The Colorado National Monument, located in the western part of the state, is a land of high desert beauty. Juniper and pinion forests provide a striking contrast to the red rock. Enormous monoliths reach toward Heaven. Sheer canyon walls cut deep within the Colorado Plateau. To stand on top of this plateau and see deep into the canyon is a humbling moment.
“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.
These canyon depths remind me that I have a God Who has a depth of wisdom and knowledge I’ll never understand. These canyon depths remind me that no matter how long and hard I may search, I can never fathom the way He works.
I don’t know about you, but there have been times in my life that He worked in such a way, that if I didn’t know better, I would question His love for me. That’s why it is so important to know truth from Scripture. It teaches us that God works in ways that may seem contrary to what we feel He should do, but He always works for His glory and our good, and He is to be trusted.
Next time you see the depth of a valley or canyon, remember your God not only created that masterpiece, but He holds more wisdom, knowledge, and understanding than that vastness could ever contain. And we are the beneficiaries of His wisdom.
