Capsule for the Day

"How rich are the depths of God – how deep his wisdom and knowledge – and how impossible to penetrate his motives or understand his methods! Who could ever know the mind of the Lord? Who could ever be his counsellor... All that exists comes from him; all is by him and for him..."

The text from Romans 11:33-36 describes the God who is with us at the same time beyond our grasp or our comprehension. We search for Him; we struggle to understand His ways. But His ways aren't ours... We can't fully know His motives but we can align our desires with His in prayer.

It is futile to try to penetrate the depths of God's wisdom with our limited categories of reasoning. We have to assent to Revelation and meet the God who has found us in Christ Jesus. It is only by so doing that we will come to know God as He truly is and appreciate His ways.
