Beyond my Belief

Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?” (Job 11:7 NKJV)

God goes beyond our belief. He’s too much to take in; when we think we’ve got Him figured out we discover another miracle to marvel over. Our God is too good to us.  Too great to fully comprehend, “He does great things which we cannot comprehend” (Job 37:5 Amplified). Think upon these things, “can you find out the deep things of God, or can you by searching find out the limits of the Almighty [explore His depths, ascend to His heights, extend to His breadths, and comprehend His infinite perfection]?” (Job 11:7 Amplified). We know the answer is not at all, no way!

Our God is both mind-blowing and beautifully breath-taking. He’s not only worthy of our worship, He’s worthy of our wonder as well. No one can compare, no one comes close, “many, O Lord my God, are the wonderful works which You have done… no one can compare with You!” (Psalm 40:5 Amplified). And again, “who compares with you among gods, O God? Who compares with you in power, in holy majesty, in awesome praises, wonder-working God?” (Exodus 15:10 MSG).When you try and answer it you realise you can’t possibly! That’s because there’s no-one like our God, He’s in a league of His own!

Our God is the Answer in Himself. Every answer to every question is found in Him.  He’s all you’ll ever need.  If everyone was to abandon you you would still have Everything. He’s Hope to the helpless.  Eternal rest for the weary.  Healer of the broken-hearted.  And Light to the lost. He’s all encompassing; everything we ever have need of is hidden in Him. Just think about it- He meets our every need. He’s not only the Provider, He’s the Provision. “He does not exploit the poor, but instead is fair to debtors and does not rob them. He gives food to the hungry and provides clothes for the needy” (Ezekiel 18:16 NLT). He meets our every need, He is our need.


Why don’t you go grab your Bible and open it at Psalm 18 (in my opinion it‘s one of those long-forgotten passages that we need to familiarise ourselves with).  As you read through it scribble down words that describe God.  Write down all that He’s done for us.  By the end of it you’ll have quite a list!

When we’re down its then that He lifts us up. When we can’t find happiness He gives us real and lasting joy. When we’re pursuing peace but we can’t get a hold of it, He assures us of His Presence, our Peace. When we’ve lost our way somewhere along the lines He brings us back, safe and sound.  Before we’re even aware that we have a need God has already fulfilled it.  I think you’ll agree with me- our God is an awesome God!

When we desperately need comforted He fills the room with His Presence. He assures us that it will be alright because He’s by our side. His being there makes it better, “we ourselves are comforted by God” (2 Corinthians 1:4 NKJV). He’s the “God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3 NKJV), who sticks by our side, closer than a brother. When we lose faith in ourselves He whispers that He believes in us, He urges us on. When we need rescuing He’s by our side like lightning.  Before we even blink He’s already with us. “The Rescuer is strong: God-of-the-Angel-Armies. Yes, I will take their side, I’ll come to their rescue” (Jeremiah 50:33 MSG). Even better, God isn’t one for breaking His promises! He’s always the Promise-maker, never the promise-breaker.  I could go on forever, but I’ll leave it at this… even though God goes beyond our belief He’s to be trusted.

Think upon these things…

He’s worthy of our worship, and worthy of our wonder. Why don’t you take some time to worship Him? Thank Him that even though He goes beyond our belief He’s to be trusted.  Stick on some worship songs as you do this, or how about covering a wall with paper and plastering it with your thoughts and thankfulness.  Give it a go!


Thank God for who He is.  Thank Him for being your Strong Tower, Provider, Guiding Light and Rescuer.  You’ll find that focusing on His character makes your prayer-life so much easier sometimes…
