Transcendence and immanence

“Do you people think that I am some local deity and not the transcendent God?” the Lord asks (Jeremiah 23:23; NET).

We can’t even imagine the greatness of his power (Job 37:5; NLT).

How great is God – beyond our understanding! (Job 36:26; NIV).

There is […] one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).


You are transcendent –

Beyond description,
Beyond our many names for you,
Beyond imagination,
And beyond our understanding.

Yet you are also immanent –

Over all,
Within all,
Pervading all,
And living through all.
