Our lack of understanding

Romans 11:33
Acts 1:6-9
Why did Jesus have to die on the cross?
Why did He have to leave us before the Holy Spirit could come?
Why do we have to experience death before we can rejoin Him?
Why does God allow so many natural disasters plague us in this life?
As much as there is a theological answer to each of these questions, they still trouble us in our lack of understanding God. His wisdom and knowledge, His judgments and paths, exceed our own to such a great degree that we still struggle after receiving the simplified response. We cannot hope to fully understand God, nor should we try (to fully understand Him, that is), but rather we should strive to trust Him. Since He sees and understands the reality of our lives so much more clearly than we do, we can follow His lead even though we don't see the path were He is guiding us.
