On What Do I Lean?

There are plenty of things about God and life and eternity that I cannot begin to understand. Things that my mind cannot make sense of and my eyes cannot see.

When I look at a situation and can't answer "why?", I have two choices.

I can decide that everything I can't comprehend calls for putting my faith on pause until I figure out this problem. If something doesn't make sense to me then it must be wrong. I will need to address the issue with God and will continue following Him once He has defended Himself sufficiently and proved Himself to me (again).

The other option is turn to God during these times and not question Him, but seek Him. I can admit that I don't understand and that I struggle with "why". I can sit at his feet as a student instead of calling Him to the stand in my courtroom.

There are mysteries that He will reveal and there are mysteries that will remain. He knows them all. He is trustworthy.

Proverbs 3:5
"Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding."
