I think one of the scariest things for believers, when it comes to sharing their faith, is that they might not have an answer for someone’s question.
If that’s you, I have great news for you. You are not meant to know everything. There are things that are only for God to know.
David said that he did not occupy himself – spending time and emotional energy – with things too great and too marvelous for him (v 1). This tells me two things.
- There are, in fact, things that are “too great” for me to understand (v 1).
- When I accept this fact, my soul is calmed and quieted (v 2).
Here is one of my long standing concepts of Bible study.
👉 I want to know all that I can know about God and his Word. But I am also okay not knowing what I wasn’t meant to know.
The exact date of Christ’s return? Not for me to know (Matthew 24:36).
How God’s sovereignty and man’s free will work together? I don’t fully understand.
We put in the work. We seek wisdom and study truth. But, at the end of the day, God is God and there are things that are his to know. And I’m good with that.
