Yes I Ken (All Around the Word part 4)

"That ye may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." (Ephesians 3:17-19)

I have not wrapped my mind around God

My mind isn't broad enough. Einstein said "I want to know His thoughts". Well, so do I, I must admit. But I'd rather know His heart. Him. And my mind? It's more like a color, say yellow. And that has been infused with red—bled in, as it were. To where it's now orange. No, one doesn't wrap their mind around God. He wraps you in His heart.

As you may know and realize, the word ken means "your understanding", your "ken". While the name Ken (Kenneth) means "handsome"—and that really doesn't mean anything (not without something to compare it to)—your inner ken, is where it's at. Scripturally speaking, it's along the lines of when Jesus says "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." (Matthew 11:15) He's broadcasting a deep line of understanding and wisdom leading to Himself that, if you got the guts, you can take hold of back to Him. It's not beyond your ken, you just may not know that yet.

"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." (Revelation 2:29)

The thing (one of them, anyway) about Revelation is that it's broadcasted and advertised as this impossible-without-a-PhD-to-understand book of high symbolism and abstruse, if arcane, meaning. And this is true. But why would Jesus take hold of John and then speak these things in his presence—telling him to write them down no less. Loose the book on the world and then discourage and demur one from diving into it for understanding? And just like I don't have concrete, black-and-white answers for each and every one of my questions, I am confident that the Lord will broaden my understanding as my life progresses. One day, one thought at a time.

"I will run the way of Thy commandments, when Thou shalt enlarge my heart." (Psalm 119:32)

Ooh! One quick thing. The more questions you get answered, the more your mind fills with whatever color with which God reveals Himself, the more you'll be expected to walk in that truth. Don't worry. As a child of God, He takes great pains to ensure you're strong enough to bear the added responsibility befitting the crown with which you've been fitted, if that makes sense. And this is why we will cast whatever crowns we've accrued at the throne of the King. I think it says that somewhere in Revelation.
