Seek the Lord

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways, says the Lord.” 
Isaiah 55:8

Where do we get the idea that we can understand God? Know God? Explain God? Our brains are just too puny and simple to contain the God who created the complexities of the universe. And yet little by little, brilliant minds like Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and all those Nobel prize winning physicists and astronomers, have been able to discover and describe how God has put His system together revealing His amazing design. 

In the same way, there are some things He reveals to us in His Word about how He wants us to relate to Him and to our brothers and sisters, His children. “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29

“Seek the LORD while He may be found.” (Isaiah 55:6a) Indeed if we can seek Him, we can find Him. And if He could be known in the Old Testament, it should be easier for us to get to know Him today, because Jesus came and walked the earth, and spoke our language. Jesus tells Philip in John 14:9, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” 

Lord, may we see You and hear You and experience You the way You want us to. May we not be the ones to put barriers up to prevent You from reaching us, even to the depths of our heart. May we not hide from you in our guilt and shame and unworthiness.
