“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!” – Romans 11:33
The whole of Paul’s Roman epistle is glorifying the wonderful works of God, while exposing the depravity of man. It details the glorious plan of salvation and the enormous sacrifice of Christ on the cross, whereby fallen man is not only released from slavery to sin; delivered from eternal condemnation and reconciled back to God – but saved by grace through faith in Him; made a new creation in Christ; made a citizen of heaven and a joint-heir with the Son of God; bestowed with the riches of God’s grace; in-dwelt by the Holy Spirit; eternally secure in His gracious love – and so much more.
No surprise that near the end of this letter to the Romans.. Paul breaks into an escalating doxology of praise and worship as he cries out from the core of his being: Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how unfathomable are His ways! They are beyond tracing out.. for they come from sovereign choice of God’s divine righteousness and His everlasting grace.
The Lord is indeed rich in goodness and grace; mercy and love -wisdom and knowledge and power and in Christ we too have been made rich in everything – for He has bestowed on us the riches of His grace in Christ Jesus our Saviour, and by faith, we have a rich reward that is kept for us in heaven.
The riches of His wisdom are unsurpassed and the riches of His judgements are altogether righteous. His ways are incomprehensible; His knowledge is unsearchable; His love is never-ending; His judgements are righteous and His strength is invincible. He carries out great and mighty works, which are marvellous to behold and His glorious deeds are without number. Who can know the mind of God and yet He has made His ways known to the children of men.. through the Person and work of His dearly beloved Son – and by His grace we have the mind of Christ.
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. Everything visible and invisible originate with Him and comes from Him. All things live through Him, and all things centre in Him for He is the Alpha and Omega – the Author and Finisher of our faith. To Him be all praise and glory forever and ever! Amen
