God Can’t Fit In A Box

  • image

    God is not limited, He is limitless, and we can’t put Him in a box.There are too many boxes in which we are expected to find God in.
    We need to do this, we need to do that, depending into which box about God we look in.

    Psalm 93 verse 2: “Your throne has been established from the beginning, You are from eternity”.

    John 8 verse 32: Jesus said the Truth will set you free, pity if we look in the wrong box, we could get a boxed eye view of Truth. The Glory of The Lord can be seen everywhere, but most people miss it.

    The glory of The Lord can’t be contained to a box.

    Exodus 33 verses 7 to 11: If we look at where Moses spoke to God. The ‘tent of meeting ’ was located outside the  camp, that is some distance away from where the people lived. The boxed mentality of God.

    The Glory of  The Lord is to be seen outside the camp. Outside because it can’t be contained to man’s ways. If we want to speak to God face to face, do we desire it enough to go outside, current ways outside any box mentality.

    Perhaps because the Glory of The Lord is to be seen outside the camp, it gives a fairly strong hint that , if we want intimacy with God, we may not find Him in the confines of our current understanding, but outside it.

    Too many people are trying to keep the status quo, and are happy with what they know about God. He created the known universe, and people are apparently still discovering things in the great unknown of outer space.

    I have a saying I share with a lot of people, How big is God, and ask them to draw a large circle to represent His vastness. Then I ask them to be honest a and draw a circle in the circle, to represent how much they know about God. Some being quite humble draw a pin head, but most draw a small circle.

    There is so much space in the rest of the circle, that represents the vastness of God, It really makes one think. The God that created us wants us to search and find out more about Him, and I am sure with this limited life time we have on earth, we will still have plenty of things to learn about Him in eternity.

    Does a box mentality about God allow Him to lead into a radical life-change? Romans 2 verse 4:{Message Bible}:

    “In kindness He takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change”.

    Does a box mentality allow our thinking to be disrupted and confronted?

    Our Lord and Our friend said Himself in Luke 49 to 51: {Message Bible}:

    “I’ve come to start a fire on this on this earth—-how i wish it were blazing right now! I’ve come to change everything, turn everything right side up—-how I long for it to be finished! Do you think I came to smooth things over and make everything nice/ Not so, I’ve come to disrupt and confront”.

    Can A box mentality, contain more than we can dream of?  Our Lord and Our Friend tell us in John 10 verse 10: {Message Bible}:

    “I came so they {us} can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they {us} ever dreamed of”.

    Don’t settle for the status quo, Our God is an Awesome God, and there is always more to be found out about His great love for us.

    God Bless.
