"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! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, [are] all things: to whom [be] glory for ever. Amen."

                                                                                              Rom.11: 33-36

 

Human beings with their limitations are not of sufficient capacity to fully comprehend God’s essence but still we have quite enough information to understand the essence of what God wanted to tell us.

The Apostle Paul was a great disciple of God and as such he possessed a lot of knowledge and truth because God himself revealed it to him, but he also has doubts because he understood how little we as human beings know, so he wonders:

 

"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

and immediately afterwards in the next verse

                    ,, For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?”

                                                                                               Romans 11:34

Paul wonders, who is this man who dares to say that he has grasped all the wisdom of God and knows God so well that he could be his counselor, is there a man who thinks he could give something to God, what can we give to God and that before that we did not receive it again from God because He is the one who created everything and maintains everything. "

There are no such material things, there are none - everything we did, created is not ours, we just maybe shaped it in one way or another and in essence it is God's creation because we used some material good that we found in nature that God created, took we reworked it and then used it to shape some of our ideas. so we used God's creation to do something and now we should give that creation to God because maybe God will need it. This is essentially limiting God and descending to the level of man and we know that God it is not limited by anything, so this procedure is in direct contradiction with the essence of God, which we do not know enough but quite enough to realize that we should not do such things. Here is what God once said to his people about sacrifices and offerings:

"To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings [are] not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me."

                                                                                              Jer.6: 20

And now Paul concludes only what is right yet there is something that God expects of us and that is pleasing to God to hear, there is something that we can "give" to God

 .. For of him, and through him, and to him, [are] all things: to whom [be] glory for ever. Amen.”

                                                                                              Romans 11:36

The only thing we can "give" to God is to thank and praise God for the immeasurable grace and grace that He has given us abundantly and which He continues to give us abundantly.

Although God is Incomprehensible to our notions because we read that he writes that "God's ways are unexplored and unsearchable and that no one knows the Lord's thought" does not mean that we should not try to know at least a small part of God's incomprehensibility and incomprehensibility.

We should try to seek and learn because we read that God is telling us:

 

           "All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine,…!

                                                                                              2 Tim.3: 16

If God commands us to learn then it means that we can grow in knowing God and the truths that are revealed to us by seeking, questioning, and meditating on the word of God given to us in the Bible.

In order to try to understand at least a little of God's incomprehensibility and incomprehensibility, we only need to ask ourselves what we know about God's creative power and might. We live in a time when technology and science are at a very high level, but there is no clear answer or confirmation. There are many ideas about what actually happened and how our world works, but they are all unclear and none of them gives the correct answer and will not give it because only God knows the right answer and everything else is human attempts. to give some reasonable solution of course without the presence of God. and there is a problem because without God there is no answer or solution to that question. It would be fairest to say we do not know how our world was created because we do not have so much knowledge and we do not know how everything works perfectly. process takes place in a second and in order for someone to control all that, it would be necessary to be God because that requires an incomprehensible amount of knowledge and wisdom for us humans.

And such knowledge is possessed only by God, who is incomprehensible, and incomprehensible to the human mind.

Here is what the psalmist says on this subject in Psalm 8:

 

"O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

                                                                                               Ps.8: 1-9

And Job

"Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance. Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward. I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause: Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number: Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields: To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety. He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform [their] enterprise. He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong. They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night. But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty. So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth. Behold, happy [is] the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole. He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh. At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth. For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee. And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle [shall be] in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin. Thou shalt know also that thy seed [shall be] great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth. Thou shalt come to [thy] grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season. Lo this, we have searched it, so it [is]; hear it, and know thou [it] for thy good."

                                                                                              Job 5:5-27

“Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger. Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble. Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars. Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea. Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number. Lo, he goeth by me, and I see [him] not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not. Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou?”

                                                                                                Job 9: 5-12

"He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, [and] hangeth the earth upon nothing. He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them. He holdeth back the face of his throne, [and] spreadeth his cloud upon it. He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end. The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof. He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud. By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent. Lo, these [are] parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?"

                                                                                               Job 26: 7-14

"But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who [am] I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?"

                                                                                              2 Chronicles 2: 6

“But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?”

                                                                                              1 Kings 8:27

,,Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, [that] the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? [there is] no searching of his understanding.. "

                                                                                              Isa.40: 28

"As thou knowest not what [is] the way of the spirit, [nor] how the bones [do grow] in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

                                                                                              Ecclesiastes 11: 5

We have seen verses that tell us how incomprehensible and incomprehensible God is to us humans, we have seen a part of God's creations and knowledge to which we have no answers because we simply do not have so much knowledge, we are only God's creatures and God has always been, is and It will be God.

We can only confirm the following verses:

 

"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

 "Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.."

                                                                                              Ps.139: 6

                     "Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

                                                                                              Ps.145: 3

 ,, For of him, and through him, and to him, [are] all things: to whom [be] glory for ever. Amen."

                                                                                             Romans 11:36
