“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” (Psalm 90:2)

So many persons have convinced themselves that the God that exists is exactly how they imagine him to be.  He, in the opinion of many, is something that can be grasped and someone that can directed.  I saw this notion expressed recently.  In a social media post, a person I knew decades ago was speaking about missing those that had passed.  He asked, “Am I the only person on earth that misses people that probably ended up in Hell not because they was bad people but just because they were not Christian.”  One of his friends quibbled, “If Heaven didn't accept sinners it would be an empty place.”  Both of these comments were made by person who would openly claim to believe in Jesus, though they would say they do not follow Him well.  Yet, the God that these comments portray looks nothing like God of Scripture.

Let each of us realize and come to accept that God is considerably more vast than we can begin to envision.  The pages of Scripture, though vast and profound, only begin to tell of the wonder that is God.  The Psalmist writes, “You have multiplied, O LORD my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told. (Psalm 40:5)” And the writer of First Kings echoes this thought when stating, “…Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you; how much less this house that I have built! (1 Kings 8:27)” Even the gospel proclaim that the acts of Christ could not be contain for, “…Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.”

For this reason, let each of us, today and every day be reminded of the how great is our God!  Let His greatness be that which drives us.  Let His prominence be that which motivates us.  Let His fame be our every desire and let Him be gloried in all we do.  Let each of us live every moment for the God that is not the God that we want, for He is worthy!
