In trust and wonder

Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! I Cor. 13:9

Through scholarship, observation, experimentation, logic, and perception we seek to understand ourselves and the world around us. We proceed based on what we think we know, and the more sure we are, the greater our confidence in our own decisions. The disconnects and contradictions reveal the inadequacies in our systems and the enormity, complexity, and completeness of God’s. It is in what we do not fully grasp and what we cannot fully explain that we experience wonder of Him. It is in what we cannot predict or control that we experience trust in Him.

Lord, increase my trust, my understanding, and my wonder.
