There’s a story unfolding before our eyes as we open the pages of Scripture. God Divine designs a plan to reveal Himself to man. The God who always was and who always will be. Creator God. Almighty. Yes, indeed…it is He.
Most certainly, God is different than us. An infinite God we serve. He has no boundaries or limits. He is endless, vast, and immeasurable…not bound by mortal means.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:1-2
It is important for us to understand that our God is bigger than us. He is bigger than our problems, our pain, our suffering, and our doubts. There is nothing that is too difficult for God (Luke 18:27). No burden too big for Him to bear. Rather than run away from Him…run towards His arms of grace.
God dwells in a mode of being totally beyond us and wholly above us and infinitely removed from us yet when we think about God we are trying to think about someone unlike anything we know. God says, who am I like? or to whom will you compare me? The answer being, nobody; nobody’s like God, nothing’s like God. God is like Himself.
We dwell in matter and space and time and we are creatures. God is not material; he doesn’t dwell in matter. And he isn’t spacial; He doesn’t dwell in space. And he isn’t temporal; he doesn’t dwell in time. And he isn’t a creature; God is a Creator, not a creature. God was before any creature was and as I have said before, nothing adds anything to God and nothing can take anything away from him. — A.W. Tozer
God is greater than creation itself and lives independently from it. In other words, it was God’s choice to create man and make Himself known to us. Had He not revealed Himself to us, we would never know or understand what He is like. But because of His great love for us, He has revealed Himself to mankind.
We see God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost as we behold creation. We recognize Him in our conscience. We read about Him in the Bible. And God continues to reveal Himself to us as we abide in Him.
Abiding means to stick close. To listen to His Word. John 15:4 says, “Remain in me, and I will remain in you.” As we begin the Advent season…remember your story is part of something bigger. God’s story is being revealed through your life. Let’s get to know the STORY MAKER!
Do you believe God is big enough to handle your current day struggle?
