“As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything” ( Ecclesiastes 11.5 ESV).
One of the worst things a Christian can do is limit God. It is very hard not to perceive the world around us through our own personal perspectives. In fact, God has to monumentally disrupt our lives in order to get us out of our comfort zones, so He can broaden our understanding. But once we experience those moments of glimpsing through God’s perspective, we realize that our viewpoints have been restricted by our experience, background and upbringing. No matter how much wisdom we gain and how much we grow in our relationship with God through Christ, we will never know the fullness of God’s work. We can not trust the circumstances around us because God moves in an atmosphere far above our comprehension. Christians can daily lift their eyes to God and allow His understanding and truth to penetrate the darkness of their assumptions. God is doing so much in our lives and in this world that we can’t see or comprehend, so we need to rely on the soft leading of the Holy Spirit, especially when we don’t understand. When we release our small perspectives to God, we will be freed from the hindrances of our preconceived limitations.
“The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple” (Psalm 119.130 ESV).
