God Is More!
How do you imagine God? No matter how much energy we put into imagining, studying, and defining God, we will always fall short. God is more than we can imagine. God is always MORE!
Just as you don’t understand what the life-breath does in the fetus inside a pregnant woman’s womb, so you can’t understand the work of God, who makes everything happen. (Ecclesiastes 11:5, CEB)
God is indeed more than we can imagine. God is more than we can ever understand. It seems that the more I learn about God and the more I get to know him, the more awesome and mysterious God becomes. We really can’t ever figure him out. God is always MORE!
But this does not mean we should not try to know God deeper, better, more intimately. Instead it leaves us in reverent awe. God is God and we are not. God is holy, mysterious, and sovereign. God is always MORE!
God’s riches, wisdom, and knowledge are so deep! They are as mysterious as his judgments, and they are as hard to track as his paths!
Who has known the Lord’s mind?
Or who has been his mentor?
Or who has given him a gift
and has been paid back by him?
All things are from him and through him and for him.
May the glory be to him forever. Amen.
(Romans 11: 33-36, CEB)
What does this mean to us? It means that our God is glorious and worthy of praise. It means He truly deserves our praise now and forever. God is always MORE!
And that is a huge blessing. We don’t have to be everything to everybody. We can just be who we are. We are God’s children. And we are called to live joyfully, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly, and trust steadily in God. Because God is more than we can imagine. God is more than we ever need. God is always MORE!
Thank you for being MORE than we can imagine!
Thank you for being mysterious, glorious, and holy!
We praise you forever and ever!
Thank you for loving us and taking care of us.
Thank you for calling us to live in your grace.
We praise you forever and ever!
In Jesus’ name,
