I know we are all very capable people. Capable of what, is still being clarified day to day. I am no different than anyone else and hope we are all equally grateful for growth in comprehension of truth. If people did not share their thoughts, we would not develop as quickly. However, endless discussion can bury important details pertaining to things of importance.
Just like gathering information to write about a topic; at some point the randomness must end and all things must come together in a cohesive manner. But who determines the direction, validity and end of a thing? It all starts with a question and ends with a satisfying answer. Some of us become satisfied before others. Others are wired with a deeper curiosity, heavens know I even ask questions about why that is. These thoughts have a reason, a motion, a force and keep excited to go farther down the line.
For instance, someone thousands of years ago wondered, "what came first the chicken or the egg?" (And yes, we too have discussed this before) In my opinion, on some level, God must scratch His head when listening to us. If you believe in God, then you believe He created all the chickens and all the eggs, if not I am not really sure how their belief systems get around to chickens and eggs, but neither is that my point:
Knowing how God places all things on a stage to spotlight what brings Him sheer delight and share it with everyone else. I think He might say we are missing the point if our question is which came first: chicken or egg. I think He would say, I really can't remember now because I am watching this precious little chick break through this shell so it can discover a whole new way of life. If you don't mind, not that I won't answer it, but I sure don't want to miss one second of this little darlings journey; would you like to stay and help me?
I also know whoever stays they get their answers. But I hope not all of them, I cannot imagine how discouraging a life would be if there was nothing left to learn. Think about the writer of Ecclesiastes, after knowing and experiencing everything, he learned he had not been satisfied with what was best and enjoying the very life which he was created to travel. I wonder at times if this was where he truly began to learn some good stuff.
Are you still thinking about light and dark?
If you do not know already:
In light there can be shadows but not total darkness.
Darkness is the absence of light.
Meditate on this scripture and see what you see:
In closing, God will allow us to ask any question. He loves us! He also loves us enough to say "Stop It". Just as He did with Job, whom He himself said there was none more righteous during his time.
Job 38: 1-3 Who is this that darkens counsel, who covers over sound instruction with empty words void of knowledge? Now prepare yourself and gather your courage like a warrior; Prepare yourself for the task at hand. I'll be asking the questions now - you will supply the answer.
Job 38: 19-21 Tell me which way is it to where light resides? And darkness? Where does the darkness live/ When you escort it through its regions every day will you know the way to its home? Ah, but of course you know! After all, you were born way back then when all this was created and your days have been many indeed!!
We know it is Satan who darkens counsel, who covers over sound instruction with empty words void of knowledge. Maybe the shadows were too large around Job and maybe what God was saying was "Enough Satan", I am now going to shed some light and disperse you. Think about it........
May Grace and Peace Be Yours in Christ,
