Pictures of God
Got a picture of God somewhere? Most pictures of God are locked away in our individual minds.
Perhaps some of us have (or have had) these kinds of images of God.
~The God who leans over Heaven’ banister, shouting and pointing at you or me, calling us out on a foul or two.
~The clip-board God, walking around, watching, marking down on His clip-board all our faults, our missteps, our harsh words and wrong deeds.
~The folded-arms God, who has turned a deaf ear to our cries and pleadings simply because we didn’t say the right words, say ‘thee’ and ‘thou’ enough to suit His tastes.
~How about the all-white God, who despises anyone else of another color.
Allow me to present a different, a gentler picture of God.
“Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His mercy endures forever.”
(Psalm 136: 1)
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
(2 Corinthians 12:9)
“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.”
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
May the God of grace and peace be present in every situation you face today.
