6 122

Lord, you are beyond me!

Devotional 6 122

Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; they will see the land that is very far off. (Isaiah 33:17 NKJV)

There is a phrase in the Word: “Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty; they shall behold the land of far distances,” and that two-fold statement can quite truly, and rightly, be applied to Him. He is the King in His beauty; and He is also the Land of Far Distances. Now, to come into a living relationship with the Lord Jesus is to come, sooner or later, to the impasse of the incomprehensible, and we just have to say: “Lord, You are beyond me! Lord, I cannot comprehend; You are too much for me!”

That, of course, on the one side, means difficulties, for it puts us into a  difficult  position  in  that  we  cannot  trace  Him,  follow  Him,  and understand Him. But, on the other side, we would not have it otherwise; we would  not  have  a  “little”  Christ  whom  we  could  comprehend  and altogether understand with our little minds. No, He is beyond us altogether, and what you and I, as His people, are destined to come to if we go on with Him, is just this: that He is ever reaching farther and farther beyond us, and drawing us out beyond ourselves, beyond our resources of mind and will, yet drawing us on, and making us know that we have got to go on. We just cannot stand still; we have to go on. Yes until we also apprehend that for which we have been apprehended, to know him even as we are know, to see him as he is. Alleluia!
