God's Limitlessness


In these brief few paragraphs, you will read my thoughts on the powerful word we received Sunday by our family pastor, Michael Shmidt. Have you ever wondered how tall God is? As a child, I always imagined giants playing golf with the radomes in the fields. What is a radome? According to Radome Services,


"A radome is a structural, weatherproof enclosure that protects a radar system or antenna and is constructed or material that minimally attenuates the electromagnetic single transmitted or received by the antenna. Radomes protect antenna surfaces from weather and/or conceal antenna electronic equipment from public view."

We are limited by our own humanity. This does not mean that we cannot comprehend but rather instead that we are incapable through our own abilities.

Our understanding only comes through our willingness to submit to the Lord. As we yield to Him, the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to see the wonders of His majesty. These statements can sometimes be confusing. Phrases like “Wonders of His majesty” or yielding to the Holy Spirit can seem like pious hyperbole but we must not avoid such things in our quest for truth. The apostle John wrote that, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come (John 16:13 ESV).”
