The LORD God is infinitely beyond us

Many believers assume the LORD God thinks and acts like them. But he is infinitely beyond us.

 


 

Many believers unwittingly assume the LORD God thinks and acts like them. They project their own worldview onto God.

But the thoughts of the holiest and most intelligent person arenʼt even remotely like those of the LORD God. He is infinitely beyond us.

 


 

2 Chronicles 19:6. and said to the judges, “Consider what you do, for you don’t judge for man, but for the LORD; and he is with you in the judgment.

Psalm 71:15. My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day, though I don’t know its full measure.

Psalm 123:1. To you I do lift up my eyes, you who sit in the heavens.

Isaiah 55:8. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways,” says the LORD.

Isaiah 55:9. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 64:4. For from of old men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides you, who works for him who waits for him.

1 Corinthians 2:9. That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” (NLT translation)
