Lose yourself in the impenetrable tracts of His Glory!
(John MacDuff, "The Night Watches")
"Before the mountains were born or You brought forth the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God!" Psalm 90:2
O my soul! Seek to fill yourself with thoughts of the Almighty. Lose yourself in the impenetrable tracts of His Glory!
"Can you by searching find out God?"
Can the insect fathom the ocean?
Can the worm scale the skies?
Can the finite comprehend the Infinite?
Can the mortal grasp Immortality?
We can do no more than stand on the brink of the shoreless sea, and cry, "Oh the depth!"
"From everlasting to everlasting, You are God!"
Shrouded in the great and amazing mystery of eternity,
before one star revolved in its sphere,
before one angel moved his wing — God was!
His own infinite presence filling all space. All time, to Him, is but as the heaving of a breath — the beat of a pulse — the twinkling of an eye! He was as infinitely glorious when He inhabited the solitudes of immensity alone — as He is now with the songs of angel and archangel sounding in His ear!
This is the Being to whom I can look up with sweetest confidence, and call "My Father!"
This is the Infinite One, whom "the Heaven of Heavens cannot contain," whom I call "My God!"
"This God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even until death!" Psalm 48:14
