Tozer: the mysteries

Tuesday, July 3, 2018
    Feast of Thomas the Apostle
    Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.
    —Isaiah 64:4 (NIV)
    God will not hold us responsible to understand the mysteries of election, predestination, and the divine sovereignty. The best and safest way to deal with these truths is to raise our eyes to God and in deepest reverence say, “O Lord, Thou knowest.” Those things belong to the deep and mysterious Profound of God’s omniscience. Prying into them may make theologians, but it will never make saints.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 64 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 64:4; 1 Cor. 2:9-11; Col. 1:25-26; Heb. 5:11-14; 2 Pet. 3:16-17
Quiet time reflection:
    I bow before Your mysteries, Lord.
