Romans 11: 33 - 36 (NIV): 33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! 34"Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?"35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?" 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
Our God is not some local deity. Paul is assuring us in this passage that God is the god. He knows everything. There is nothing that has ever happened or ever will happen that he doesn't know about. Jesus said God knows each time a sparrow dies, and he knows how many hairs are on our heads. In other words, he knows everything about us. He knows what we are going to do and why we are going to do it.But more than that, he never makes a mistake. Nothing happens without his approval and he is never wrong. And he never makes junk. He created each of us just as we are. He has a reason for everything. Some things are painful to us at the time, but we must trust that God knows what he's doing. We could never assume to understand his thoughts.
No one is equal to God. We don’t pray to advise him. We ask believing – and leave the results to him. God also owns everything. Everything in the universe is already his. He lets us be stewards of what we have, but we must know it actually belongs to God. He is lacking in nothing and has no need for anything.
What’s astonishing is that he is this powerful and yet he loves us so much. That is unfathomable! And He desires the very best for us. Who can understand this? All we can do is fall at his feet and trust him.
