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 (limitless) 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 unlimited wisdom is shown through His Divine purpose. He not only knows what we need in our lives but when we need it. We most definitely can learn through the trials God has allowed in our lives. But we must recognize that His Word teaches all people will suffer some kind of adversity in their lifetime.
Have you ever felt that your prayers seemed to go unanswered while you‘re experiencing the greatest trial 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.
