Thankful for the Person of God

Listening to worldly wisdomówisdom that is popular in current cultureómay give a limited impression of our God. There are those who want me to believe He is far away. They will tell me I have to figure things out on my own. I have to tough it out. They will say the Creator of the universe isnít concerned with my petty, earthly problems. That He has more important things on his plate. Some tell me He is Spirit, therefore is only concerned with spiritual matters.

Iím grateful to worship God who is personal. When I go to Him in prayer I have confidence He is listening to me, personally. A priest, or pastor or a very holy person may be next door, petitioning with complicated words and with great knowledge. They may be praying for the nation or for the world. My simple needs are not overshadowed.

God is Spirit. But to me, and to every believer He is a person and a personal God who focusses His full attention on me. He hears each cry, whether it is for strength when Iím exhausted, for peace in the war within my mind, or for understanding when Iím confused. He hears my wordsóand more importantly He hears my heartóand has promised to answer.
    So when questions swirl through my mind
  • Does God care about my physical ailments? Even those that are not life threatening?

  • Does the Creator of the universe care about my emotional needs? About my upsets and frustrations others may label as insignificant?

  • Does He care about my depression or sadness, fears, or nervousness?

  • Does he care about physical circumstancesóeven the weather?

  • The answer is yes. The Person of God cares about what I care about. He cares more deeply than I can imagine, because his love for me is greater than I can comprehend.

He is the Lord of my flesh as well as Lord of my spirit. Nothing is too difficult or insignificant.

He is my Father. I am his child. How do I know this God? I know Jesus.
God the Father delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his Son. Jesus is the image of the invisible God.

Christ is the exact representation of God the Father. He is God incarnate. Jesus is the radiance of his glory and the exact representation of his nature

The person of Jesus stands at the right hand of God the Father to intercede for us. Jesus is able to sympathize with our weaknesses. He knows our temptations. So we have confidence to draw near to the throne of God, knowing we will receive mercy and grace. Help in our time of need.

Donít take my word for this, read Godís word:

Matthew 7:7, 17:20, 21:22, 23:9

John 14:3, 16:23

Romans 8:34, 10:12

Colossians 1:13-15

Hebrews 1:3, 4:14-16

James 3:9

Genesis 1:26-27, 5:1-2, 9:6

Jeremiah 10:6, 14:22

Thank you Father that you are a personal God. I donít need to go to a mountaintop or chapel, or any special place to find you. I donít need incense or herbs. I donít need a certain level of education.

I only need to put my faith in Jesus Christ, even if that faith is little.
