Beyond our Imagination

How great is our God

The recent ground breaking discovery of the Higgs-Boson particle is certainly getting everyone in the scientific community excited and justifiably so. As scientists search our universe all the more eagerly to understand how things work, it only adds to our sense of wonder at how great our God is, who has made all things according to his divine purpose and for his supreme glory. Think also of the goodness of God that he has created a universe so vast and complex that it will keep us all occupied with its mysteries for ever, with each fresh discovery unveiling even greater wonders and giving us even greater insight into the sheer wisdom of the creator who has made it thus.

Solomon prayed at the opening of the Temple these profound words, ‘“But will God indeed dwell with men on the earth? Behold heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain You. How much less this temple which I have built!” 2 Chronicles 6:18. The mind blowing thought for me in that prayer is that Solomon inspired by the Holy Spirit prays about how incapable heaven’s heaven is to contain God. So if there is a heaven beyond our imagination to which we aspire to go one day. The residents of that place, presumably the angels also are aware of a plane of existence that is beyond their imagination and which they refer to as the ‘Heaven of Heaven’s’. Yet Solomon declares that even that plane of existence cannot contain the immensity that is God.

There are many profound reasons for being grateful that God has revealed himself to us in Christ, but one of them must be the thought that one day our loving heavenly Father will open up to us a greater understanding of the universe/s that exist beyond the realm of our dreams and understanding. How awesome is the Lord our God! Will heaven supply us with even greater wonders and mysteries to furnish our praise... I wouldn’t be surprised!
