#Passion2015 Session 5 notes: Matt Chandler

Passion 2015 Session 5 – Matt Chandler

Romans 11:33-36 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

4 things about God [from this passage] that will change and anchor our souls:

  1. God’s transcendent wealth
    • There was nothing until God said something.
  2. He is sovereign in his knowing
    • 1 Corinthians 3:18-23 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.
  3. God is inscrutable
    • Job 38:2-4 “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Dress for action like a man;
      I will question you, and you make it known to me. “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding.
    • James 4:14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
    • Romans 9:20 But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?”
    • Will we believe and trust that He’s loving?
    • God is with you in the mess.
    • Look at the cross.
    • I am for you, I am not against you.
  4. God’s perfect self-sufficiency
  5. God’s glorious self-regard
    • Psalm 23:1-3 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures.
      He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
    • God is for God.
    • If God is about God then it’s not about me.
    • Repentance, confession, freedom, get up.
