Who Do You Say That I Am

God, I don’t know who you are. You certainly are not the God of my youth. You are not the God of “what I expected.” Here’s what I do know. You are a God of love, full of grace; a God who expects people to do your calling, your bidding.

I appreciate your mystery. I respect your awesomeness. Your silence intrigues and complexes me. I want more, I need more. We want more; we need more of you so we can help others.

Therefore, I pray today that we strive to have more than just a conscious level of who you are. I pray that we strive to live at a deeper level whereby we will have a joyful, love affair with you. Where we are obedient to your calling and are willing to do more than we want to do because we understand, like Jesus, what a meaningful relationship with you is about.

===========================================================

  1. Is God the same person to you today as God was 5, 10 or 20 years ago? If different, what made that difference and how is that difference evident in you life?
  2. Who do you say God is?

    This is awesome! You put very nicely into words what I have been thinking about lately but could not put into words!!!

    Thank you.

    In writing my personal statement for Seminary, God showed me how he is different for me now than 5, 10, and especially 20 years ago.

    I really don’t know that much about God, but I do know that 20 years ago, for me, He was wrathful and condemning. But now, praise God, He is loving, compassionate and awesome!!

  2. Your statement rang so true for me…He is certainly not the God of what I expected:). His ways are so not our ways. He is full of surprise and wonder. I had to get used to just trusting Him with all I have and letting go of what I had in my hand, so that I could recieve what He had in His. These days, I am overwhelmed by His goodness and His love for me…But, what I am most overwhelmed with is His purpose and assignments for me are so grand that I just stand in awe of Him.

    He, for me, today is everything and all things…No goodness apart from Him.

    Thanks Tony…. Your obedience with this blog is so helpful in reminding others of Gods goodness….
