23 Touching the Almighty [Shadday], we cannot find him out [matsa']: he is excellent [saggiy']
in power [koach], and in judgment [mishpat], and in plenty [rob] of
justice [tsadaqah]: he will not afflict [`anah]. KJV-Interlinear
23 'The Almighty we cannot find
Him; He is exalted in power; And He will not do violence to justice and
abundant righteousness. NASB
God is the almighty.
He is infinite in all of his attributes.
He is so far beyond us, that no created being can come near Him in
ability, knowledge, or wisdom.
And certainly no created being can match God in His
perfect dealings with all living things.
Gods point of contact with man is through His perfect
righteousness, and His perfect justice.
Gods righteousness means He is sinless
perfection. Justice in the action of
cleansing or washing thoroughly, anything that is tainted, flawed and
imperfect. Gods justice means that He maintains
perfect function in His relationship with anything that is less than perfect.
Righteousness plus justice equals holiness. Holiness plus love equals grace. Love is the content of Bible doctrine.
Imperfect man meets God initially at the Cross through
Gods righteousness and justice. Christ is the reality of the Cross, and Christ
is mans only point of contact with God.
Christ is the living word and the written word of God.
God does not abuse His power, His righteousness, or
His justice. God deals with all of
creation with the same consistency of His perfection. God is immutable. He is the same today as He was in Job's day.
Your relationship with God is the same that Elihu or
Through faith in Christ, Gods righteousness and
justice (the cross), cleanses us and rebirths us into a new life. Through doctrine, following salvation, Gods
love (scriptures), carries us into a new and higher realm of greater grace
called spiritual maturity.
Apart from this (faith and doctrine), man cannot find
God, discover God, or even invent a new god.
And, apart from God, man will never find anyone or
anything that is as fair and consistent in dealing with the many aspects of life.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
