Why do we imagine we can know what God wants or what he is like? Is it not vanity? We cannot understand God! We can only understand what he chooses to reveal to us.
We don’t even know the thoughts of another human being. And God is way above us:
Isaiah 55:8-9 King James Version (KJV)
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
I realised this: we don’t have the capacity to love such a being, as God. We cannot love someone we can’t see with our eyes and hear with our ears. This is why we must ask God to show us how to love him.
This is why it is written:
1 Corinthians 3:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
1 Corinthians 1:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
