Look UP!

He is omnipotent.

He is the creator of all things.

He is the only uncreated One.

He is more glorious than our eyes can envision.July 18 b 2015 look up 1

He is perfect.

In Isaiah 55, God tells us “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.”

For some people, the fact that they can’t totally understand God stops them from taking the next step into a relationship with him.  But I’m glad I can’t understand everything about God.  We only have 3.5 pound brains.  If we could understand everything about God, he wouldn’t be God.

The fact that we discuss and we wonder and we debate and we change our minds about God is reassuring to me.  Because he is bigger than anything we can imagine.

He is unfathomable.

And that makes him Holy, Holy, Holy God!

God tells us ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.’

Look up!

Where does the sky stop?

Our God is a huge, fantastic God who has chosen, for some reason, to have a personal relationship with us…

with me….

with you.

God tells us, “My word that goes out from my mouth; it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”July 18 2 2015 look up

Do you  feel it?

As we read and meditate on God’s word, the power of the Holy Spirit grows within us.  He interprets these words for us so we can better understand God.  As we come to know God better, we can hear him and follow him more closely.  As we diligently read and memorize and cherish God’s word to us, more of God’s wisdom becomes etched upon our hearts, renewing our minds and fulfilling the purpose God had went he said them.

So look up!  A huge and holy God is reaching out his hand full of love and grace and truth.

Thank you, Abba Father, for how incomprehensible you are!  We don’t need to understand everything about you because you are God, we are not.  We believe that your son, Jesus, paid the price for our sins so that, when we accept his grace, we are saved from being separated from you forever by our sin and rebellion.  Now we are in an eternal relationship with you which has already started and will continue on after we leave this earth.  We love you!  In the redeeming name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
