Knowing the God We Servedwbuyu.com - January 29, 2021
There are a great deal of motion pictures out nowadays, yet let’s face it. The greater part of them are quite forgettable. There are a couple, in any case, that grab our eye since they have such surprising turns. I’m pondering the 1982 film featuring Robert Redford named “Shoes.” Or, for a somewhat more youthful group there is the 1999 film featuring Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment named “The Sixth Sense.” Remember how shocked we were the point at which we abruptly understood that the therapist Oops! I would prefer not to part with it for anybody that hasn’t seen it yet. Yet, you get what I mean. We recollect these films since they overwhelmed us. They were eccentric but then fulfilling.
All things considered, prepare to be blown away. God is that way. It is difficult to nail Him down, to completely fathom Him or even think about the thing He will do straightaway. Positively there are a few things we think about Him since He’s uncovered them to us. For instance, God has uncovered that He is limitless and unceasing; He is lenient and cherishing; He is generous and persistent. I could list a hundred unique Scriptures to show my point Land of Israel. Be that as it may, you get the thought. God has revealed to us numerous things about Himself, and we get them.
However, there are things about God that we can’t get a handle on regardless of how enthusiastically we attempt. So we need to add to the rundown better than modifiers as uncertain, unusual, unbelievable, unintelligible, illogical, baffling, and confounding. Attempt as we would to enclose Him, He won’t be categorized. God is consistently about doing His own will and acquiring His own wonder. The issue is that we limited animals don’t generally have the foggiest idea what that will is. So we can’t anticipate what He will do straightaway. For instance, take His coming to earth in human structure (Jn. 1:14). Nobody might have anticipated that! What’s more, who might make something to that effect up? It’s excessively unforeseen, excessively astonishing. It sounds insane, then again, actually there is sufficient proof to realize that it really occurred.
Presently, on the off chance that you heard or read the message on how “The Time is Now,” to begin serving God with your entire existence, and you have chosen to do it, at that point the time has come to become more acquainted with this apparently unfathomable God. Yet, the primary thing you should know is that God is definitely not a superb Sugar Daddy. He isn’t a divine helper, standing by to concede all your desires. Numerous individuals imagine that God is there to satisfy all their impulses. They are immediately baffled. God loves us incomprehensible, and His objective is to shape us into His picture. His objective isn’t to make us rich and glad in this life, however to set us up to reign with Him in magnificence in the following life. It implies we probably won’t get all that we wish or request here on earth. In any case, in paradise it will be heavenly!
Nor, then again, is God a vast cop, holding on to spiritual growth get serious about all our infractions. Numerous individuals see God along these lines, and can’t move beyond it. Blame principles their lives, and this ought not be. Feeling remorseful enough won’t procure pardoning from God. All wrongdoings were at that point pardoned 2,000 years prior on the Cross of Calvary. We need to simply inquire. On the off chance that we jumble up we ought to be grieved, request absolution and proceed onward. This is the thing that God needs us to do.
So what is God, at that point, in any case? That is the thing that God needs us to find! God came to earth as a man, Jesus, and He indicated us what God resembles. He is much the same as Jesus: cherishing, mindful, agile, merciful, excusing. However He is likewise heavenly and awesome. He needs a relationship with us, however He likewise never needs us to fail to remember what His identity is.
All in all, is it conceivable to get in any event a little lucidity on His character and points? Obviously. We do that by looking at what has been uncovered about Him in Scripture. What’s more, there is one Scripture that brings everything together really well. Isaiah 46:9-11 says:
“Recall the previous things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is nobody like Me, announcing the end from the earliest starting point, and from antiquated occasions things which have not been done, saying, ‘My motivation will be set up, and I will achieve all My great joy’; calling a fledgling of prey from the east, the man of My motivation from a far country. Genuinely I have spoken; really I will carry it to pass. I have arranged it, without a doubt I will do it.”
We should recall, above all else that He is God and we are definitely not. He isn’t here to serve us. Or maybe, we are here to serve Him. Be that as it may, He doesn’t deal with us like slaves. We are so fortunate to be a piece of “His great joy.” We should simply believe that He adores us and will work in us and through us for both our best and for His wonder. It is essential to remember the entirety of this as we look further into His character.
Something else we find from the absolute first words in the Bible is that He is innovative. Beginning 1:1 advises us, “first and foremost, God made the sky and the earth.” He didn’t need to make anything. Be that as it may, He needed to. Why? We may never completely know, then again, actually it celebrated Him to do it. So He did it.
