Read Job 26
Focus on verse 14
How do you describe something that defies description? To what does one compare someone who has no equal? The topic of this discussion between Job and his friends is the attributes and nature of God…a topic of which no member of the discussion has complete knowledge. Yet all of them speak as if they are an authoritative voice on the subject. It is at this point in the discussion that Job begins to bring attention to the reality that God is beyond description, beyond awesome in His power…beyond amazing in His wisdom and creativity, and when the total sum of all the knowledge Job and his friends is pooled together they are only beginning to scratch the surface of the magnitude His attributes.
When we honestly catch a glimpse of how much we do not yet know about God and compare it to what we do know it begins to help us understand why it will take eternity for us to discover all there is to know about Him.
