God Thoughts

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”  AW Tozer

Eventually, at some point in our walk with God, we must ask Him “why”?

This is not the “why” of disappointment with God or of moral failure on our parts or of persecution or suffering.  Any child can react to life’s realities and feel entitled to seek an answer for his discomfort or disappointment or debility.

This “why” is deeper and comes from the core of our being.  It is the existential “why” of wanting to know the reason, the purpose or the place our lives are meant to fill.  Yes, this is the “why am I here” question.

Sometimes we all want a diagram showing the way things really are with everything drawn out to scale and labeled and with a big “You Are Here” arrow that points to a spot on the diagram that shows our location and our connection to all the other pieces.

The Bible offers us this:

Bring My sons from afar And My daughters from the ends of the earth, Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made.”  Isaiah 43:6-7

God says we were created for His glory.  If this is so, then we are here for a purpose much bigger than ourselves.  When we begin to get our minds around this idea as the very best answer to the deeper “why” question, all the other lesser “whys” are answered as well.

I hope you’ll walk with me through this process of renewing and redeeming our God thoughts so we can experience more fully God’s will for our lives.
