Behold, God is great, and we know him not

In Job 36:26, Elihu says of God-

Behold, God is great, and we know him not;
the number of his years is unsearchable.

3 points-

  1. Behold!  We need to look, to SEE God, as He is revealed in His Word, the Bible, and through Jesus, God Incarnate, Emmanuel, God With Us! Lord, give us eyes to see and a heart that comprehends. John Piper said, “The words of Jesus are the window through which we see the Light of Jesus. And through which we climb by faith.”
  2. God is indeed great!  In our search to KNOW God, it is good to remember that we will never fully know and understand Him.  That doesn’t mean that we give up and don’t try to know Him, but our finite minds will never have the capacity to completely know our infinite God.
  3. God is eternal! We don’t box God into time.
