He Has Far Better Solutions To The Problems Of Life Than We Are Capable Of Devising

Romans 11:33-36 (New International Version)~(NIV)Doxology 33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and[a] 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?”[b]35 “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?”[c]36 For from him and through him and for him are all things.To him be the glory forever! Amen.

Romans 11:33-36

Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? —Exodus 15:11

One blustery day in June, our family, holidaying in the Canadian Rockies, went to a tourist site that was billed as a “must see.” The cold wind made me reluctant to go on until I saw a group of people returning from the scenic spot. “Is it worth it?” I asked. “Definitely!” was their response. That gave us the incentive to go on. When we finally reached the spot, its beauty rendered us virtually speechless. “Wow!” was all we could manage.

Paul reached that point as he wrote about the work of God in saving Jew and Gentile in the book of Romans. Three things about God “wowed” him.

First, God is ALL-WISE (11:33). His perfect plan of salvation shows that He has far better solutions to the problems of life than we are capable of devising.”

Second, God is all-knowing. His knowledge is infinite. He needs no counselor (v.34) and nothing surprises Him!

Third, God is all-sufficient (v.35). No one can give to God what He has not first given to them. Nor can anyone ever repay Him for His goodness.

We can say with Moses, “Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?” (Ex. 15:11 ESV). What a marvelous God we serve!  — C. P. Hia

By God’s grace I stand on tiptoe,Viewing all His wonders grand,Praising Him who freely gave me .Simple faith to understand! —Bosch

In God’s character and in His creation, we see His majesty
