But will God indeed dwell upon the earth? Even heaven, the highest heaven, cannot contain You, much less this temple I have built. – 1 Kings 8:27
What can contain God?
He made the universe, so that certainly doesn’t contain Him! The structure and complexity and vastness of all that we see and perceive is a result of God’s imagination and power. Why then do we fancy that we can understand Him, comprehend His thoughts, or know the depths of His power? Thankfully, we don’t have to figure out any of this out on our own. It would be impossible.
God’s greatness also includes His great love for us. He has shown Himself to us. He has come to us, forgiven us, taught us how to live, and promised us an eternal life with Him. He has made us His children.
Look at the sky, the stars, the immenseness. God made it all. But His love for us is even bigger. Nothing can measure it, and nothing can contain it!
