Being infinite and immense means that God is immeasurable and uncontainable.
- Can you discover the depths of God? Can you discover the limits of the Almighty? - Job 11:7
- But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain You, how much less this house which I have built! - 1 Kings 8:27
A. H. Strong states, “Immensity is infinity in its relation to space. God’s nature is not subject to the law of space.”(2) Thus, every attribute of God is limitless.
- Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable. - Psalm 145:3
- Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite. - Psalm 147:5
God’s infiniteness makes Him capable of loving each believer equally as if that individual was the only believer.
