safe course for us.
