God, You Are Who You Say You Are

And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. - Matthew 13:57-58 (KJV)

We can limit God in our own lives by pride based in the ignorance we call knowledge.

We are created in God's image - he is beyond our understanding. Just as the reflection in the mirror does not understand the life and depth of the one reflected, so is our comprehension also limited.

God is much smarter than we are, God is much wiser than we are, and the good news is -- God loves us.

Our wisest course is to seek God's counsel - and then follow it.




Father God,

Thank you for loving us.

We know that you are, we know you are love, we know that you act based on that love.

Help us to see with a spiritual vision the route you have prepared for us.

We acknowledge our limitations lord, we are like chickens scratching the surface of the barnyard, thinking ourselves knowledgeable that we found some feed, when an entire universe of knowledge is beyond us.

Teach us what we need to know, give us this day our daily bread.

In Jesus Christ's name, within the access granted by his shed blood, we come to seek your counsel now ---
