New discoveries are exciting. Nonetheless, there are things no scientific effort will be able to reveal. God, who by the way invented science, has no intentions to take His mystery out of the equation. I think that’s beautiful. While the universe runs like well-crafted machinery, life is no machinery. Life is a mystery. So is love. It behooves us to stay curious!
All life comes from God. The closer we get to God, the more alive we become. Approaching Him is life. Separating from Him means death. Death is no mystery. There is nothing to explore in death. Death is absolute nothingness while life is absolute everythingness. And God is in everything, which is why He relates to everything and can reveal in depth and at a capacity foreign to us.
God can relate to you and me like no other. Our minds and hearts are like fingerprints – unique. We all think differently simply because we sense the world around us with our very own five senses. God chimes in from the inside. No one else can get into our head and see what moves us openly displayed. Similar to us watching a drama unfold on a big screen of a movie theater, our thoughts and feelings are openly accessible to Him. This just comes with the territory of being the Creator of the universe.
While this may be frightening to realize the potency of such proximity, we do not need to be afraid of God. God has no bad intentions. He has the potential to manipulate us, however, mind control is so very much opposed to what He stands for. What He loves to do though is using His connectivity to our benefit. Knowing what excites us, He’ll keep revealing things we are curious about. Personally, I think that a good portion of our discoveries actually stem from this innate relationship God has with each of His creatures. The driving force of our curiosity is like a river God leads into areas where we’ve never been.
Seeking God has many layers to it. The primal quest is reaching out for Love with a capital “L”, Love that embraces us completely as a person. Yet another layer of seeking God is exploring our fields of interest with Him. If you are a gifted scientist you’ll discover things you have never dreamed of. If you are a gifted musician you’ll bring a fresh new musical wind into the arena. Whatever talent God has put in you, He is excited to develop you further.
God is excited about life, and He is excited about you. Discovering God is the mother of all discoveries!
