O the depths!
(Charles Spurgeon, "The Treasury of David")
"O LORD, how great are Your works! Your thoughts are very deep!" Psalm 92:5
Man is superficial, God is inscrutable.
Man is shallow, God is deep.
"O LORD, how great are Your works!"
The Psalmist is lost in wonder. He utters an exclamation of amazement. How vast! How stupendous are the doings of Jehovah! All the creations of the Infinite One are great for number, extent, and glory, and design!
"Your thoughts are very deep!"
The Lord's thoughts and plans are as marvelous as His works.
His designs are as profound, as His doings are vast.
Creation is immeasurable, and the wisdom displayed in it unsearchable.
Providence is inexhaustible, and the divine decrees which originate it are inscrutable.
Redemption is grand beyond conception, and the thoughts of love which planned it are infinite.
Dive as we may, we shall never fathom the mysterious plan, or exhaust the boundless wisdom of the all-comprehending mind of the Lord. We can only stand by the fathomless sea of divine wisdom, and exclaim with holy awe, "O the depths!"
"O LORD, how great are Your works! Your thoughts are very deep!"
