Unmanageable

27 04 2011

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever…”
(Deuteronomy 29:29)

To admit that there is One who lies beyond us, Who exists outside all our categories, Who will not be dismissed with a name, Who will not appear before the bar of our reason, nor submit to our curious inquiries: this requires a great deal of humility, more than most of us possess, so we save face by thinking God down to our level, or at least down to where we can manage Him.

–A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy
