Beyond Our Understanding

‘Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.’ As a child these words excited me. How amazing was superman! What incredible things he could do!

But superman was just a figure of fiction. God is real and the more we learn about Him the more awestruck we are with just how amazing and incredible He is, ridiculously far beyond any comic book hero. And how unbelievable and exciting that this amazing God wants to have a personal and loving relationship with each of us. Rom 3:25-26, 1 Cor 10:12-13, Luke 15:11-32, Eph 3:17-19, Psalm 107:1, 2 Cor 5:21, Heb 4:13, Psalm 139:7-12, Matt 10:29-30, Psalm 117, 1 John 1:8-9, Isaiah 54:10, Matt 19:26, Psalm 139:1-6,  Heb 1:10-12.



God, our God, is an amazing God

Incredible, more than we can ever imagine.

Everything He needs to be in every way

God, our God, beyond our understanding.


God is just. He expects the best

Throughout our lives we’re put to the test.

But God is love, through and through

He loves and forgives us no matter what we do.

God is good, as perfect as can be

He’s never ever sinned, an impossibility.

But on the cross He took on all our sin

So we could live forever with Him.




Universal, He’s everywhere

Where-ever you are He’s always there.

He is Faithful, He’ll never let you down.

He’s by your side, He’s always around.

He’s all-powerful, as strong as strong can be.

He’s all-knowing, there’s nothing he can’t see.

He’s unchanging, he’ll always stay the same.

He’s eternal, forever is His name.
