his paths

5 Mar
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
      How unsearchable his judgments,
      and his paths beyond tracing out!
 "Who has known the mind of the Lord?
      Or who has been his counsellor?" 
 "Who has ever given to God,
      that God should repay him?"
 For from him and through him and to him are all things.
      To him be the glory forever! Amen.
      – Romans 11:33-36
When I get a little glimpse of how deep and long God’s giant story is, with all its characters and grand overarching plotline, and subplots and stories and events interlinking and twists in the tale and chains of events starting and growing and dividing and multiplying, and all of us somewhere in there… I stop and agree with Paul. At moments like Na’s baptism on Sunday, for instance. Flipping heck, all the neat endings I presume to think up are amateur rubbish from a channel 5 soap. I try to tell him where each chapter should end. But I’m wrong and the way he fits it all together is infinitely more artful. He planned it all out before I started reading. His ultimate epic would overflow the Bodleian.
His paths beyond tracing out…
