Does God Ask For Your Advice?

Have you met anyone who knows perfectly the mind of God?

Let’s make it easier. Have you met anyone who thinks or acts like they know the mind of God? Someone so smart that they think God asks them for advice?

I will answer for me—Yes. I have met such people. Or, maybe like Dostoyevsky’s Grand Inquisitor, they wish God would take their advice.

So had the Apostle Paul as he wrote these words to the Christ-followers in Rome:

Is there anyone around who can explain God?

Anyone smart enough to tell him what to do?

Anyone who has done him such a huge favor that God has to ask his advice?

Romans, from The Message translation

I read those words this morning and they hit me like that soccer ball struck from a few yards away directly into my nose. Down I went.

Meditate on these words that Paul writes next:

Everything comes from him,

Everything happens through him,

Everything ends up in him.

Always glory! Always praise!

Romans, from The Message translation

The best guides I have discovered are humble. Best advice is to emulate that.
