Daily Bible Reading: Ecclesiastes 7 – 9
Verse of the Day: Ecclesiastes 8:17 – “then I beheld all the work of God, that man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because however much a man labor to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea moreover, though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.”
No matter how hard we try, we cannot truly comprehend the vast work of God while we are “under the sun.” As our writer tells us, we can work and work, think we have it all figured out, and then something becomes apparent and it all changes. Consider the study of science over time – how often have they said that this is the facts, only to change them as something new becomes apparent.
In the eternal (“under the Son”) we will one day know and understand it all (1 Corinthians 13:12).
Prayer: One day I will know as I am known, O Majestic God of the Universe. Grant me the wisdom and patience to see You. Amen.
