“If you can explain what’s going on, God didn’t do it.”—Warren Wiersbe, quoting Bob Cook.
No, I don’t know who Bob Cook is, but the quotation is worth meditating on. I think there’s a bit of hyperbole here. I think God fully intends for us to know a lot of what He’s doing. He gives us plenty of instructions that are meant to be carried out. However I rarely have a day go by that I’m not puzzled as to what God has in mind. Despite that, I keep on trying to figure things out. Occasionally, I’m successful, which eggs me on. There are five things I always keep in mind, though. 1. God doesn’t make mistakes. 2. I’m not supposed to know everything God’s doing. 3. He gives me all I need to know. 4. It is always profitable to try to figures things out. 5. It will always make sense some day—in heaven, when it will probably be irrelevant.
