How much time do you waste trying to figure God out? Don’t’ worry. You’re not the first. In Job 11: 7-9, 11 (MSG), Zophar questions Job: “Do you think you can explain the mystery of God? Do you think you can diagram God Almighty? God is far higher than you can imagine, far deeper than you can comprehend, stretching farther than earth’s horizons, far wider than the endless ocean… He sees through vain pretensions, spots evil a long way off—no one pulls the wool over his eyes!”
Man is still trying to figure out what life lurks in the depths of the ocean and what lies in the vast vacuums of space. These have been since He created all in the beginning. There is too much to God for us to wrap our minds around. Instead of looking at the small picture, the here-and-now, the “how is God going to work this out”, we need to trust that everything we do and go through are part of His plan.
Proverbs 3: 5 tell us to simply “trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own”. Trust in how How works.

Ecclesiastes 11:5 (AMP) Just as you do not know the way and path of the wind or how the bones are formed in the womb of a pregnant woman, even so you do not know the activity of God who makes all things.
Ecclesiastes 11:5 (MSG) Just as you’ll never understand the mystery of life forming in a pregnant woman, so you’ll never understand the mystery at work in all that God does.
