 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and unfathomable are his ways. Romans 11:33



This verse has come to my mind many times in the last few weeks, so I thought I would just take time to explore and ponder on it.  Allow it to sit on my mind and heart …

Oh the depth of the riches … the inexhaustible unfathomable fullness of the riches. …. men’s riches are shallow and empty but God’s riches are limitless, deep and immensely valuable.

Of the wisdom and knowledge of God!….God’s mind, insight, and thoughts are utterly profound.  The God that created this universe and all the wonders yet to be discovered about it…his wisdom and knowledge are beyond being conceivable by our meager human minds.   God knows everything – there is NOTHING he doesn’t know. Everything works to His plan. God’s wisdom and knowledge is not flawed, tainted, or limited as our human perception is … His Wisdom and Knowledge is PERFECT – that fact in and of itself astounds me. 

How unsearchable are His judgments ….God has all authority his verdicts/ decisions are incapable for us to analyze. Try as we might we can’t know his waysit is not always meant for us to understand ( and he owes us NO explanation). 

And unfathomable His ways … Our Heavenly Father’s ways are not traceable ..they are infinitely vast and completely beyond our comprehension. God’s ways span all of time beginning to end – He IS the ALPHA and  the  OMEGA. We are underequipped to even begin to understand all of his plans purposes methods and paths. Truly consider the awesomeness of his power and plans.  God spoke and their was light – he created the heavens and the earth when there was nothing but void.  I look upon creation and am truly amazed at the intricacies and detail that God put into everything he created… mountains, beaches, seashells, leaves, varieties of flowers, animals, stars, sunsets, human beings,  – the list is limitless.    We are restricted individually by time, space, experiences, et al.  but God  has no restrictions.   He sees the past present and future. God is not taken off guard by things that happen he is not surprised by our actions or reactions. 


αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀνεξιχνίαστοι αἱ ὁδοὶ  ( in Greek) – 

His ways are past finding out – incomprehensible – limitless !


Oh, the depth of the riches of both the wisdom and knowledge of God! How (unfathomable, inscrutable) unsearchable are His judgments (His decisions)! And how unfathomable (untraceable, mysterious, undiscoverable) are His ways (His methods, His paths)!
