“Holy, holy, holy Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV)
I love the ‘is’-ness of God. That means He’s present. Right now. And, He’s with everyone at the same time “Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there” (Psalm 139:7-8 NKJV).
The Lord ‘is’ my shepherd. This hour. The Lord ‘is’ my Light and my Salvation. This minute. The Lord ‘is’ my strong refuge and help in time of trouble. This second.
God ‘is’ Love. Can’t improve that.
A poem, written in the eleventh century by Jewish Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai, is now a well-beloved hymn named “The Love of God”.
Nehorai tried to capture a vast entity to compare with Jehovah. Perhaps John’s Gospel helped, “And there are many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen” (John 21:25 NKJV).
Only God holds vast space, dust, time, galaxies [yet to be discovered], planets and worlds in the palm of His hand. Limitless wonders are beyond comprehension, that eyes haven’t seen nor entered into the hearts of man (1 Corinthians 2:9).
We can’t exhaust Christ’s infinite love, compassion, mercy and grace --at least, not on this side of Glory, because He is.
“The Love of God is greater far, than tongue or pen can ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell
To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole tho stretched from sky to sky
God’s love so sure shall still endure, all measureless and strong,
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race, the saints and angel’s song”
Jewish poem written in Aramaic by Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai, 1050 AD.
