Why We Worship 4


I am taking time each week to ask myself "Why we worship".

One of the things about God that we may find hard to understand is that God cannot be measured or defined.

Our minds are so finite that we can not really understand that there can possibly be something that is infinite.

Except if you are a Maths teacher as I was and then you have often had to talk about positive and negative numbers both going on to infinity.
 ( I love the symbol used for infinity  ∞ )


infinite adjective
  1. limitless or endless in space, extent, or size; impossible to measure or calculate


Isn't that marvellous to think about?   


God has no limits!


So God has no start or finish.

                                                 

                                                              

  Do you ever ask God to help you appreciate how different He is to us?

  1. Dear Sandra,
    God's infinite nature--so much higher and bigger than us. It is good to have some time of quiet reflection as we enter into worship. I'm visiting from Unite.
    Blessings

  5. So true, Sandra... One of my favorite quotes is "You can't put God in a box." How true! He is much to big to comprehend-- which is a very good thing for us :-) Blessings to you, sister!

  6. Yes, infinity is so hard to comprehend! To think of God as having no limits, while true, is so hard to imagine!

  8. Hi Sandra,

    Thank you for your post. I didn't know that was the symbol for infinite :) I love how God is so great, we cannot define Him. Where we are limited to what we can do, we can lean into the One who has no limits :) Makes me smile.

  9. I worship momentarily every day, b/c HE is the only One in the Universe, World, Heaven, etc., that can be healed, restored, and raised through and by Him. The other stuff can come and go, but HE will not and I can simply turn to Him and raise the worship.
