“Oh, 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 has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor? Or who has first given to Him and it shall be repaid to him?’ For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.” Romans 11:33-36
Almighty and all-knowing Heavenly Father, thank you that in spite of all the chaos and insecurity around me, I can find peace and joy in knowing that You guide the affairs of the world and my life with infinite wisdom.
Thank you also that in [Jesus] are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:3
Thank you for the may ways that You govern Your creation with Your unseen hand. For example: You are “…He [who] gives to all life, breath, and all things.“ (Acts 17:25) and You are “…He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food…” (2 Corinthians 9:10)
I praise you, Father, for giving me the ability and practical wisdom necessary to live on this earth. Help me also to recognize the fact that Your ways are much higher than mine. “‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ says the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
In light of these Scriptures and many more, help me to take the situations in life which I cannot comprehend, put them into the “I do not understand” department and trust Your wisdom and foresight for the solutions. For Your Word says “[cast] all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
I bring these thoughts and requests to You in Jesus’ Wonderful Name. Amen.
