Jeremiah 51:15-16 ” He made the earth by His power; He founded the world by His wisdom and stretched out the heavens by His understanding. When He thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from His storehouses.”

If you have the chance today to read Psalm 104 you’ll see the same type of attempt to put into words the height, breadth, and magnitude of God’s power.  The writer of Psalm 104 uses the imagery of God wrapping Himself in light as with a garment and stretching out the heavens like a tent…also making the clouds His chariot and riding on the wings of the wind.  Both Scriptures try to put into words what can’t be explained by words…for we don’t have the means to illustrate exactly who God is and His infinite power, wisdom, and might.  So all we can do is praise Him!  Or as Psalm 104 says, “I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to My God as long as I live.”

Acts 7:48 ” However the Most High does not live in houses made by man.”

Just as God cannot be contained (I Kings 8:27)… that even the highest heavens cannot hold Him (II Chronicles 2:6) so the Church is not limited by the building or four walls that surround it.  For right now the Church is made up of people that can’t meet together…but the Church still exists and can still make an impact for the Lord.  That’s because the Body of Christ, the Church, can still pray and reach out to others with the love of our Lord.  For just as the tomb couldn’t hold Jesus…the Church cannot be contained either.
