Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 11 March 2020


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!
(Romans 11:33)

Today’s Morsel:  One of the things about God's riches, wisdom, and knowledge is that it is impossible to understand or interpret with the natural mind.  They are in some cases inscrutable.  Hard to understand or interpret.  As Paul says, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.(1 Corinthians 2:14)  I believe the reason some folks or atheists are mean spirited is because they are trying to figure God out by natural means instead of spiritual means.  Maybe you are one of those who are seeing through a glass darkly right about now, as some religions have lots of rituals and rules, of which many of them are unspoken and inscrutable to the eyes and mind.  But again as Paul states, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.(2 Corinthians 4:3-4) But he continues, “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10)  Let me encourage you, if things are inscrutable and do not make sense to you, seek God for His Spirit and understanding and the things which seem strangely dim will come to light.  

Sing: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth, will go strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

Thought For Today:And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” 
(1 Timothy 3:16)
