Beyond Our Understanding

Sunset Sanibel Causeway

How great is God -- beyond our understanding!
The number of his years is past finding out.
Job 36:26

God's voice thunders in marveous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
Job 37:5

Can you find out the deep things of God?
Can you find out the limit of the Almighty?
It is khigher than heaven3—what can you do?
Deeper than Sheol—what can you know?
Its measure is longer than the earth
and broader than the sea.
Job 11:7-9
See also verses 1 Corinthians 13:12 , Hebrews 1:2  ,  Psalm 90:2

God is GREAT.  He is beyond our understanding. He is eternal. He was and Is and always will be. These verses address the magnificance of God. We are unable to concieve His glory, His holiness. We cannot begin to understand the details of His plan, the reason of what He does.

God is great
He is omnipotent.
He is eternal.
He is soverign
He is omnipresent
He is glorious
He is love
He is just
He is holy
He is good
He is perfect

We know Him through His creation. True believersin Christ know Him through His Word. Believers know Him through His goodness, grace, blessings and providence. God is great, yet we do not know how great He is. He is unsearchable.  His greatness is beyond all conception and expression of mankind.

The highest knowledge that we can have of God in this life is to know that He is above all we can think concerning Him.
St. Thomas Aquinas
