Praise the Lord!

(Romans 11:33) “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!”

In this verse, the Apostle Paul bursts forth in praise to the plan of God and to His majesty, grandeur and wisdom. We see that God has a beautiful plan of redemption for all mankind and it shows His wisdom and knowledge.

If you have experienced this redemption you can fully appreciate “the depth of the riches”.

Let’s read together some verses that tell us more about the Lord’s wisdom and knowledge. For the Bible tells us that He has all the wisdom and knows everything infinitely:

“How manifold are thy works, O Jehovah! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.” (Psalm 104:24)

“in order that now to the principalities and authorities in the heavenlies might be made known through the assembly the all-various wisdom of God,” (Ephesians 3:10)

“then hear thou in the heavens, the settled place of thy dwelling, and forgive, and do, and render unto every man according to all his ways, whose heart thou knowest (for thou, thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men),” (1 King 8:39)

“Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.” (Psalm 147:5)

God is also absolutely fair and just, and most of us don’t see this at all times, mostly when a tragedy has come into our lives…

As Christians, we often try to understand or figure out God, His judgments and His ways, and this only causes us much frustration…

For to the prophet Isaiah God said: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith Jehovah. For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Dear friend, let’s pray that He strengthens our faith. No matter what we know, see or don’t, let us believe and keep our full trust in the Lord, for He Himself told us:

“blessed they who have not seen and have believed.” (John 20:29b)

May His blessings be upon you all!
