What does Gods face look like?
What color is His hair?
What is His favorite sport?
“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.” – Lamentations 3: 21-22
Why is it if we don’t even know what Gods face looks like that we suppose we know the depth of His Love for us?
How can we compare His Love for us to a human concept?
How can we ever assume to really know God?
I have said it before and I will say it on my death bed if there is to be one- “God Is Love!” We can talk about puppies and girlfriends and boyfriends and ice cream flavors and even husband and wife- all of this deals with human love. I am not talking about anything that I or you or all the harnessed PhDs on earth could ever hope to explain- because it comes from a source that is not us!
This same concept applies when people try to explain exactly how God wants you to live. How do they know?
Here is the secret of how God wants you to live- “Love one another!”
I am no God expert and in fact I am no expert on anything but this much I know. If any element of God could be explained in human terms, that element would then become less God-like- wouldn’t it?
Here is a meditation for you. Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed and begin to take some deep breathes that with every exhale release stress. Close your eyes and begin to get a picture of space. Yes the one everywhere that can’t be defined- just space in every direction- if you can see the end of it you are not in space. There is no end to this horizon just limitless space- that is how limitless God’s Love is! Now as you begin to get a sense of this enormity:
Breathe in and say:
“God my hope is in”
Breathe out and say:
Practice this until you see the unlimited hope that can only come from God!
Don’t worry- Be Grace-Full!!
