God of contrasts — not contradictions

God is both infinite and intimate

He is both distant, dwelling in unapproachable light and near, never leaving nor forsaking me

He both surrounds me (in Whom we live and move and have our being) and is in me (He that is in you is greater than  he that is in the world)

He is the God of all and the God of each one

He is the God of wrath and the God of mercy

He is both my judge and my advocate

He is the God of justice and the God of grace

He imposes my penalty and He pays my price

He is the God of the ages and the God of right now

He is the shepherd and He is the Sacrificial Lamb

He is Sovereign and He allows me free will to choose

His voice is both booming thunder and a whisper to my heart

He is the Creator of my temporary earthly body and the Creator of my eternal soul

He is the Alpha and He is the Omega

He is the First and He is the Last

He is the beginning and He is the end   (Rev. 22:13)

I will spend my life learning to love this incomparable, incomprehensible, indescribable, infinite Creator God,  and never come to the end of Him, nor know Him fully, because He is infinite and eternal.  I can think of no greater adventure than this.

sincerely,      Grace Day
