Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; 

his greatness no one can fathom.

Psalm 145:3

*          *          *          *          *

Our God is Infinite.

*          *          *          *          *

He is without limits.

  He exists outside of time and space.

He cannot be measured. 

He cannot be contained.

He is inexhaustible.  

Here is another definition for Infinite,  

from the author of the book “Knowledge of the Holy,”

A W Tozer says:

Without boundaries and without limit,




forever and ever,

without any possible measure or limitation. 

You can’t measure God in any direction.

 Being Infinite is a part of every attribute of our God, meaning, our God has:

 Infinite love,

Infinite justice,

Infinite wisdom.

 Each attribute of our God is intimately tied to this one attribute, 


         *          *          *          *          * 

My Triune God is Infinite.

Wonderful Father, what do the mystics of old say about you concerning time? 

“Time is in you –

You are not in time” 

You created time to benefit finite man, yet you are not restricted by it.

What does Peter say concerning You and time?

…do not forget this one thing, dear friends: 

With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

2 Peter 3:8

Also in Psalms we read;

In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, 

       and the heavens are the work of your hands.

 They will perish, but you remain; 

       they will all wear out like a garment. 

       Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded.

 But you remain the same, and your years will never end.

Psalm 102:25-27

 And space, what did King Solomon proclaim?

“…The heaven, even the highest heavens cannot contain you.”…

1 Kings 8:27

You are the Creator of all that exists and You are far more than all that You have created, 

You are without limits.

Job makes the statement:

“Can you fathom the mysteries of God?  

       Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? 

 They are higher than the heavens—what can you do?

       They are deeper than the depths of the grave —what can you know? 

 Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea.

Job 11:7-9

 How big are You, Lord God?

Isaiah asked questions about You Lord in an effort to describe You.

He asked,

…“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?” 

Isaiah 40:12

How does the Apostle Paul attempt to express the extravagant dimensions of our Infinite God?

It’s in Ephesians: 

And I pray that you,

being rooted and established in love,

may have power, together with all the saints,

to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,

Ephesians 3:17-18 

The vastness of all that our God is cannot be captured with mere words.

It is only through revelation that our wonderful Infinite God

gives us just a glimpse of who He is and how big He is.

He is so majestic!

So wonderful!

This God we bow our knee to,

the Infinite Creator of the universe has no boundaries or restrictions concerning time or space.

My God is without limits, and inexhaustible!

My God is, my Infinite God.
