“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3, NIV).
Unsearchable… What a simple concept, yet so difficult to understand. In the world that we live in today, is there much that is unsearchable? Honestly, we live in a time where technology is thriving and a generation of people are all driven by knowledge. You can pretty much Google anything you want today and something is going to come up. But imagine with me a day where you are frantically searching for something and Google has no answer. Wikipedia finally has nothing to say, because it doesn’t have a clue. That seems pretty unsearchable to me.
I have often heard the saying, “Knowledge is power,” and while I agree that knowledge is important, I also believe that there are some things that are only revealed by God himself–all we have to do is ask. I have also heard it said that you shouldn’t ask God, “Why?” as if it’s wrong to do or something. Well, I believe the scripture above completely shatters that statement. Let me explain… According to the Bible, I am a child of God! He is my (Abba) father and I am his son. I’m reminded of the thousands of times when I was a kid and I would ask the question, “Why?” Why this or why that? I’m sure my mom ran out of answers a time or two. Or maybe there were times when she had to make up an answer just so I would shut up. All I know is that I was a crazy kid with a lot of questions, and the truth is, I still am. I also remember the story when the disciples were trying to keep the children from coming to Jesus and Jesus said, “Let them come to me.” He also said that we must become like children to inherit the kingdom. Why children?
Did you know that children operate in more faith than most lifelong Christian adults do? Life has its way of making us believe that reality is based only on what we see and experience. Slowly but surely we become people who adopt a mindset that I like to call “it just is.” I believe that the “it just is” mindset comes from people who were once wondering “why” and because they couldn’t find an answer, they decided it was easier just to believe that they would never find one, thus “it just is.” And to that I give you a quote from the wise King Solomon, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings” (Proverbs 25:2, KJV).
We have a Heavenly Father who says, “Call to me and I will answer you” (Jeremiah 33:3, NIV). Everything you have ever needed or need to know is bound up in our resurrected savior. God is our all-knowing father who desires to reveal himself to his children. So I ask you, “WHY” should we look anywhere else for answers to the unsearchable things? I challenge you to literally do exactly what Jeremiah 33:3 says. You don’t need all of the faith in the world, just a mustard seed worth, and you will see how God will take you to fresh waters that you never knew existed.
