If We Understood God

Someone has said that “If we understood God, He would then not be large enough to worship.” I do not agree with this, because in His Word we find enough information to understand Him. Here are just a few thoughts from God’s Word to help with understanding His personality:

Exodus 15:11. “Lord, who is like You among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, revered with praises, performing wonders?”

Malachi 3:6, 7. “Because I, Yahweh, have not changed, you descendants of Jacob have not been destroyed. Since the days of your fathers, you have turned from My statutes; you have not kept them.”

Isa. 42:8. “I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another or My praise to idols.”

Isaiah 44:8 “ Do not be startled or afraid. Have I not told you and declared it long ago? You are my witnesses! Is there any God but Me? There is no other Rock; I do not know any.”

Isaiah 45:5,6 “I am Yahweh, and there is no other; there is no God but Me. I will strengthen you, though you do not know Me, so that all may know from the rising of the sun to its setting that there is no one but Me. I am Yahweh, and there is no other.”

Isaiah 46:10. “I declare the end from the beginning, and from long ago what is not yet done, saying: My plan will take place, and I will do all My will.”

God is unchangeable, holy, and eternal. Regardless of what happens what we find in Scripture concerning Him will always be true. In His eternal Word we understand that what He accomplishes is according to His divine purposes, not for our pleasure. In this alone I understand that which occurs around me is done because of Him. This I understand. What I do not need to understand is the ‘why’.

Jesus is Lord
