Romans 11: 33 (NIV) Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and[i] knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! 34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord?
The New American Standard declares that last phrase: V34 “How unfathomable His ways!” Maybe you have come to discover this in your own experience. You’ve tried to “trace out His path” and you can’t pull it off. You’ve tried to fathom His “unfathomable” ways and you can’t figure it out. It just doesn’t make sense how God handles His business. It blows the microprocessor of your mind, but don’t worry the Lord is beyond figuring out family of God.
You have begun to walk with God like never before in your life, but in that path of obedience, you have come across situations that simply defy explanation or reason. And you have encountered situations that seem to be contradictory. That’s how God works; accept it!
It may not make sense to you for years, if ever. But that’s okay. I’ve come to realize I wouldn’t understand His thought processes and planned procedures, even if the Lord took time to explain them to me. I just have to trust the Lord and know all things are working together for my Good and your good to sisters and brothers (Romans 8:28). It was a wonderful day for me when I finally realized I don’t have to explain the will of God. That’s not my task. My job is simply to obey it and believe “Everything is in Divine order”!
