The Unsearchable

Published at 02:27PM. Written by Kelli Dion.


Today we live in a world where everything is searchable. What do you want to know? Google it. You can almost always find your answer in less than 5 minutes.

I remember before everyone had a smartphone and I mean everyone! My son is 19 months old, and he knows how to grab my wife’s phone find his game or children’s Bible app click on it and start playing! When I was 19 months, I’m pretty sure I was just eating rocks! Well… my son does that too… but I certainly didn’t know how to operate a smartphone! Everyone today, from my grandma to my toddler, can search out whatever they want to know and pretty quickly find their answer. As convenient as that is, it has ruined the fun of arguing, hasn’t it?! I remember back in 2009 before myself, or my roommates had iPhones arguing about things like how much the China debt was and whether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger was a democrat or republican or how many albums the Beatles had. We could argue about some of these topics for hours! Today we just google it or ask Siri and 10 seconds later have an answer.

So is anything unsearchable anymore?

I came upon this verse today and just had to write about it, even though it has been about seven months since my last blog.

Psalm 145:1–3

I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever.

2 Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever.

3 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, * and his greatness is unsearchable.*

God’s greatness is unsearchable. What does that mean? Does it mean no one can know that he is great? No. I think we are aware of how great he is, but not fully. We just can not comprehend how great he is. Honestly, that is refreshing and only makes me want to worship all the more! For King David writing this, it was a reason to worship Him, to know that God’s greatness is unsearchable and incomprehensible should get us to vocalize how great God is!

You can read the rest of the Psalm here. My question to you, is this your view of God? Is this how you worship Him?

Psalm 145:4–21

4 One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.

5 On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.

6 They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness.

7 They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

8 The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

9 The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.

10 All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and all your saints shall bless you!

11 They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power,

12 to make known to the children of man your[b] mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. [The Lord is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.][c]

14 The Lord upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down.

15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.

16 You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing.

17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works.

18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them.

20 The Lord preserves all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.

21 My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
