Live Loved

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!

[Romans 11:33]

Loved with a Wise Love

God’s omniscience governs his omnipotence. Infinite knowledge rules infinite strength. “He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength” (Job 9:4 kjv). “With him is wisdom and strength” (12:13 kjv). “He is mighty in strength and wisdom” (36:5 kjv).

His power is not capricious or careless. Quite the contrary. His wisdom manages and equals his strength. Paul announced, “Oh, the depths of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!” (Romans 11:33 niv).

His knowledge about you is as complete as his knowledge about the universe. “Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether… Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them” (Psalm 139:4, 16 esv).

The veils that block your vision and mine do not block God’s. Unspoken words are as if uttered. Unrevealed thoughts are as if proclaimed. Unoccurred moments are as if they were history. He knows the future, the past, the hidden, and the untold. Nothing is concealed from God. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present.

[It’s Not About Me]

Heavenly Father,

Your mighty wisdom is mind-boggling. Your knowledge is complete. Nothing stumps you or perplexes you. Your wisdom is ruled by your infinite strength. You know everything about the past and the future. Nothing is hidden from you. Your mighty strength and wisdom are a firm foundation for all who believe in you. We can rely on you, as our faithful Father, to guide us, to teach us, to help us,

Amen.

You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it.

[Psalm 139:5-6]

The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.

[Psalm 138:8]

The Lord has been mindful of us; He will bless us.

[Psalm 115:12]
