On the wall above my kitchen desk and laptop, hangs an invitation to the third annual Inspirational Museum’s Opening Night. The elementary school program is aptly titled, “Infinite Possibilities.”
At the grade school ages of five to 12 there are certainly infinite possibilities. Everything in the world is open to kids for exploration. In this particular program the emphasis is on science, technology, art, music and performance. At these young ages, even more possibilities engage their interest every day –mathematics, languages, sports, friendships, family life, travel and much more.
What happens when we grow up? Some adults do retain that childlike ability to believe in infinite possibilities. More of us get weary with adult concerns, busy with so many tasks in so many directions. Try thinking about infinity when you’re feeling worn down and it’s very humbling. Infinite as a description for God is hard to take in too….His wisdom and power are beyond our comprehension.
It’s exactly when I’m feeling wiped out, bereft of strategies, or just plain discouraged that I need to look to Him. Forget all our college degrees, our plaques of distinction, our pedigrees, our successes. It’s nothing compared to a drop of the power of the infinite. As Psalm 147:5 tells us, “Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.”
All the more reason I’ll lean on Him regularly. My understanding alone, without the help of the infinite God, is certainly at the pre-K level.
Blessings and kind regards to you all.
