God has filled life full of puzzles and problems and mysteries and suspense to challenge our intellect, our faith, our trust in Him, and to get us to want to find out the answers!
In trying to show us His Will, it's almost like He sometimes lays down a mystifying puzzle before us. He likes to almost tease us with these mysteries, because it really makes us pray! He speaks in riddles and mysteries, but He almost always gives us the starting clue. Then He keeps giving us clues to what the solution is. He leads us on step by step but we don't know what is going to happen until we land on the next step. (Psa.37:23)
He likes for us to have to seek it. Because this is exercising our faith in Him and His Word and His divine guidance and magnanimity, His parental Love. It shows we trust in Him when we obey Him, even if we don't know what's at the end of the road. We may not see the answer, we may not know the solution or the place He's leading to or what we're going to find, but we're trusting God to fulfil His promises.--Like Abraham did when he obeyed God and went out, not even knowing where he was going. (Heb.11:8) Don't you love a mystery?--God does!
