1, 2, 3, Infinity

2 Peter 3:8 – But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

Our God is awesome. Consider for a moment the wonder of our God's infinite all-knowing and all-seeing power.

As a youth I remember a lesson in Youth Club which illustrated our relative understanding of things divine. It focused around an African tribe whose mathematics included only the numbers 1, 2 and 3. Everything else was "many". Their ability to understand the concept of a thousand was compared to our inability to comprehend the extent of God's power. After three came infinity, but where does it come for us? When we think we are close to the limits of our understanding, there is an infinite distance to where God's even starts (and it never ends).

Prayer: Oh Lord our God, with your power and wisdom, guide us this and ever day, for you know we seek to do your will. Amen.
