Too many people want to make God into someone or something they want Him to be. Why? Because it’s easier to pretend to pay homage to someone or something of your own creation that to acknowledge and worship the true God. After all, your creation allows you to do whatever you want to do.
We must recognize God for who He is … all-knowing (omniscient), all-seeing (omnipresent), all-powerful (omnipotent), Holy, the Creator of heaven and earth, the Sovereign Lord, The God of Heaven, the “I AM” … and not distill Him down to some profane idea of what we think He should be like. Think about it. If we can make God into something we want Him to be, why would “that God” be worth serving? That’s a form of idolatry. But then again, that’s what idolatry is really all about … creating a God that can serve you.
The only way to know and understand the Lord God is to read what He says in the Holy Bible. In it, God reveals His character so that we may know when any behavior is inconsistent with His character. In it, God tells us what He likes and doesn’t like. In it, God tells us what He expects of us and how He expects us to live.
Live and walk in the recognition of who God really is, and not who we want Him to be.
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”
