God As God


"No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understand it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory" (1 Cor.2:7-8).

The age of the internet can be a bit dangerous if we let it. I have heard people as they try to make a point, say, "well, I read it on the internet." This can be detrimental if we try to be our own engineers or lawyers. It can get downright unsafe and risky if we try to diagnose our own illnesses.. We need to let the doctors be doctors, even if we want a second or third opinion.... God is God! As God, he is our sovereign, and free to do his will according to His purpose. Sometimes when we question authority, that authority feels threatened. God is never threatened when we rise up to question him. I feel that God simply won't give an answer to a question that is not appropriate. Today's verse says to me that God is on His plane and we are on ours. It might be good for us to read and meditate upon 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 today. God chooses to intervene as He answers prayers and He acts by His own providence. Salvation does not begin with man, but with God. He is the one who invites...He is the one who chooses....He is the one who saves...God's wonderful grace covers us, but emanates from Him..."You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ, have clothed yourselves with Christ" (Gal.3:27). We are invited to unite with Him through Jesus, not through anything that we have earned. God gives it all to us because He loves us..This is truly God as God....

Have a great day... We can all make a difference... Love mark Phil.4:11
