The God Who Is

It is easy to create in my own mind a god that I want, instead of the God who Is.


I read a very interesting post at Marks Mind that reminded me of an important concept when studying the Word of God. When I read the scripture, I often come to it with my own preconceived notions and ideas, and put those into what I am reading. It is very easy to create in my own mind a god that I want, instead of the God Who is. This in effect creates an idol because I am worshpping something besides the true God.


Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory,
for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness! - Psalm 155:1
