Enjoying a birthday party for a dear 12 year old. Glad that I can be in her life. Glad that I am in her mother's life. Praying that the world around her will become so filled with people that find their passion is to learn who God is. To seek His face. To search the Bible to find out who He is. Not depending on their human abailities to determine who He is. DECIDING for themselves what God looks like, or even what He says in their own imaginations and in their own heads. But recognizing that God gave us the Word to investigate, read, cry over, be encouraged by, and seek help from. It is His Words spoken to us. His love letters. His life poured out before us.
If we determine what/who God is with our own heads - we make him into something he is not. We make him into what we determine him to be. And God said: "I am He, before Me there was no God formed, and there will be none after Me. I even I, am the LORD; and there is no Savior besides Me." ... "And I am God. Even from eternity I am He; there is none who can deliver out of my hand; I ac t and who can reverse it?" Is 43
Such a basic truth that so many people where I used to live understand. But oh so few people here do.
