Scripture: Romans 11

Would you really want a God that you could completely understand and explain? How simple and unimpressive that would be. We have a God that blows our minds! He blows my mind every day! Every time we open His word and really think about how big He is and what He’s capable of we should stand in awe of all that He is. He is awe-some!

And yet He meets us where we are, gives us the free gift of salvation, and shows mercy unlimited.

29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. 32 For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.

How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” 35 “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?”

36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. 

Amen.

Scripture: Isaiah 45

God has an end goal. He has things that will be done for Israel, and things that will be done for the whole Church, and things that will be done for the world.

He used Cyrus for His purpose even though Cyrus did not know Him:

For the sake of my servant Jacob,

and Israel my chosen,

I call you by your name,

I name you, though you do not know me.

Vs. 4

All of creation belongs to the Lord. He can and will use it for His purpose. From you and me, to presidents and politicians, to the very rocks and sea.

His will be done.

Scripture: Psalm 84

This is a beautiful Psalm of praise!

1 How lovely is your dwelling place,O LORD of hosts! 2 My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.

Apart from God there is no rest for the soul.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. 12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!

He is all that is good.
