Worship Him

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.

Romans 11:33-36

We have looked at this passage for two days and have looked at the fact that God is so much higher than we could ever even think of being.  God has infinitely more wisdom, knowledge and power than we could ever know.

The last verse of this passage and chapter gives us a thought that we can use to help ourselves worship Him: “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever.  Amen.”

It is important for us to remember that everything we have and enjoy comes from God and through God.  If we have health, it comes from God.  If we have strength, it comes from God.  If we have family or friends, they come directly from God.  If we have a Bible to read, it has come from God.  If we have eternal life, it is from God and through God.

We can look around at creation and see all that God has made.  The trees and the stars are His – there for His pleasure and created by Him.  No matter what we are or what we have, we have it from and through God.  Sometimes we tend to forget those things.  Sometimes we can let pride creep in and begin to think that we are the source of those good things in our lives.  But everything is from God and for God.

For those reasons, it is important that we say with Paul, “…to whom be glory for ever.  Amen.”
