Romans 11:33: Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!

Romans 11:33 NIV

As we seek the Lord we grow in the wisdom of God.  As we spend time in prayer and in God’s word our lives are supernaturally transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.  It is the Holy Spirit who lives within us and when we pray and spend time in God’s word we give the Holy Spirit the opportunity to transform our lives.

Too many times we allow the busyness of life to keep us from drawing near to the Lord.  But when we understand the value of abiding in Him and draw near, we will prioritize our day to make time to draw near to the Lord.  If we expect to be transformed and grow by simply attending service on Sunday morning we are deceiving ourselves.  The only way to truly be transformed by the Holy Spirit is developing a disciplined devotional life.
