Stop and think for a moment; no really think about this.
Who IS God? I mean who is He really?
At some point in our lives, we have asked the question: “Where did God come from?” Or: “If He created us, who created Him?” Real quick response to that. God cannot be called Creator if He was created by something or someone else. That something would be the creator. So God IS…period. He has no beginning and no ending. He always was and will be.
“Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.” Psalms 90:2 NKJV
We try to take the minimal knowledge that we have (which by the way He shares with us) to dissect and make God to be as we are. It’s almost as if we believe that in order for God to exist, He had to have experienced the process of creation as we have. So then we are really attempting to place Him in a category. That’s almost like asking the question what does air look like or what does the color red taste like? Red does not belong in the five-senses category of taste but of sight. Wind cannot be seen unless it is mixed with another substance (like debris and dust from a wind storm or tornadoes) however it can be felt. Whelp…that means that God is uncreated…He simply exists (glory to your name- I just got excited).
Once there was the formal introduction (in the beginning…God) next, our Father, begins just creating stuff all over the place:
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 NKJV
God made man in his image and likeness, with the highest quality and value. Likeness is defined as the quality or state of being alike; especially in appearance. Quality is defined as a high level of value or excellence.
So then our Father, the ultimate graphic designer, created man to look like Him, with a high value of excellence and then placed His precious spirit within us. He wanted (then and now) for you to be the best. He still desires for you to be the best and do your best.
We know God as the reason behind the existence of EVERYTHING, with all wisdom and knowledge, right? Our Father placed so much value on our lives that He gave Jesus to be a sacrifice for our lives.
When will we acknowledge God’s value which is invaluable or priceless?
We give so much reverence to people of social “status,” seeking out the next big thing to follow, but we don’t hold our Father to even the smallest regard. Because if we did, we would follow Him.
Today, think about God and who He REALLY is. More importantly, who He is to you.
“Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?” And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ”Exodus 3:13-14 NKJV
