When it comes to our understanding of what God understands, His wisdom and knowledge are insurmountable. This is a truth repeatedly posited throughout Scripture. At the same time, Scripture makes abundantly clear, the God we serve is a knowable God. The omniscience of God, while fully unfathomable, is intimately connected to His will for this world, the Church, and our lives. The nature of being all-knowing includes a foreordained will. This logical conclusion carries deep implications, some of which many Christians would rather skip over.

John Calvin writes, “true and sound wisdom consists almost entirely of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves.” If we don’t know who God is, we can never truly know ourselves. Having a right understanding of who God is as He presents Himself in Scripture is paramount for understanding ourselves.
