Who can measure the wealth and wisdom and knowledge of God? Who can understand his decisions or explain what he does?
“Has anyone known
the thoughts of the Lord
or given him advice?
Has anyone loaned
something to the Lord
that must be repaid?”
Everything comes from the Lord. All things were made because of him and will return to him. Praise the Lord forever! Amen.
The wealth, wisdom and knowledge of God are all beyond our comprehension. The wealthiest man who ever lived has less than God's pocket change. The wisest man who ever lived can't begin to understand the most basic mysteries of God. And the man with the most knowledge hasn't even scratched the surface of God's information storehouse.
Made in God's image, man continually tries to be not only like God, but equal to Him. Even the most reprobate man who ever lived is like God because he too was made in God's image. But no man, even the most righteous comes close to being equal to God. That is where possibility ends and Almighty Awesomeness begins!
Being angry with God is like the man who runs out of his house to scream obscenities at a storm. His arms may flail, and his feet may stomp the ground, but storm doesn't even notice and is not affected by his rage.
But humbling yourself before the Lord will catch His eye and He will listen to your concern because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Will He then calm the storm? Not always, in fact sometimes the storm will grow even more violent because that is what the wisdom of God has determined to be the best. It is when God's best seems to be our worst that we are truly tested.
"Lord, I not only don't understand Your wisdom and will, I really don't like them much of the time. But Lord, have mercy on this poor man. Your best seems to be my worst. Be patient with me and change me so I can see everything in my life the way You see it. Amen."
