Devotion for Thursday in the Fourth Week in Lent

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord,   or who has been his counselor?” Or who has given a gift to him   that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

~ Romans 11:33-36

Everything is from, through, and to God. We hear and say all of the words of God’s power and might and omniscience and omnipresence and majesty and glory. Yet we can’t get our human minds around them. They are too magnificent for us to even grasp a tidbit of them.

Lord God, I can’t grasp You—all the attributes that I know are Yours but that are beyond my understanding or imagination. Yet I will give You all the glory I can for the little of You I can feel. I can’t imagine magnitudes greater than I can fathom. But I praise and glorify You along with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit now and forever. Amen.

These daily devotions are available in a book The Grace of God, with all profits donated to Love for the Least to share the compassion of Christ with an unreached world. L4L shares the Good News of the Gospel with the least and unreached by making disciples of Jesus who make disciples (2 Tim 2:2) and by helping to meet the physical needs of the poorest of the poor.
