Entering the cave of wonders

I don’t concern myself with matters too great or too awesome for me to grasp. Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself… Ps. 131:1b-2a

It’s more likely that we are too bogged down in the mundane to enter God’s great and awesome cave of wonders. It’s actually good to be curious, to ask questions, and to have a healthy sense of wonder. God invites us into matters greater and more awesome than we’ve ever thought to explore. We can, however, make our desire to understand, to explain, or to control completely distract and disturb us to the point of obsession. It’s not that pursuing great and awesome ideas is going to automatically create turmoil, it’s that the vast height, width, length, and depth of God’s love is the wonder that informs how we process all the other wonders.

Lord, help me to process all wonders in the joyful context of Your calming love.
