When Reason Is Lost In Wonder
The great boulders which lie along the valley of Storo in the Tyrol are of a granite unknown in that region; they must have come from a great distance. Now it might be hard to explain the method by which they arrived in the valley, but it would be absurd to deny that they are there. Most unaccountable is the fact, but a very strong and stubborn fact it is, for there they lie, huge as houses and yet perfectly alien to the country.
There are truths in Scripture which puzzle us; we cannot understand their relation to other portions of revelation. They are mysteries, apparently alien to the spirit of other passages. What then? Although we cannot account for them, that does not alter the fact that there they are, and it would be extreme folly to deny their existence because they puzzle us. Rather let us find room for adoring faith where reason is lost in wonder. ~ Charles Spurgeon.
My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. (Psalm 131:1-2)
