Psalm 147:5

Psalm 147:5

“His understanding is infinite.”

There is no fathoming His wisdom, or measuring His knowledge. He is infinite in existence (infinite omniscience), in power (infinite omnipotence), and in knowledge, as these three phrases plainly teach us. The gods of the heathen are nothing, but our God filleth all things. And yet how condescending! For this is He who so tenderly nurses the sick souls, and waits to be gracious to sinful men. He brings His boundless power and infinite understanding to bear upon human distress for its assuagement and sanctification. For all these reasons let His praise be great: even could it be infinite, it would not exceed his due. In the building of his church and the salvation of souls, His greatness, power, and wisdom are all displayed: let Him be extolled because of each of these attributes.
