Understanding God

Romans 1:18-20
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Much learning has the power to make one mad. When this happens, doctrines, teachings and theories, that also cause others to slowly go mad are birthed.

Learning that is geared at challenging the Creator; trying to understand His wisdom by our own might, can lead, and has led a lot of people down the road to madness.

Festus thought the same had happened to Paul, after he narrated his profound testimony (See Acts 26:24). But as Paul exclaimed, he received everything via revelation, not when he was on a quest to understand what had not been revealed to man, by his own power.

Paul stated in Romans 1:18-20 (our memory verse) that, God has made Himself known through creationall that we see. No matter how hard we try to explain who He is and what He has done by our own power, we won\’t be able to; the best way to understand our Creator is to draw near to Him.

Creation can only be understood by humbly asking the One who created it for revelation.
