Unfathomable

Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. (Psalm 145:3, NIV 1984).

My Musings – We live in an age of science and reason. At least we like to think so, when we really have so much to learn. But we think that if we cannot fathom it, then it must be foolishness. But what is foolishness really?

“Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a ‘fool’ so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: ‘He catches the wise in their craftiness;’ and again, ‘The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.’ So then, no more boasting about men!” (1 Corinthians 3:18–21, NIV 1984).

No more boasting about our advanced reasoning or so-called scientific “knowledge.” Why should we expect to fully fathom the wonders of creation, the awesome power of a worldwide flood, God taking on human flesh so He could die for our sins, the resurrection of the dead, or life everlasting — to name just a few. “And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand [fathom] the thunder [greatness] of his power?” (Job 26:14, NIV 1984). If we could, would He be God? I for one would not want a God who was fathomable.

My Advice -Why do we find it so incredible that an all-powerful God can do things that we cannot understand or explain? Why is it easier to believe the incredible happens by mere chance or accident? Either one believes in this God that no one can fathom, or in no god at all. There really is no other choice. But it is our choice. Choose faith in this God and His Son.
