Nibble of Bread : Can you figure God out?

November 24, 2012

Matthew 17:2-3,7

As the men watched, Jesus’ appearance was transformed so that his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as light. 3 Suddenly, Moses and Elijah appeared and began talking with Jesus.

Then Jesus came over and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” And when they looked up, Moses and Elijah were gone, and they saw only Jesus.

God is the creator of everything we see, know and touch (Genesis 1). The earth is His footstool (Acts 7:49), and the His hands span the universe (Isaiah 40:12). Are we capable of figuring out all of our God’s thoughts? Should a jar of clay be greater than the Potter (Isaiah 29:13-16)?

Believing in Jesus is about building a relationship with Him. Trying to figure Him out is very good, and has great value. However, when we cannot, are we to get frustrated, or discouraged? No. We should rejoice that we serve a God that is greater than us, far greater! I’m glad God is not limited to my brain power, or we would be in big trouble.

The above verse gives a glimpse of the depth of God’s ways. Where did Moses and Elijah come from? How? What?

How did Jesus transform? What did it look like? Was it fast, or slow?

We all have many questions, that may never get answered in this life. There is nothing wrong with that. The questions we really need the answer to, can be found, if we seek Him first (Matthew 6:33). Or if we call on Him, He will answer us (Jeremiah 33:3). God’s Word is better than anything we know, we can count on His Word. Just remember: His ways are greater, His love is higher than the heavens (Psalm 108:4), and God is Love.
