Romans 11:33-34 KJV
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counselor?”
God is infinite in wisdom and knowledge. He always knows what is best for us and He knows the best way to bring it to pass. God’s infinite wisdom is shown in bringing good out of evil, beauty out of ashes and molding us into His image. He not only knows what we need but when we need it. Most godly character traits can only be developed through trials in our lives, or what we call, adversity.
Have you ever felt that your prayers seemed to go unanswered while you‘re experiencing the greatest adversity in your life? Have you asked, “Is all that I am going through really good for me and will I be able to thank God for all that He’s brought into my life?” The Bible tells us that we are to give thanks for all things for they are the will of God (I Thessalonians 5:18). Whether we see or experience beneficial results in this life or not, we are still to trust God. In His love, He wills what is best for us and in His wisdom He knows how to bring all things together for our good.
There are times when we question God’s ability to cause all things to come together for our best and debate within ourselves if these circumstances will be profitable. Have we missed the point in all that God has allowed? Have we missed the learning possess that God desires for us to grow through? Each circumstance in our life, whether we think it good or bad, is for the purpose of gaining knowledge, acquiring understanding and obtaining wisdom through God’s Word. In the Lord’s providential care for us, He orchestrates everything in life to accomplish His will even through suffering and pain.
Lord, I trust Your wisdom in every circumstance of my life.
