Time for Five Minute Friday!!! Five minutes. No edits. No revisions. Set the timer….Go!
To describe or illustrate. Measure and create limits. I’ve been reading these past few months about the characterics and attributes of God. How to define Him. You can’t. I mean, we try but really – how do you know the unknowable?
The yearning to know What cannot be known, to comprehend the Incomprehensible, to touch and taste the Unapproachable, arises from the image of God in the nature of man…The answer of the Bible is simply, ‘through Jesus Christ our Lord.'” – Tozer
The answer Tozer provided for me last week: Jesus Christ. Jesus is the living Word. The picture of the Father. So, to know Jesus is to know the Father. And what is He like? I can’t wait to dig into the Gospels. Wouldn’t it be an amazing study to go through the Gospels and write down all of the characteristics of Christ?
It would seem to define God is impossible, but He still invites us in. He offers to shelter, a place to abide for us. The Almighty and Most High says we can take refuge in Him.
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalm 91:1
The One who is above all, in perfect control of all, and sustaining it all – works to make a place of rest for me. A place for me to come home to. What does it mean, practically speaking, to “abide in the Almighty?”
Maybe it means I pray and ask for His help today. Ask for patience with people. Ask for wisdom to make decisions.
Maybe it means I put His word in my heart, memorize and meditate on it throughout my day.
Maybe it means I listen to music which draws my thoughts to Him.
Maybe it means, when I’m overwhelmed, to go into a quiet place (even if its the bathroom) and cry to Him.
The one who Trust in God, God says:
Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. Psalm 91:14
Know His name friend. Learn Him from the scriptures, especially the Person and Godhead of Jesus Christ.
