“God is always changing the way I think of Him. I am not saying that God Himself is changing, or that my theology is open and I blur the lines on truth; I am only saying I think I know who He is and then I figure out I don’t know very much at all.”
Donald Miller, Searching for God’s Know What
Have you ever felt this way? Felt like you had God all figured out? I have. There was a time in my life that I thought I had everything figured out. God, life, me.
Now? I am somewhat closer to figuring me out. Not that there still isn’t a lot to understand but I can be patient. I can only absorb so much self-knowledge at a time. :0)
I’m kinda getting life figured out. At times it’s been very hard with places of beauty thrown in. Right now, it’s mostly beautiful with the occasional hard place.
Now, as far as God goes, I am not even close. What I know is that I will never know the whole of who God is. God is mystery. What has been revealed to me is that I am loved by God like no one ever has or ever will love me. God knows what is best for me. God wants to see me be who I was designed to be, who I truly am in my made-in-the-image-God self.
God is always changing my understanding of who God is and how God works. Is God the same to you today as 5 years ago? If so, consider asking God to allow you to see something new, something fresh. It isn’t God that is changing but your perception and understanding of God. Open your heart and your mind and see what God reveals.
