About the Author:
I home school my son and we have been blessed this year to be able to use Christian curriculum. We are studying the history of the world in Christian perspective. Our lessons have recently focused Abraham's journey from Ur to the land of Canaan.
Currently we are reading about the different cultures of Mesopotamia. These cultures had some great accomplishments like the wheel, irrigation and writing. But they didn't serve the Living God. Instead, they served many gods; gods of their own creation. The Sumerians, for example, made their gods resemble humans not only in appearance, but in actions as well. Their god Anu, god of the sky, supposedly ruled other gods, but was constantly threatened by rebellion from the other gods. I started thinking about this. If you are going to create a god to worship, why would you give it limited power? Why would you make it susceptible to being overthrown? Why would you make it fallible?
Then God spoke to my spirit. Don't we do the same thing with Him? We didn't create God, but we create a version of Him. A god of our understanding. We limit His power because we don't fully understand who HE is.
Don't limit God by your limited understanding of who He is.
Go deeper with God. Seek Him with all your heart and He will be found. My soul is still crying out for more. I want to know Him in all His glory. I want to discover all I can about this God who is so in love with me. I pray this is your desire too. Just a closer walk with Him.
