We do not have the ability to understand God’s wisdom and goodness. “The creationist maintains that the degree of complexity and order which science has discovered in the Universe could never be generated by chance or accident.” Some stress that everything said about God is approximate and huMan language is inadequate to properly explain God. Moreover, as God is a celestial, timeless, infinite being, it is hard to describe God in a worldly language, as words used in articulating finite creatures might not adequately interpret God.
the Bible refers to God as something that people can’t fully understand. For example, John 4:24 says God is a spirit, and as Exodus 33:20 points out, “You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.”
As sinful huMan beings, we are incapable of seeing God in all His glory. “His appearance is utterly unimaginable and too glorious to be safely perceived by sinful Man.”
God is not absolutely unknowable, and yet it is true that we cannot define Him adequately. But we can conceive and name Him in an “analogical way”. The perfections manifested by creatures are in God, not merely nominally (equivoce) but really and positively, since He is their Source.
We are in awe of the simplicity in which He created the very air we breathe and land we walk upon. He already had our huMan bodies in mind as He prepared the components of the atmosphere. He designed each of us with the same attention to detail and created within us all the power to overcome obstacles.
We could go on trying to rationalize, but rather – let us pray.
Dear God, we are in awe of Your power and knowledge. Thank You for creating within us the ability to overcome obstacles we face this day and always. Our gift! In Your Image we are made. Father, we humbly ask You for forgiveness, create in me a new heart. It is a new day. Father, in my life be Thou glorified, in Jesus’ Name, Amen. May Your Word flow from my heart and lips. Father, bless me with an insatiable hunger for Your Essence. Moses was in Your Presence without need for physical, for he was in Your Presence. Touch me LORD, fill me till I overflow with You. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
