God refuses to be that small

A college student once told a Christian professor: “For me to believe in God, I have to have a God that I can understand.” The professor smiled and replied, “God refuses to be that small!”

God refuses to be small enough for us to understand on our terms. In fact, we couldn’t understand Him in that way if we wanted to.

In Isaiah 55:8-9 God declared: “… my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” God doesn’t fit in a neat little box. He’s not easily understood. He’s different than we are. He THINKS differently than we do… and He ACTS differently than we do.

And that’s why it is so important to read and study the Bible. It tells us all we need to know about WHO God is and WHAT He’s like.
