Does a saw act more important than the sawyer?
As if a shovel did its shoveling by using a ditch digger!
As if a hammer used the carpenter to pound nails!
Isaiah 10:15 (The Message)
I just love how in The Message God is described as "God of the Angel Armies". He is huge and mighty. We can not even comprehend His holiness. We can not over exaggerate His greatness.
Yet I often forget that I was created for Him and not the other way around. God made me to serve and love Him. I did not make a God for my service and pleasure.
All things were created by him. He created everything in heaven and on earth. He created everything that can be seen and everything that can't be seen. He created kings, powers, rulers and authorities. Everything was created by him and for him. Colossians 1:16
God is not my genie in a bottle, nor is He part of a 12 step plan to get rich (or have a clean house or get my kids to obey). He is God!
And so my desire is to choose relationship with God over requests of God. To abide with Him and dwell in His presence. To be silent and soak in what I can of His love. To obey and love others.
