"I do not try, Lord, to attain Your lofty heights because my understanding is in no way equal to it. But I do desire to understand Your truth a little, that truth that my heart believes and loves. I do not seek to understand that I may believe; but I believe so that I may understand. For I believe this also, that unless I believe, I shall not understand." (St. Anselm of Canterbury) There is so much about God and his plan for us that we do not fully understand. To understand fully would make us equal to God. So, there will always be a gap in our understanding of God. But to believe in God before understanding will enable us to better understand the God we believe in. Mystery? Paradox? Reality?
