Our Immeasurable, Measuring GodCan you find out the deep things of God?
Can you find out the limit of the Almighty?
It is higher than heaven--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)
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised,
and his greatness is unsearchable. (Ps. 145:3)
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand
and marked off the heavens with a span,
enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure
and weighed the mountains in scales
and the hills in a balance?
Who has measured the Spirit of the LORD,
or what man shows him his counsel? (Isa. 40:12-13)
Jen Wilkin asks, "Who has measured everything? God has, Who has measured God? No one."
Part of me feels overwhelmed by these truths--unable to even attempt to understand how we could be close to the God of this universe. The One who is immeasurable, who is over all things, and in control. But the other part of me feels peace. I have peace because I know that He's in control of things I can't understand. I can rest in this. Like the child who rests in the care of his parents who know the bigger plan for the day, or trip, or move. The child doesn't have to worry about all of the logistics and how it will work out. The parents have the plan under control. I want to rest in knowing God more and more each day in that healthy parent/child relationship.
