Of Him, Through Him, To Him
Today’s Reading: Romans 11
Key Verse: Romans 11:33
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
We might want to meditate on the words, “depth,” “riches,” “wisdom,” “knowledge,” “unsearchable,” “judgments,” and “His ways.” There are many ways to describe God, but let us think of just three: (1) omnipresence, (2) omnipotence, and (3) omniscience. These are fairly common words among believers, but we may need a reminder: (1) being present at all times; (2) all powerful; and (3) all knowing and all wise. (1) He is everywhere and sees everything, and we have a very limited perspective. (2) He creates and sustains everything, and we are weak in every sense. (3) He knows all, and we know very little. Colossians 1:9-18 expands these thoughts. Do not judge yourself too harshly if you don’t understand some things in Scripture. Simply rely on our ever-present, all-powerful and all-knowing God to teach us the things we need to know.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, I pray with King David, “Teach me Your way, O Lord…” (Psalm 27:11). As Jesus said, “My sheep know My voice,” and I’m doing my best to listen to Your thoughts. I’m a slow learner, but I believe I am learning. I ask for more of Your presence, more of Your power, and more of Your wisdom, at least as much as You know I can handle. Thank You Lord. Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
When Norma-Jean and I went to plant a congregation in Canada’s atomic energy region (Chalk River/Deep River, Ontario), one of the first things I did was buy an old school bus to pick up children for Sunday School. On one side I painted, “Teach me Your way, O Lord,” and on the other, “Study to show yourself approved unto God.” I had taught public school in Chalk River previously, and I learned some valuable lessons. For example, I met almost daily for several months at 7 a.m. with a boy with special needs. He was very intelligent, but totally distracted from his studies. With special attention, this boy made up two years’ worth of lessons in six months and caught up with his age group. I’ve been easily distracted throughout my life, but God has given me “special attention.” It happens early in the morning and has become a pattern in my life for decades now.
