thoughts for the day...unfortunately from someone else's mind...not mine.

romans 11:33, 36b oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways . . . to him be glory forever. Amen.

faith is required of thee, and a sincere life, not loftiness of intellect, nor deepness in the mysteries of God.—thomas à kempis

we are so tempted to ask questions of God rather than simply trusting Him. from the great philosophers to the simplest of minds we seem to want answers. the infinite transcendence of God has always caused human pride to rebel. the final frontier for paul was his intellectual pride. when he found humility before a holy and loving God, he found relief from his endless questions. what God asks, is for us to employ the faith He gives and trust His obvious "wisdom and knowledge." he has demonstrated His worthiness; now can we walk humbly before Him and trust Him with the mysteries?
