The Mind of The Lord
34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?”
35 “Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay them?”
36 For from him and through him and for him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.
The subject of psychology is a fairly new discipline compared to other areas of study including astronomy, physics, biology and other sciences. Psychology is the science of the mind or of mental states and processes or the science of human and animal behavior. We are all very interested in understanding our own human behavior and wanting to understand how to interact with others. The biggest challenge is in understanding ourselves.
Paul asks ‘who has known the mind of the Lord?’ This is a rhetorical question as we all know what the answer will be. The answer is nobody has known the mind of the Lord. God knows the psychology of human beings. He knows our minds, thoughts, attitudes, behaviors and our hearts. He knows what we need and knows what is best for us. It is never about what I can provide for God as He does not need anything. He does have expectations that we give our hearts to him.
