INFINITE WISDOM

If you believe in the God of the Bible then you believe in a god that has infinite wisdom.  God is all knowing.  God always uses infinite wisdom in the application of his knowledge.  This is demonstrated in his creation, in his interactions with mankind as a whole, and in the individual direction of our lives. 

Being fully convinced of this truth, I have no worries or concerns.  Whatever the situation, I know that God has got it.  Right! 

Unfortunately, I have worries and concerns all the time.  Does this mean I’m not fully convinced?  I’d have to answer no it doesn’t.

If you’ve studied the life of King David, you are aware that he had his times of trials, sins, and difficulties.  There were many times in his life that he was worried and concerned, but he never lost his faith.  In Psalm 23 he writes, “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”    David did not waiver in his trust, but he often wrote about being perplexed at what God was doing.

As I go about my daily routine, I’m trusting God for the outcome, but I trust him with finite knowledge and wisdom.  I only see my little portion of the world in my miniscule moment of time.  I don’t understand what God is doing, and I can’t.  What I do know is that God is good, he loves me, and he has called me according to his purpose.  Even though I don’t understand his ways, I can trust in his infinite wisdom. 

Thus, I can join with King David in knowing: “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
