God’s Truth for Trying Times - 10/5/20


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: ‬Romans‬ ‭11:33-36‬

“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! "For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?" "Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?" For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.”
‭‭(Romans‬ ‭11:33-36‬)


CONSIDER: Everything in our lives is a good, gracious gift from God. This includes the painful as well as the joyful. Our lives come from him. We live through his strength. And we live to the praise of his glorious grace in Christ. That is why our hearts proclaim and the church declares together, glory to God alone!


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
