A Little Time With The 1689: Day 30


Day 30

Of God and of the Holy Trinity

Chapter 2, Paragraph 1.

“…incomprehensible, almighty…”

Scripture Lookup

Genesis 17:1.


God is incomprehensible. We can’t fully understand Him. So there is no point in learning about Him, we should close up shop and head home. Right?

If you’re still reading this blog, you know the answer is no.

How do we learn about God in the first place? If we think back to Chapter 1 of the Confession, we have our answer. God reveals himself to us through His word. It is He that opens our eyes to the glorious truths about himself.The Holy Spirit works to guide us into all truth (John 16:13), and that includes learning about Himself.

While we are finite and cannot grasp fully all that an infinite God is, we know that He is able to do all His holy will. He is almighty, with no limitations to His power! “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?”(Jeremiah 23:27)

So do not fear to dive into studying God, because you will never reach the bottom of the well of knowledge concerning Him. Do not fear that you cannot understand Him; He is incomprehensible, but He will enlighten you concerning Him. Do not think that you are not intelligent enough to learn about Him, for He is the Almighty, and what He has said, He is able to do and will do.

Question to Consider

  • Have you ever thanked God for revealing Himself to you?
