His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity] Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6 Amplified).
Many things are merely ‘too wonderful’ for explanation—such as, how does a Ruby Throated Hummingbird travel hundreds of miles to a certain destination? It’s so tiny! A Laysan albatross was once released 3,200 miles from its nest in the Midway Atoll. It flew back in ten days (Biogeographic Archives).
The truth about Christ’s birth, death and resurrection is too wonderful for us. How can a baby be born from a virgin womb? Mary surrendered herself utterly in trust and obedience, even though it was an impossible feat.
Job considered himself a righteous man, and the first chapter tells us just that. But after God demonstrated Himself, Job repented in dust and ashes crying, “ I know You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours is thwarted… I have [rashly] uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know” (Job 42:1-2 Amplified).
King David was so zealously in love with God that he wanted to build Him a house. Instead, God sent word by Nathan [and I paraphrase], "No, but I am making you a home through your lineage [Seed] and that Kingdom shall be established forever." Thus, the shepherd knew a Promised One would appear, “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it… neither do I concern myself with great matters” (Psalm 139:6, 131:1 NKJV).
God asked Job if he understood natural habitats of the ostrich, eagle, locusts, wild goats or leviathans—if not, how could he possibly comprehend the supernatural (Job 39-41)? Job contented himself in knowing God’s supremacy.
May we follow the example of our forefathers and believe Jesus the Christ is Lord.
