freedom to trust…

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
Romans 11:33
This verse has been echoing in my heart since yesterday… considering the depth… richness… of His wisdom and knowledge… in a world where very little seems to make sense to me…
In His omniscience… and sovereignty… He reigns…
In grace… and mercy… He reigns…
In righteousness… and goodness… He reigns…
But really…? I don’t often see it…
His grace… mercy…
His wisdom… knowledge…
where is it…?
when families implode… leaving little ones wounded…?
when people rebel… ignore… disregard… their Creator…?
when dis-ease… eats away… at bodies… minds… souls…?
But… OH… the depth of the wisdom and knowledge of God…!
beyond my understanding…
beyond my comprehension…
way beyond the capacity of my little brain…
He’s the One who sees from beginning to end…
the One who created knowing it would all fall apart…
the One prepared to send His Son to die for our freedom…
make a way for all things… ALL THINGS…
to be made new…

Finding freedom… to trust… His wisdom and knowledge…
Finding freedom… to be okay… not understanding what He’s up to right now… at peace… not being able to trace out His paths… in history… presently… or in the future…
Because He knows…
because He is good… merciful… gracious…
because He’s always right… just…
I don’t have to know…
I don’t have to understand…
because He does…
In the richness and depth of His wisdom and knowledge…
I find freedom… to trust…
Amen…
