Out of the Box

Just try to imagine God, and then realize that you just put Him in a box. God is beyond understanding, God can’t be pinned down, and His attributes can’t be placed in a concise or exhaustive list.
God is outside of the ‘box.’

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the
wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out! *1
“Who has understood the mind of the Lord
or instructed him as his counselor?
Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him,
and who taught him the right way?
Who was it that taught him knowledge
or showed him the path of understanding? *2
Who has measured the waters in the
hollow of his hand,
or with the breadth of his hand
marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
or weighed the mountains on the scales
and the hills in a balance? *3

God is beyond imagination, so instead of imagining the depths of God’s love, experience it!!!

“…For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will-to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves” (Eph. 1:4-6).

*1- Romans 11:33
*2- Isaiah 40:13-14
*3- Isaiah 40:12
