“O, 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.”
Paul concludes all this thoughts with a spirited doxology. When the thinks about God’s salvation history through Jesus, described in chapters 1-11 in the book of Romans, Paul must break forth in praise. Quoting from the book of Job, Paul says that God’s wisdom, power and methodologies are beyond human comprehension.
No one has ever given God anything. To the contrary, all we have comes from God as a precious gift from his divine hand. Therefore, God alone deserves all the praise. God alone deserves all the glory forever.
When you look at creation, does doxology flow from your heart and start to flow from your lips? When you contemplate all God has given to you, do you spontaneously start to praise him?
God’s plan of salvation for us personally and people everywhere should always evoke great praise. He is worthy of it.
Praise him today!
