Uncontainable God

God’s existence is not exhausted by the existence of the world; eternity does not fully empty itself in time; infinite is not identical with the sum total of finite beings; omniscience does not coincide with the intellectual content embodied in creatures. So also, God’s omnipotence infinitely transcends even the boundless power manifested in the world.

Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics, V. II: God & Creation, 249
