Beyond Our Understanding

How great is God—beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out.—Job 36:26 (NIV)

Job tried desperately to understand God’s actions. And although God responded to Job with a flurry of questions, He never directly answered him. God’s response shows that His actions, His reasons cannot be reduced to human understanding.

Heavenly Father, when I get frustrated and try to understand Your plan, lead me back to accepting that it is not for me to know all the answers right now.
