In our own limited human understanding, we often find ourselves putting God in a box and limiting Him, but the Word of God tells us that we serve a God who is unlimited in power, capacity, knowledge, being, compassion, grace and holiness.
It's been said that trying to understand the fullness of God is like trying to put the whole pacific ocean into a glass of water. It can never happen and it will never be possible. We will never truly understand God fully. How is He three Persons at once? How is He without beginning and end? How could He have created the world in just a few days?
We try to understand God, but there just comes a point where we leave the books on the table, put our hands up in worship and say, "Lord, how majestically unlimited you are." Yes, it is indeed hard to imagine and basically impossible to truly fathom God's whole being and person. Yet we can trust that God is indeed limitless both in power and in His love for us. When we really get a hold of that, we will realise how much we should never be afraid of anything in our lives.
Here are nine scriptures that will help you to stop putting God in a box and remember just how mighty and great He is.
