Knowing the Mind of God
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me"—(Philippians 4:13, kjv).
Stephen Hawking, author of A Brief History of Time, may be the most brilliant man of the 20th century. As a physicist, Hawking has dedicated his life to searching for a single mathematical formula that would explain all the forces of the universe. This formula is referred to as the unified theory because it would unite all we know about the forces that define the universe. Hawking explains his pursuit by saying that discovering this unified theory would be “the ultimate triumph of human reason” because then we would “know the mind of God.”
Yet none of us will ever know the whole mind of God. Expecting a human to come to know the mind of God would be similar to believing a canary could perform brain surgery. The bird has no comprehension of the subject, cannot be shown any procedure, and indeed, isn’t even aware of the existence of the concept of medicine.
The gap between the mind of God and the mind of man is so much greater than between a canary and a brain surgeon. Even if any of us do make a brilliant scientific discovery, we will have only scratched the surface of God’s knowledge.
But can we know the mind of God? Amazingly, we can through reading His Word, where He reveals Himself to us. Through it, we can also come to know Christ, who is the mind of God. Get to know Him and we won’t know everything, but we’ll know enough.
