God, too big for us to completely understand but personal enough to have a relationship with. That’s part of the beauty of knowing him.

The nation, the earth, the universe itself. All of these things are just a small facet of God’s divine dominion. And while we spend our lives on this tiny ball of dirt known as Earth, I cannot begin to imagine the galaxies and far away places we have yet to discover, all of which were created by the hands of God—beautiful, magnificent places.

I’ve never met anyone who knew everything there is to know about God. I’ve never met anyone who could fully comprehend the majesty of God’s being. And I’ve never met anyone who could truly wrap their brains around complexity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is too big for us to fully know, and to me that is exhilarating to say the least. How mundane would life be if our faith was put in the hands of someone we could know everything about.

I don’t know why God chooses to heal some, but let the course of life define others. I don’t know why God allows bad things to happen to good people, or why bad people are allowed to thrive amidst their terrible deeds and actions. I don’t know why God does or doesn’t do a lot of things, but that doesn’t mean I don’t trust him and place my life in his control.

There is an unclear beauty of God’s being that keeps me yearning to know him that much more. A light in the distance that calls upon my soul. And while some people might look at God’s grander as intimidating and too big to know personally, I see it as an adventure that keeps me coming back for more.

“For God is the King over all the earth. Praise him with a psalm.”—Psalm 47:7

God, the creator of you and I is on our side. He loves us fervently, forgives us continuously and created us intentionally. We don’t know everything there is to know about God, but that’s part of the beauty.
