We have reduced God to the imagery in our minds based on what we can physically see. We have reduced God, to being a resource and not THE source in our lives. We have reduced God, to behavioral patters that impersonate humans, when in fact it is the reverse. Our actions. Our behaviors. Our character- should mimic…Him!
He is the Creator; we are the results of His creativity.
The Master designer.
He. Is. Our. Father.
Our finite human mind places limitation on an unlimited God. It is His desire to provide protection, fullness of joy, and a fulfilled life for His children.
My earthly dad never displayed – at least not in my life, what it is to have a dad who nurtures, cares, and demonstrates unconditional love. He lives right here in the city with me. Didn’t even come to my mom’s funeral service this past June, and I am the only child of their union. I heard from his brothers and sisters, who live in other parts of the world- and nothing from him. That has been the example of a father that I have known up until I was introduced to my real Father, through Jesus Christ.
As a result, I am not bitter because of it. I am better.
Remove God from your box; don’t tie Him down. You run the risk of exalting yourself.
He is sovereign!
“First I predicted your rescue, then I saved you and proclaimed it to the world. No foreign god has ever done this. You are witnesses that I am the only God,” says the Lord. “From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done.” Isaiah 43:12-13 NLT
