GOD's mysterious ways


Romans 11:33-36

King James Version

33 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!

34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? 

or who hath been his counsellor?

35 Or who hath first given to him, 

and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

36 For of him, and through him, and to him, 

are all things: 

to whom be glory for ever. 


One of the many early things SPIRIT taught me about GOD, are His mysterious ways.

I've come to know that, through Scripture.

Three particular instances come to mind --

Where JESUS sprung from:

Hebrews 7:13-14

King James Version

13 For he of whom these things are spoken 

pertaineth to another tribe, 

of which no man gave attendance at the altar.

14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; 

of which tribe Moses spake nothing 

concerning priesthood.

Why Israel was selected:

Deuteronomy 7:7

King James Version

7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, 

nor choose you, 

because ye were more in number than any people; 

for ye were the fewest of all people:

The temporary blindness of Israel:

Romans 11:25

King James Version

25 For I would not, brethren, 

that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, 

lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; 

that blindness in part is happened to Israel, 

until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

So far, those the three mysteries reflect the ways of GOD.

Pure mystery.

In a way only GOD can judge.

But Scripture tells us why:

Isaiah 55:8-9

King James Version

8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 

neither are your ways my ways, 

saith the Lord.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, 

so are my ways higher than your ways, 

and my thoughts than your thoughts.

So, if we are wondering why the world is the way it is, why people are the way they are, why our lives are the way it is, and if change will occur, it all serves GOD's purpose.

We pray to know His will.
