Romans 11:33-34 (NLT)
33 Oh, what a wonderful God we have! How great are his riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his methods! 34 For who can know what the Lord is thinking? Who knows enough to be his counselor?

Paul has often written on the grace of the Lord, but here he writes on God’s wisdom and knowledge. Something so great none of us can understand, nor has anyone been able to understand from ages ago.

When a couple is having marriage problems the best place to go is a marriage counselor. However, many couples walk into the counseling session to fix the other spouse. Before the counselor even gets a chance to speak, one of the spouses may have already rattled off all the reasons why the other spouse needs to change this or that. They haven’t even begun to listen to the words or advice of the counselor before they have arrived at a solution. Often we do the same with God. We have a great and mighty counselor, but instead of listening, we try to tell God what we want, what we need, where we want to go in life. We don’t stop to think just maybe He has a better plan for us. So take time to ask your personal counselor, God, what the best plans are for you life. I’m sure He has some good answers for you. Pray that God will counsel you on life and give you direction. Pray that God will give you discernment and understanding to follow through with His plans.
