PSALM 140-145

Focus Verse: Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised,
And His greatness is unsearchable.
Psalm 145:3

 

This is my favorite characteristic of God: no matter how well you think you know Him, you don’t. Walking with God is so unlike anything I’ve ever done before. Most of the time, in life, we can look back at our younger years and see how much we really didn’t know, even though we thought we knew it all. It’s very similar with God. The only difference is, there is never a point where you feel like you have Him figured out.

 

The deeper I get with God, the further I realize how far I have yet to go. The NASB translation uses the word unsearchable for God’s greatness here. The NIV says, “His greatness no one can fathom”. The Hebrew word is the noun form of chaqar, the verb to search. Coupled with the negative, we come to the conclusion that the greatness of our God cannot even begin to be searched. He’s unsearchable.

 

The only chance we have of understanding the smallest glimpse of our God is by divine revelation. He has to open our eyes to see more of Him. One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from A.W. Tozer, “Eternity will not be long enough to learn all He is, or to praise Him for all he has done, but then, that matters not; for we shall be always with Him, and we desire nothing more.”

 

For the rest of eternity we get to spend our days learning about the greatness of our God and praising Him for all He has done. I think we will look back and get to peek in on all of the ways He moved in our lives that we never even saw. He will connect the dots on events that happened thousands of years before we were even born that led to defining moments in our lives.

 

And the best part, even with an eternity to spend doing it, we still won’t be able to reach the end of who He is. We still won’t be able to praise Him for all that He has done. But I’m sure going to have fun trying!
