Today, I am starting a series that I will do weekly, about things I know for sure. This weeks installment is called God sized.
In today’s world of supersize and extra large excesses, I want to discuss something else that is much larger than we can comprehend. That is God. One thing I know as it has been demonstrated in my life over and over, is that God is bigger, and better than any belief or religious idea, I have ever held.
Religion is a manmade system, designed to explain God and no matter how well intentioned, it always falls short and fail miserably. I encourage you to think about what you believe. What is your personal beliefs and religion. Now, I want you to realize no matter how well intentionned and sincere you are, those ideas and beliefs fall short. God is much bigger and better than that.
God can never be contained by thought, formula, doctrine, dogma or concept. God fits in nobody’s box. We all have gotten it wrong. Religion is simply our attempt to understand God. It serves as a starting place, a kindergarden in spiritual life if you will, but never assume, its absolute, unless you want to be absolutely wrong.
Everyday, God desires to reveal Godself to us. God transcends religion, politics, culture, race, gender, writing, philosphy and religion. Allow God to open you heart to the Largeness of God.
No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, never so much as imagined anything quite like it- What God has arranged for those who love him. 1Cor. 2:9 Message
