I love quality time conversations. There is nothing superficial about them. They are not just passing the time. It is not a discussion about the weather or current events. No, they have depth because they involve the communion between two hearts. It is a precious time for sharing back and forth about our hopes and dreams. We each are listening from our heart. It is eye to eye contact that says, ‘I care about what is in your heart.’
Psalm 92:5 says, “O Lord, how great are Your works! Your thoughts are very deep.” The Lord is never superficial. He knows our heart’s thoughts. He knows the motives behind every thought. Therefore all His communion with us is deep. He loves to impart His wisdom, open His word to us, share His desires, and give us revelational insights.
Job 26:14 says, “Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways, and how small a whisper we hear of Him! But the thunder of His power who can understand?” C. S. Lewis said: God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
I love to think about Romans 11:33. It says, “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!” We will never plumb the depths of God’s ways, character, attributes, or wisdom. However, He delights in unfolding as much as we can handle. We are finite, but He is infinite. Infinite means that it is impossible to measure.
Colossians 2:3 says, “In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Note the word ‘all’ because it means everything without exception. The world system has no wisdom for us, because He has it all. We do not have His wisdom unless He imparts it to us. He knows we need His wisdom and He says to ask. James 1:5 says that if we need wisdom to navigate through our trials, all we have to do is ask. He gives liberally, abundantly, profusely, and like manna, just as much as we gather.
Here are two of my favorite verses about His depth from the Amplified. 1 Corinthians 2:10 says, “Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the (Holy) Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God (the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny).”
Psalm 25:14 says, “The secret (of the sweet, satisfying companionship) of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its (deep, inner) meaning.”
He uses our meditating in His word to draw us to Himself. He unfolds, expands, and opens our understanding so we can drink in the depth of His wisdom. He lavishes us with previously hidden truths when we seek Him with our heart. He delights to reveal Himself to those who come to dine. Intimate communion is not piecemeal, it is partaking of His sumptuous word-banquet. He is our True Satisfyer.
