God --- Incomprehensible!

And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. (Isaiah 6:3) 

What are the benefits of realizing God Incomprehensible? We no longer reduce Him to manageable terms. We are no longer tempted to manipulate Him and His will. . . or defend Him and His ways. Like the grieving prophet, we get new glimpses of Him "lofty and exalted," surrounded by legions of seraphim who witness Him as "Lord of Hosts" as they shout forth His praises in antiphonal voice (Isa. 6:1-2).

In a world consumed with thoughts of itself, filled with people impressed with each other, having disconnected with the only One worthy of praise, it's time we return to Theology 101 and sit silently in His presence. It's time we catch a fresh glimpse of Him who, alone, is awesome---incomprehensible. 

Day by Day with Charles Swindoll 

Normally, I can be pretty outspoken at times about most topics. But...

This is not one of them! 

Why? I couldn't even begin to put words into God's holiness. Any words that I attempt to use to express God's holiness will not do any justice to this post. There is one exception though. Yes, there is one word that I can use to describe God and holiness. Wanna know what it is? Ok, I'll give it to you! Here it goes!

AWESOME! 

Got that? Our God is an awesome God! He reigns from heaven with wisdom, power, and love! Do those words sound familiar? They should! That is because many of our churches have been singing this song since we have been little kids. Because we serve such an awesome God, we can experience the following: 
  • His awesome wisdom.
  • His awesome power.
  • His awesome love. 
And this is only the beginning. If I were to attempt to list all of God's awesome attributes, I could easily spend the rest of my life in my finite attempt to explain God's awesomeness. Ok, maybe awesomeness is not a word, but you get what I mean. Obviously, everything that I have said about God's "awesomeness" has been said in jest. In all seriousness, God is definitely awesome and given the fact that we may know a lot about Him, there are far less Christians who actually know Him. Just when we think we have God all figured out, God always teaches us something new about Him, His personality, and His character. That is what makes God---incomprehensible. 

Thank you so much for reading this far friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' precious name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!...:-)
