“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God; but the things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29
Too many folks worry too much about the unknown. They are miserable because they’re always trying to unravel the mysteries of life. My advice is drop it, let it go, get on with your life, focus on what you know rather than what you don’t. Job learned the hard way that to trust God is better than to try to understand Him. Faith demands that we not know everything, and without faith it is impossible to please God. Thomas Sherman said it well when he wrote these words:
“Do not be anxious to understand the secrets of God. Do not pick the lock to which He has allowed no key. He who will be scanning every cloud—may be smitten with a thunderbolt; and he who will labor to pry into God’s secrets—may be overwhelmed with his judgments!
Adam would presumptuously increase his knowledge; therefore Adam dreadfully lost his goodness! The Bethshemites would pry into the ark of God; therefore the hand of God slew more than fifty thousand of them!
For my part, I will carefully improve myself by things revealed, and not presumptuously inquire into, or after, what he has concealed.”
