Knowing God is quite an experience, let me tell you. It's not your typical relationship. In fact, sometimes it feels like less of a relationship and more like a journey. Maybe that's because the word "relationship" seems too narrow to describe what it's like to know God. It feels like I'm stuffing a month's worth of clothes into a small duffel bag.
It's a good thing, though - knowing God. I love the mystery and surprises that come with discovering God. I'm a counselor by profession and by nature, which means I think very analytically and am always trying to understand. This works great in my job, but can become quite frustrating when applying this to God. Like I said, though, knowing God is a good thing.
How boring would it be if people could "figure out" God? We probably would've done that a long time ago and moved on. Some people would've written about it and maybe today we'd enjoy a good book on the subject. But it certainly wouldn't truly mean anything to us.
May it never be so with God! One thing I find most exciting - and often times comforting - is that no matter how hard I try, I never run out of things to know about God. I'm so grateful that His ways are higher than my ways (Isaiah 55:8-9), because I would have such little faith. My life would be so meaningless. The richness of living is so utterly dependent upon and founded in the everlasting love and knowledge of God. Anything less... would simply be human!
