Perplexed: Word Ambassadors: Prayers and Poetry


Reading: Acts 2:12

“All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?’”

A recent article on FB noted that young children ask an average of close to three hundred questions per day, and other research says four year olds often ask over 400.

Curiosity is hardwired into us—especially if we have a desire to learn and connect.

My two year old grandson repeatedly asks, “what is it”, these days as he adds to his vocabulary. He often repeats his new word a few times and nods happily. But not so much to his sometimes follow up questions of “why”, when either I don’t know the answer, or don’t have a vocabulary that he can reason through. His frown and disappointment in me is tangible.

“A mystery, in the biblical sense, is simply a truth that has not yet been revealed. The only way to understand it rightly is through the interpretation of the Spirit of God.” Oswald Chambers

How often do we bring our spiritual questions to each other, or try to figure them out ourselves, and forget that our human replies are limited. Too often we settle for surface explanations, correct or not, and miss a depth invitation waiting to grow closer to the Lord.

“‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Neither are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord.” Isaiah 55:8 NAS

Lord, thank you for Your open invitation to come and ask and seek and listen. Help us to remember to look past the surface and search for Your light in our lives and Your path through our confusion.


Psalm of Worship: Genesis 1:12

“The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good.”
