The Greatness Of God
Please open your Bible and read:
(Psalm 139:1 – 18)
God is infinite. It’s difficult for us with limited human minds to imagine exactly what that means, but it’s important to think about His greatness. His love is immeasurable. Likewise, He is boundless in righteousness, mercy, and justice. Time and space cannot contain Him.
Can we go anywhere that God is not? There may be times when we think we want to hide from Him, but thankfully, there’s nowhere we can go that is out of His reach. The last thing we should want is to be separated from Him. As believers, we are forever connected to God because He is eternal. He calls Himself the “Alpha and Omega,” which means the beginning and the end. That is not to say the Lord started at some point in eternity past and ends somewhere in the future. Instead, it means that when time and space began, He started it. When it ends, He will still be there – He is the one “who is and who was and who is to come” (Revelation 1:8). This was a revolutionary concept for the crowd of Jews to whom Jesus announced, “Before Abraham was born, I am.” (John 8:58) They understood that He claimed to be eternal, saying He was one with Yahweh (the Lord’s name, which means “I am”) – and they attempted to kill Him for blasphemy. (v. 59)
Not only is God infinite and eternal; He is also unchanging. (James 1:17) So much of what we believe is based upon this characteristic of God. We can trust in His promises because they never change, and we can trust in His love because it is an absolute certainty.
