Thought of the Day !!

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn't worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.
                                                       Romans 1:20-21 (NLT)

There is so much proof out there that there is a God.  His qualities and power are seen in all creation.  But there have always been people who've tried to make Him what they wanted Him to be instead of finding out for themselves just who He really is.

It's no different today.  How many of us have our own concept of who and what God is like?  How many of us make the determination that "my" God wouldn't do that, or "the God I know" is different?  Could it be that our God cannot be put in a box and defined the way we want Him to be defined, to look like we desire Him to look? 

None of us will ever truly know the totality of the divine nature of God in this lifetime.  None of us can understand everything about Him.  That's where faith comes in.  I do believe that He makes it clear through Scripture that He wants us to get to know everything we can about Him though.  He wants us to grow closer and closer to Him daily.  He wants us to worship Him and give Him thanks for what He has made clear to us.

Let's not make God out to be what we want Him to be.  Let's seek Him to learn as much about who He really is, worshiping Him and giving Him thanks for every new detail that comes alive to us.

In the love of Christ,
