Knowing stuff

WE LIKE TO KNOW STUFF. We obsess about KNOWLEDGE and we desperately want to UNDERSTAND everything that goes on around us. Even in matters of faith, we crave nailing down correct doctrine, leaving our ‘faith’ ironically dependent on certainty.
Yes, understanding has its place…but we are told that there is a ‘peace WHICH SURPASSES all understanding’ (Philippians 4:7). The Spirit invites us to go beyond knowing so that we can FEEL something far more important. Sometimes we need to simply allow mystery to fill us…and lead us to rest.
