Once you know
You never know God,
Then you know
You’ll always know God.

How often do we trivialize the infinite and eternal? How often do we reduce all of creation to a pet system of rules and principles we can grasp? How often do we approach un-awed a vastness without end? For me that would be most everyday.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Isaiah 55:8, NIV, Bible Gateway
The great mystery is that what is totally beyond us in every sense can be totally with us and within us.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Psalm 34:8, NIV, Bible Gateway
And the path through this mystery? Simply Jesus:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
John 10:10, BRG Bible, Bible Gateway
52 . . . all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.” 53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. (Luke 8: 53-55)
Lord, fill me more and more with your spirit. I want more and more life.
