“I don’t get it!” My daughter slapped her pencil down on the desk. She was working on a math assignment, and I’d just begun my “job” as a homeschooling mom/teacher. We were in trouble. I couldn’t recall what I’d learned thirty-five years ago about changing decimals into fractions. I couldn’t teach her something I didn’t already know, so we watched an online teacher explain the skill.

As human beings, we’ll struggle at times with things we don’t know or understand. But not God; He’s the all-knowing One—the omniscient One. Isaiah wrote, “Who can . . . instruct the Lord as his counselor? Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge, or showed him the path of understanding?” (Isaiah 40:13–14). The answer? No one!        

Humans have intelligence because God created us in His own image. Still, our intelligence is just an inkling of His. Our knowledge relies on what others have learned before us, but God knows everything from eternity past to eternity future (Psalm 147:5). Our knowledge is increasing today with the aid of technology, but we still get things wrong. Jesus, however, knows all things “immediately, simultaneously, exhaustively and truly,” as one theologian put it.

No matter how much humans advance in knowledge, we’ll never surpass Christ’s all-knowing status. We’ll always need Him to bless our understanding and to teach us what’s good and true.

Long day Our Daily Bread, family, and thanks for joining us for today's devotional reading. It was written by Jennifer Benson shuttle and she titled it the greatest teacher. I don't get it.

I daughter slapped her pencil down on her desk. She was working on a math assignment and I just begun my job as a homeschooling mom/teacher we were in trouble. I couldn't recall what I'd learned 35 years ago about changing decimals and fractions. I couldn't teacher something I didn't already know. So we watched an online teacher explain the skill as human beings will struggle at times with things we don't know or understand, but not God. He's the all-knowing one, the omniscient one. Isaiah wrote who can instruct the Lord as his counselor whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him and who taught him the right way. Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding the answer. No one humans had intelligence because God created us in his own image. Still our intelligence is just an inkling of his iron knowledge is limited, but God knows everything from eternity past to eternity future. Our knowledge is increasing. Today, with the aid of technology, but we still get things wrong. Jesus, however, knows all things immediately simultaneously exhaustively and truly as one theologian put it, no matter how much humans advance in knowledge will never surpass Christ's all-knowing status will always need him to bless our understanding and to teach us.

What's good and true today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Isaiah chapter 40 verses 12 through 14 who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand or with the breath of his hand marked off the heavens, who has held the dust of the earth in a basket or weighed the mountains on scales in the hills in a balance who can fathom the spirit of the Lord are instruct the Lord as his counselor whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him and who taught him the right way. Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding.

Let's pray dear Jesus, thank you for the intelligence and ability to think and reason that you have built into the human mind. You possess all knowledge and wisdom and we desperately need you to teach us. Help us to keep humble heart before you. We are always ready to learn whatever you have to teach us. Thank you, Lord. It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening today. My name is Alicia Reisinger and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
