God is infinite.

 

We often think of His infinity as big; very, very big.  But God is bigger than that.

We also think of God’s infinity in terms of huge – as large as the ocean.  But God is bigger than that.

God is totally infinite.  That means He has absolutely no end – never, ever; He’s bigger than bigger than big.  He’s infinite; without end.

So when the world was made, it was created by someone with a totally infinite mind – totally beyond beginning and beyond end.

In the natural world, we see God’s infinity – the variations of color, of style, of pattern.  Have you ever seen two identical waterfalls in a stream?  How about identical leaf vein patterns, or the same markings on two animals of the same kind?  Two mountain peaks that look so similar they can’t be told apart?

As much as it’s just a cool reality, it’s also a reminder – no two things in creation are exactly alike because that’s how infinite God is, and the infiniteness of His love towards us and toward the things that He created out of nothing.
