God’s Actions Are Not Experimental

Known to God are all His works from the beginning of the world (Acts 15:18).

Sometimes it appears that Christianity views God as having somehow lost control of His universe, and is now bumbling His way through the course of time trying to see what will work to accomplish His will. Nothing could be further from the truth!

God is not operating on the fly. He does not rule over His universe by the seat of His pants. God possesses all knowledge. There is absolutely nothing lacking in His understanding. There is nothing that He does not know.

God’s Knowledge Is Perfect

… Him Who is perfect in knowledge (Job 37:16).

God’s Understanding Is Infinite

… His understanding is infinite (Psalms 147:5).

God Knows All Things

… God … knows all things (I John 3:20).

God Declares the End from the Beginning

I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:9-10).

God Declares Things that Are Not Yet Done

… I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me, … declaring from ancient times the things that are not yet done (Isaiah 46:9-10).

God’s Counsel Stands; He Does All that Pleases Him

My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure (Isaiah 46:9-10).

Regardless of what His finite creatures may have to say, the infinite God of Scripture is all-knowing. Period. Not only does God have all knowledge, He also possesses “manifold” (KJV), “multifarious” (CLNT), “all-embracing” (TCNT), “wisdom, of innumerable aspects” (Weymouth) (Ephesians 3:10).

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out! (Romans 11:33).

God is not conducting an experiment. God is not attempting to find out what will work and what will not. Creation is not God’s large guinea pig or some kind of continuous experiment in a cosmic research lab. God is filled with complete knowledge and wisdom; He always knows exactly what He is doing. None of His actions are experimental. We can have absolute confidence in Him.

Rest in Father, He knows exactly what He is doing!
