The Bible says faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of realities not seen. Does “seen” also mean “understood”? If so, then maybe faith includes trusting that God understands the things that still baffle us. That may be the supreme act of faith, because it means humbly conceding that we don’t have all the right answers, yet trusting that He does – especially when His answers are different from ours.
