Job answered the Lord, “I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me which I did not know.” (Job 42:3).
I recently read that the word kangaroo means, “I don’t know” in the language of the Australian Aborigines. When Captain Cook asked the natives what the name of the strange looking animal was, they answered “kangaroo”.
In the eighth chapter of the book of Acts, there was a man of Ethiopia, reading from the book of Isaiah, who was asked by Philip, “Do you know what you are reading?” And he said, “How can I , except someone guides me.” This very sincere man was searching for answers. “Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.” (Acts 8:35) It was said of the people in Berea that, “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11). It is important that we go to the right source to find the answers.
Paul with confidence said, “I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.” (II Timothy 1:12)
