He telleth the number of the stars… His understanding is infinite. The LORD lifteth up the meek.
Our God is infinite. He’s limited by no boundaries in time, space, or character. His qualities are bottomless; His attributes are endless; His power is matchless. There’s much about Him we don’t know, will not discover, and can never fathom. After all, if He were small enough to be comprehended, He wouldn’t be large enough to be worshipped. He is infinite and eternal in all the dimensions of His reality.
Our God is intimate. He encompasses us behind and before, beneath and above. He counts each footstep we take and every hair on our heads. From top to toe, we’re fully known, loved, and cared for by Him, today and tomorrow, both now and forever.
If He were infinite but not intimate, He’d be too vast to be known. If He were intimate but not infinite, He’d be too weak to be helpful. He who counts the stars also knows our names and lifts our hearts.
He is “our Father who art in heaven.”
He’s big enough to rule His mighty universe, yet small enough to live within my heart.
