No matter how hard we try to perceive the awesomeness of God, he is still God and we are not. We must forever remember that the original, and still primary, sin was to try to become like God in terms of knowledge and understanding. We are to know God, but we can never fully know everything about him. We are to take on his character, but we cannot approach his majesty, righteousness, or holiness on our own. This is both exciting and frustrating. But, the promise remains that one day we will be like him and see him as he is and know fully even as we are fully known .
"My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
— Isaiah 55:8-9
Dear Lord, thank you for being so patient with us when we cannot fully understand and appreciate your holy character. Thank you for sending Jesus so we can know you better and trust you to know us better than we know ourself. We look forward to seeing you face to face when Jesus comes to bring use home. Until that day, know we love you. In Jesus name. Amen.
