Unsearchable Things

"It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter." (Proverbs 25:2)

Education is sometimes claimed to be a "search for truth," and scientists in particular take pride in their "research." No doubt the scientific method has led to many useful discoveries and inventions, and rulers often have sponsored "government research" for their own ends. Furthermore, God’s primeval "dominion mandate" (Genesis 1:26-28) in effect ordains the conduct of beneficial research.

At the same time, there are some things that are far beyond the research capabilities of human investigations. Yet they are understandable to the believing heart, because these unsearchable things are near to the heart of God, who made us in His image. "I would seek unto God," Job said, "and unto God would I commit my cause: Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number" (Job 5:8-9).

"Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable" (Psalm 145:3). "There is no searching of his understanding" (Isaiah 40:28). "Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite" (Psalm 147:5). There is far more to be discovered concerning God and His great creation than all the scientists can ever hope to discover in this life. But those who love Him will have an eternity of time to search out the majestic complexities of His infinite universe, for "eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).

What a marvelous paradox! "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!" (Romans 11:33). Yet unsearchable though they be, Paul, "less than the least of all saints," was able to "preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ" (Ephesians 3:8). HMM
