Our limitations in the face of our Supreme God

Romans 11:33-36 (NLT)

33 Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!


34 For who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice?[l]

35 And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back?[m]

36 For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.


We have serious limitations in relation to God :

- we can't fanthom His ways; His thoughts are higher than our thoughts;

- we cannot counsel God, we can't tell God what He has to do;

- we cannot outgive God so that He owes us something; we cannot bribe Him to give us His favour.

Praise God, because of our limitations, God has graciously provided us with His divine enablement of the Holy Spirit to teach us all about Him and to reveal His thoughts with us. For everything comes from Him and exists by His power and is intended for His glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.

Rejoice
