But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
(Psalms 88:15 (NIV))
Everyone in the world has an image of how they see God!
Some see an angry old man. Some see a vindictive character. Others see someone who just doesn’t care about us, while others see Him as someone who takes great joy in each of us. Even atheists, who claim that He doesn’t exist, have a mental image of Him, or should I say the absence of Him, for it takes a very vivid imagination to claim that He doesn’t exist.
What is your image of God?
Is you image of God distorted by the characteristics that your earthly father displayed?
Do you find it difficult to believe that someone who created everything that exists knows you intimately? We are told that He does!
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
(Psalm 139:13-14 (NIV))
When you think of God, do you see Him in this manner?
Is this how you know the Lord?
