"Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen." (Romans 11:33-36)
We are reading through Romans 11 tomorrow in life group. Paul is finishing up the doctrinal section of the letter, teaching, explaining all these mysteries and theological concepts, etc. . . . and I just love how he finishes this section . . . with praise, with adoration, with worship.
I pray that at the end of our “bible study”, our “quiet time” whatever it may be, it would bring us to this place. A place where we can step back, perhaps not fully understanding God’s way or plan, but worshipping Him because He is good, He is beyond our thinking, He is the source, sustenance, and the focus of it all . . .
Let our learning about God lead to our worship of God.
