The God Beyond Description

Psalm 145:3 “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.”

American Family Association host Rich Robertson wrote in an article that by Jesus Christ’s Great Commission, all Christians are called to a singular mission. We are to spend a lifetime pointing others to an infinitely greater attraction; Psalm 115:1 “Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.” We all struggle with egocentric pride and self-worth, becoming self-consumed in life with our dreams, goals, successes, defeats and our things-to-do lists. It helps for someone to stop us and reintroduce us to the glory and grandeur of our Almighty God. 

I encourage you to take a few minutes to reflect on the unparalleled greatness of our loving Creator. Psalm 99:5 “Exalt the Lord our God,
And worship at His footstool—
He is holy.” God is holy. He does not conform to a standard; He is a standard that we conform to. The Holy Only, sacred and set apart, absolutely sovereign and holy with an infinite, incomprehensible fullness of purity. 

1 Timothy 1:17 “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.” God is eternal. The human mind looks backwards in time until the dim past vanishes, then turns and looks into the future until thought and imagination collapse from exhaustion , and God is at both points, unaffected by either. 

Ephesians 3:20 “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” God is infinite. God knows no bounds. He knows no bounds. Whatever God is and all that God is, He is without limits.

Revelation 19:6 “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!” God is Omnipotent. The Almighty Creator of the heavens and the earth, who spoke everything into existence, is all-powerful with limitless power. 

Psalm 139:7-10 “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.” God is Omnipresent. God is, there and everywhere; close to everything and next to everyone.

Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” God is transcendent. God is exalted far above the created universe, so far above that human thought cannot imagine it. Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

Still consider that we live each day as subjects to this holy, eternal, infinite, omnipotent, transcendent God. 1 Chronicles 29:11 “Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power and the glory, the victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all.” 

In Christ, Brian
