We could never contain God in a blog or a song.
Reference: v.3 As the heavens are high and the earth is deep, so the hearts of kings are unsearchable. (NIV Bible)
Explore: We can never fully understand God. Louie Giglio in his DVD Indescribable outlines how incredibly vast the creation is when you start to look in to it all. While we feel so significant and the earth seems so big we are humbled when we here how larger stars and galaxies are beyond ours. And yet God, who put all of these enormous, wonderous and mind-boggling galaxies in to place is keen to know you and me. It's hard to fully comprehend.
Application: When I first read this verse in Proverbs I thought that it must have been translated incorrectly and that the heart of the King is unsearchable. And yet then I remembered that God is the King of Kings. If a king's heart is unsearchable that gives us a small glimpse into the immensity of God's heart. We could never contain God in a blog or a song. He is more wonderous than our eye's will ever see or our mind will ever know. He is the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings. And this Almighty Creator desires to know you and me. There is nothing that compares to Him.
Prayer: Lord, You are wonderous and mighty. We are humbled that you would desire to have a relationship with us. Thank you, oh glorious Saviour and Friend. Amen.
When have you noticed the immensity of God?
