Today’s Reading Romans 9-11
Does history scare you or excite you? After surveying the pages of Israel’s history and seeing God’s fingerprints on every page, Paul bursts forth in a spontaneous expression of praise and worship: “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!” (11:33)
For Paul, it is like thumbling through old scrapbooks of the history of his people, and recalling the faithfulness of God in the midst of unbelief. Who would hesitate to entrust the future to a God like that?
Pull out some old photograph or scrapbook albums and spend a few minutes reviewing God’s faithfulness to you and your family. Where did He meet the unexpected needs? Provide safety? Heal illness? Give blessings you never dreamed of? Now express your confidence in Him for future needs, and close your time of prayer by reading out loud 11:36.
