In this episode we talk about both rational and imaginative sides of meditating on God's word. It isn't about emptying our thoughts, but courageously thinking those thoughts, asking the questions, sitting in wonder, and wrestling with theology that we worry may shake us.

God isn't scared.

Like adopted children, we may know the legality of our identity as part of God's family was purchased through his blood on the cross. However, it's normal to wrestle with what that means, and to not understand the full extent of our freedom as a son or daughter.

Asking the honest questions that we don't understand is not shameful. It's wonderful. God uses our wonder, curiosity, logic, and imagination all for his glory as we interact with his Scriptures by the power of the Holy Spirit.
