Brother Ben’s Garden: God


God gets a bad rap these days.

 

He gets credit for all kinds of things like wars, accidents and the weather.  Hollywood is fascinated with Him. He delivers the Israelites out of Egypt and looks like George Burns or Morgan Freeman. He is constantly questioned about His role in creation.

 

He is Spirit so we can’t see him. Some people make idols of him: gold, brass, bronze, stone, and sometimes mountains.

 

People even like to think that they are God. The problem however seems to be that He doesn’t fit in a box.

 

God is the most interesting person in the universe and the most beautiful.

 

 

He has many names:

 

  • Jehovah –

And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Issac and unto Jacob, but the name of God Almighty,

 but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.

Exodus 6:3

 

  • Father –

But you are our Father,

though Abraham does not know us

or Israel acknowledge us:

You, Lord, are our Father,

our Redeemer from of old is Your name

Isaiah 63:16

 

  • Jesus –

“I and the Father are One”

John 10:30

  • Holy Spirit –

For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human spoke

from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit

2 Peter 1:21

He is as gentle as the breeze touching your face, as infinite as the cosmos. So personal, you can talk to him right now.

 

Simply say, “God, I would like to talk to you. Here’s one thing I’ve been wondering about. Can you help me?”
