God is big! The Bible says that 'His ways are not our ways' and gives us glimpses of His majesty and power that are truly incomprehensible. We see how at the same time He is able to strategise for a whole universe and know the number of hairs on an individuals head, such knowledge is truly 'beyond us'.

Yet we have been created for relationship with this transcedent God; and not the master slave relationship where the servant has no need to know his master's thoughts or plans, but as friends and more so, collectively, as His bride.

And when we look at scriptural references to 'mystery' it is almost always in the context of a mystery now revealed. So, what are wew supposed to know, how much can wew understand, what are we called to grapple with and work through? Have we been deceived by the enemy into using 'mystery' as an excuse not to challenge some of our preconceptions about God?
