Hi this is Bill Vanderbush from GOD TV and welcome to God Today. One of the oddest scriptures in the Bible is in Ephesians Chapter 3, “That you may know the love of Christ” the apostle Paul said “that surpasses knowledge.” Now think about that; how can you know what you can’t know?
Well, I think about my daughter. She’s 20 now, but when she was a toddler, like when she was 3 or 4 years old, she comes running up to me. Now what if as a father I had said, “You know, I’d love to love you as a good father, but you don’t understand love. Until you learn to understand and can explain what love is, then I have to withhold my love from you.” Well, what kind of a father would I be if I did that?
A lot of times, as His children, we approach Father God like that; that we can’t experience what we don’t understand. And so we withhold our ability to step into experiences based on the fact that we don’t think we can understand them.
You know my little daughter Sarah was just 2 or 3 years old and I would just pick her up and I would dance around the room with her, I’d swing her around, so she could fully experience the love of her father before she could say the word right or even spell it, or could explain it at all. Her inability to understand something did not take away from her ability to fully experience it.
And that would be my declaration over you today, is that God wants to draw you into experiences that go beyond your understanding, so that you recognize that He is a good Father. And He is not limiting His love and His expression of love towards you purely to what you can understand. So may God just surprise you today with amazing moments. I just pray that for you today. Lord, that you may surprise every watcher and listener with amazing moments of your love that go beyond our understanding so that we can know that the love of Christ surpasses knowledge. God Bless you today.
