Have you ever wondered why the sky is blue? Why the colors of the leaves change every season? What the purpose of a mosquito is? Why the Earth rotates the direction that it does? What is the real purpose of hiccups and why do they linger when you want them to go away? Or even why you can’t just seem to find the keys to your car when you absolutely need to find them? These questions all may seem unimportant or ridiculous but there is a reason for them. Questions like these are ones that we may never have the answers to and yet we still wonder why. Why do you think that is? There is yet another question. The answer to that question is…we are made to wonder. A wonderful God, created us to ask questions. Imagine that. A God, who already knows the answers to everything we could possibly want to know, created us to wonder.
“Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.” Revelation 4:11
To wonder means to think or speculate curiously, to be amazed and marvel at the things we discover. Our very core is based upon this idea that we need to learn and discover, everything. This explains things when think about so many new inventions and ideas that are constantly being revealed. All of our curiosity and desire to know the answers to our questions, all came from a wondrous God. He is a God who reveals Himself not only in marvelous ways in creation, but also within our hearts. He continues to show us how wonderful He is but loving us.
“Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, And Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of them, They would be too numerous to count.” Psalm 40:5
“Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who alone works wonders.” Psalm 72:18
God loves our questions because He is the one who can provide all the answers. He wants us to have answers to those ridiculous questions but also to deeper ones, the matters of the heart. He is a wondrous God that wants us to wonder about Him. He wants us to continue to seek after Him, to wonder who He is and why He made us the way that He did. He loves each and every one of us, just the way we are, curious and all.
