Who Looks For God Anymore??
It's an epidemic- That's affecting the Body.of.Christ
We spend time pouring over the Bible
not to see the God of the Bible
But to find out
What He can do for us...
As if He hasn't done enough
By sending Jesus to die for our sins
Or giving us every day we've ever lived...
Who looks for God anymore?
...I asked God that question the other day
I'm not interested in vain things that will only wither away
God is eternal
He wants me to Know Him
And I want to know Him....
So I went on a scavenger hunt through the Book of Isaiah
I knew I could find a pretty good snapshot of the God I was looking for
The Only True God
and Here's some of what He revealed to me
would you know...through His Word!
God revealed Himself as
The Holy One of Israel
The Lord All-Powerful
The Mighty One of Israel
The God of Jacob/Israel
The Holy God
The Living God
The True God
The Only God
The Lord Your God
A place of safety
The Light of Israel
The One who Saves/Savior
Father who lives forever
Prince of Peace
The God who comforts
All these characteristics - the majority being repeated more than once. God was saying more than what would happen to Israel and to the rest of the children of God in the book of Isaiah. He was revealing Himself. And the same is true for the rest of the Bible. There are more than promises in there...promises are good yes but don't you think you should get to know the One who made all these promises.
The phrase The Lord All-Powerful was repeated in the Book of Isaiah over 60 times clearly God is trying to let us know He has all the power and if we could understand that it would be easy for us to realize that absolutely Nothing is too hard for God.
If anyone dares asks the question "Who Looks for God Anymore?"
I will boldly raise my hand. Yes, He's unfathomable but He's still revealed some of Himself in His word and I'd like to get to know Him as much as possible
Everything else is just increased blessings
His presence in my life...is the ultimate blessing
