No Boundaries

"Your own eyes shall see this, and you shall say,
'Great is the LORD beyond the border of Israel!'"
-Malachi 1:5

Isn't this an encouragement? Great He is... beyond the borders we set for Him! Our Lord cannot be put in a box, His actions can not be predicted, His thoughts not comprehended.
This is why our hearts cry out to know Him more - because He cannot be fathomed. We can constantly come to know more of Him, yet never completely know Him.

So often we thank Him for not answering our prayers according to our original desires, because He came up with an answer that was beyond our imagination! Our minds have borders, our God does not.

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
-Ephesians 3:20-21

Hi, Jen.

We just had that verse from Ephesians in Bible study. In fact all of chapter 3 was great!
