Jeremiah 33:2-3: “This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it—the Lord is his name: ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’”

New discoveries are exciting. Nonetheless, there are things no scientific effort will be able to reveal. God remains a mystery, and I think that’s beautiful. While the universe runs like well-crafted machinery, life is no machinery. Life is mysterious. So is love.

Personally, I think that a good portion of our discoveries actually stem from the 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. 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 musical breeze into the arena.

Our hearts and minds are like our fingerprints – unique. And God who made us understands us like no other. He chimes in from the inside. He can see what moves us – similar to watching a drama on a big movie screen He can read our thoughts and feelings. While it may come to us as a shock to realize that God knows absolutely everything about us, we do not need to be afraid of Him. He has no bad intentions. Mind control is so very much opposed to what He stands for.

All life comes from God. 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.

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. God is excited about life, and He is excited about you. Discovering God is the mother of all discoveries.
