Is knowledge a security blanket for you?
Is your security in what you know?
“At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.” – Luke 10:21
Little children understand God better than you and I – why is that?
Could it be that they have the capacity to NOT stuff God in a box?
You have a “God box” as do I and while I like to think my God box is fairly large – I know it’s not large enough. So what is a God box?
A “God box” is what we are sure God is! God could not possibly work outside of the parameters of our “God box” because that just isn’t who or what God is according to us!
Well aren’t we something! We have God all figured out!! Woo Hoo everybody we know God and we are here to let you know exactly who He is!
If God is not in a huge way a mystery to you – your God box is way too small!
Consider this – why you? Why in all the earth did God Almighty suddenly decide to endow you with this special knowledge?
There are 6 words I know for sure beyond the shadow of a doubt – beyond that most everything is Faith – the six words are this “God Is Love” and “God Loves You!”
Outside of this I accept whatever else as Faith and I see things as mysteries as much as I can. Example why does God allow illness? I mean why not make everyone healthy all the time? Could it be that by someone being sick another person might care for them and in so doing shine His Love light?
I don’t know for sure but I do know that my God box is big enough to incorporate that idea.
Could it be that huge human tragedies like the Tsunami of 2005 Christmas show God is even more present with us by making us examine how we need to Love others? Could that tragedy be an invitation for the world to look at each other with more Love and compassion instead of indifference and callousness?
I don’t know but my God box is big enough to incorporate that idea through Faith in the idea that “God Is Love” and “God Loves You!”
Here is a challenge I hope you will accept. Find some time to meditate for a few days on this practice. At a time and in a place where it is rather quiet and peaceful just close your eyes and:
Breathe in and say:
“Let me Rest”
Breathe out and say”
“In Your Love”
Practice this for a week or two and let Him guide you – He will!
