The Greatest Paradox
The LORD our God is the greatest paradox of all:
He is everywhere, but nowhere to be seen.
He is all powerful, yet mere men are allowed to defy His perfect plans.
He is larger than the Universe, but lives in our hearts.
He is righteous and just, yet appears to ignore evil in this world.
He is loving, but permits suffering.
He is like a tornado, yet blows like a gentle breeze
He is The Creator, but many can’t find His signature.
He is all knowing, yet is best understood by the heart of a child.
He has legions at His command, but where are they?
He holds the entire Universe in His hand, yet knows every hair on my head.
He is eternal, but died on the Cross.
He is unique, yet created billions of us uniquely different in His image.
He lived on Earth as the man of sorrows, but His first miracle was to turn water into wine at a party.
He is stern and serious, yet He gave us the power of playfulness, joy, love, and laughter.
He is our bountiful provider, but provides only that which we need and not everything we want.
He is our protector, yet allows the enemy to wander the earth like a roaring lion seeking to devour us.
He is the King of Kings, but is our personal Father and teacher.
He is loving and gracious, yet spares not the rod when He chastises us.
He has a voice of thunder, but whispers so quietly we can barely hear Him.
He is gentle, meek and merciful; yet He will come in power and wrath to destroy the unrighteous, unjust, and unfaithful.
He is Lord of Lords, but came as a suffering servant to save us from our sins.
Who can fathom our incredible, amazing God?
Who can measure all His ways?
No one, no not one, for He is Holy; there is none like Him.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. (Isa 55:8)
Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “HE CATCHES THE WISE IN THEIR OWN CRAFTINESS”; and again, “THE LORD KNOWS THE THOUGHTS OF THE WISE, THAT THEY ARE FUTILE.”
Therefore let no one boast in men. (1Co3:18-21) Rather let your heart boast in Christ Jesus in all things.
Let not your heart be hardened in pride. Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. (Isa 55:6) Follow Christ Jesus with all your heart, mind, and soul to salvation. Turn neither to the right nor the left lest you be deceived and destroyed in your own wisdom – for all is not as it looks.
