Read Through Romans – Day 21

isaiah 45 15

Mysteries can be exciting.  Whether it’s a movie or a book, it’s entertaining to engage in the story by attempting to solve the mystery yourself.  Back in my college days, I watched a mystery movie and shared my thoughts about the outcome halfway through the movie.  My friend, who had watched the movie before, did not reveal the final twist.  And I was delighted to discover my sleuthing skills were correct!  (This is noteworthy only because I’m not known for solving mysteries like this…)

Not all mysteries are solvable.  And that’s not a bad thing, especially when it comes to our Father God.  He is mysterious and we learn more about Him today.  Read Romans 11:11-36.

Here are some questions for you to consider:

Our loving Heavenly Father is mysterious.  Isaiah 45:15 says it well:

Truly, O God of Israel, our Savior, you work in mysterious ways.

Maybe you’re wrestling with understanding who God is.  And that’s OK!  Don’t give up!  Ask God to grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation (of insight into mysteries and secrets) in the (deep and intimate) knowledge of Him (Ephesians 1:17 AMP).  Ask Him your questions.  And let Jeremiah 29:11-14 encourage you:

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. 14 I will be found by you,” says the Lord. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.”

Come to the feet of Jesus with all your questions, all your burdens… and lay them down.  Jesus wants to take it all from you.  At Your Feet by Casting Crowns encourages you to do this right now.
