The Greatness of God


The Greatness of God

God's majesty is unfathomable.

A human being's intellectual capacity cannot fathom the immeasurable greatness of God, and any attempt to characterize His greatness is a fruitless endeavor.


But even if He has been defined as "omnipotent," "omnipresent," "the highest and most awesome entity known or unknown to man," and perhaps any other phrase or expression that could possibly portray His greatness, does it all fall short?


Anyone able to fathom the One who knows the nucleus of every atom on the planet, the number of grains of sand on the surface of the planet, the One who knows all of the stars and can call them by their proper names?


Are there any words that can adequately express how great God's might was when He spoke and everything began to happen: the cosmos began to form, the suns began to revolve around their planets, plant and animal life arose, and humankind was born?


How is it possible to quantify and describe the One who knew every human being before the planet was created; the One who sees every sparrow that falls, knows every thought you have, and knows the number of hairs on your head?

Who anybody comprehend the concept of eternity? What existed prior to the birth of time and space? He certainly was. "I am the Alpha and the Omega," declares the Lord God, "who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty," referring to the beginning and end of time (Rev 1:8).


And yet, there aren't enough words to describe how wonderful, indescribable, and incomparable he is.


If God had not revealed Himself, it is possible that man would have been completely unaware of His presence, because man would not have been able to recognize God absent God's self-disclosure.


Despite the fact that it is hard to comprehend God's majesty, we can get to know Him better because He exposes Himself to us via His Word.


The term "Love," as well as "God is love," is the word that best describes our "Great and Mighty God," according to the entire Bible. (See 1 John 4:8)

"There is no greater love than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends," says Shakespeare (John 15:13).


God sent His only Son, "Jesus," to die in our place so that we can live. Those who believe in Him as Lord and Savior receive His Spirit, which helps to restore the oneness of God and man that had been shattered by Adam and Eve's transgressions and brings them back into harmony with one another.


Because of God's Plan of Salvation, it is possible for those who will embrace Him as their Savior to spend forever with Him in His presence (John 3:16). Isn't it enough to make you want to scream?


"... What deity is mighty as our God?" we can ask, echoing the psalmist, even though it is impossible to articulate the immeasurable greatness of God. (See Psalm 77:13.)
