Does God work in mysterious ways?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“There is a rumor out there, that God works in mysterious ways, heck, even the Bible says He does. Well, the word ‘mysterious’ is not found anywhere in the Authorized King James Version of the Bible. In fact, no-one knows exactly; where this statement that, ‘God works in mysterious ways,’ actually comes from. Maybe this scripture is where it comes from Rom 11:33, “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!” So does the Bible really say that God works in mysterious ways, and what does that really mean? Now, it’s certainly true that to our natural mind God’s ways may appear mysterious. Even what He commanded His people to do doesn’t always make sense to our natural minds when we read the Old Testament. For example, why would Joshua and the children of Israel have to march around the walls of Jericho seven times in a week before the walls fell, after they blew the trumpets? Why did God tell Moses to lift up his staff, and only then would the Red Sea part?” – Pastor Carl
