Far Beyond

Higher than my ways.

Higher than my thoughts.

God tells us in Isaiah 55 that his thoughts are nothing like our thoughts.  This has been an extremely important concept for me to grab ahold of and wrestle with in my Journey towards the Truth.

I cannot use my perspective to grow my understanding of God.  I have had to realize that how God thinks and feels and processes is ‘far beyond anything’ I can imagine.

Yes, I am made in God’s image.  You are also made in his image.  So I see aspects of God when I look at myself and I see different aspects of God when I look at you.

But you and I have a 3 1/2 pound brain – and most of that we don’t use.

God has infinite wisdom.

God is perfect.

God knows everything.

He has the power to do anything.

He created everything – from nothing.

Just looking up into the sky gives me a better idea of how huge and endless God is.  So it makes a ton of sense to me that his thoughts and his ways are beyond anything my brain can dream up.

The miracle is that this doesn’t mean I can’t know God.  God reveals himself to me daily in his Word and in his movement here on earth.  His Spirit lives within me and draws my attention to what God is doing and what he is saying to me.  God’s Spirit shines his light on the path God has prepared for me.

God wants me to know him.  He wants me to have a personal relationship with him.

I have been wonderfully and lovingly created by God in his image –

I am like him,

but He is not like me.

Thank you for being beyond anything I can imagine, Abba Father.
