Who is God – Day 19

Romans 11:33-34

Oh the depth and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgements, and His paths beyond tracing out. Who has known the mind of The Lord. Or who has been His counsellor?

The Thought

These two verses refer to the God of knowledge which is “El-Deah” in Hebrew, and we find this word very clearly explained in 1 Samuel 2 where we read in Hannah’s prayer when she was about to dedicate her young son to the Lord for the rest of his life. She was leaving Samuel with the priest!

Many of us cannot imagine anyone doing that today! But she was so grateful for this son, and knew that he was an answer to prayer, so she decided to give him back to God at a very young age. This is part of her prayer as she let go of her son and gave him to the priest.

There is no one holy like The Lord. The Lord my horn (symbol of strength) is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance…. For the Lord is a God who knows, and by Him deeds are weighed. (1 Samuel 2:2-3).

Hannah’s courage in allowing Samuel to be brought up in the temple, and only see him once a year, has certainly blessed the family of God through hundreds of years. Samuel went on to be one of the greatest prophets that has ever lived. 2 books of the Old Testament give us a good account of who he was and what he did.


Praise God today for the God that both Paul and Hannah praised in our reading.

Praise God that He is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)!

Try to live this day as though God knows not only what you are doing, but what you are thinking as well.

Read Hannah’s story in 1 Samuel 1 & 2.
