Baxter: the incomprehensible God

Thursday, June 14, 2018
    Commemoration of Richard Baxter, Priest, Hymnographer, Teacher, 1691
    Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding?
    —Isaiah 40:14 (NIV)
    You may know God, but not comprehend him.
    ... Richard Baxter (1615-1691), Of the Knowledge of God, the first treatise of The Divine Life: in three treatises [1664], in The Practical Works of Richard Baxter, v. III, G. Virtue, 1838, ch. 4, p. 770 (see the book)
    See also Job 37:5; Isa. 40:14-15,17; Jer. 31:33-34; Hos. 6:3; John 8:19; 17:3; 2 Cor. 4:6; 1 John 4:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are beyond all understanding.
