You say you don’t know why
and how He could let it happen
And you try to understand,
to know what He’s thinking
But His thoughts
are so beyond
And His ways
not even in range
So we trust that He Is
and that He took our fallen selves
and loved us still
He took our brokenness
and provided hope
He IS our Hope
and our mercy’s hand
He IS our Lifeline
And though we don’t understand
or comprehend His ways
We can know
He is our Answer
All questions are shrouded
in the glory of who He is

How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!
– Psalm 147:5 (NLT)
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so My ways are higher than your ways
and My thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
– Isaiah 5:8,9 (NLT)
Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of His understanding.
– Isaiah 40:28 (NLT)
God stretches the northern sky over empty space
and hangs the earth on nothing.
He wraps the rain in His thick clouds,
and the clouds don’t burst with the weight.
He covers the face of the moon,
shrouding it with His clouds.
He created the horizon when He separated the waters;
He set the boundary between day and night.
The foundations of heaven tremble;
they shudder at His rebuke.
By His power the sea grew calm.
By His skill He crushed the great sea monster.
His Spirit made the heavens beautiful,
and His power pierced the gliding serpent.
These are just the beginning of all that He does,
merely a whisper of His power.
Who, then, can comprehend the thunder of His power?”
– Job 26:7-14 (NLT)
“Indeed, through His own gracious revelation of Himself, we can understand God in part, but we can never fully comprehend Him, or even a single one of His qualities. There will always be more of His wisdom to understand, more of His power, more of His holiness, more of His love. We will never fathom Him, and we will never tire of Him. Through all eternity, we will look upon Him and marvel at the endlessly creative, wonderfully gracious, uniquely righteous, timelessly beautiful, unsearchably glorious, infinitely loving Maker and Ruler of all.”
– Kevin Hartnett
When I look at the night sky and see the work of Your fingers—
the moon and the stars you set in place—
what are mere mortals that You should think about them,
human beings that You should care for them?
Psalm 8:3,4 (NLT)
