“There’s no point in thinking through it, because there’s no way to know the answer to that question.”
Or is there a point?
I love to think, even about questions that don’t have answers. Or rather, questions that we won’t know the answer to while we live on this earth.
They don’t frustrate me. Because in asking the unanswerable questions, I’m increasing my wonder and amazement. I’m putting my heart and mind in a position that makes me remember
that I am human and God is not;
that my knowledge is limited and God is all-knowing;
that I have a pea brain and God thought up everything in existence.
Framed the right way, all those topsy turvy thoughts and mind-boggling questions about life can end in wonder, not frustration. What better place to be?
I can think through impossible questions for the sake of thinking about them.
I don’t have to be frustrated because I don’t understand. Instead, I can be amazed that He does.
“Daniel replied, ‘No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries.’”
- Daniel 2:27-28
