God Reveals Himself

I often wonder how so many people can live with a continuing hope that they will in some way be able to commune with God through their intellectual capacities. When will they realize that if they could possibly “discover” God, they realize that with the intellect, they would be equal to God? Isaiah is a dramatic example of God’s revelation of Himself to mankind. Isaiah could have tried for a million years to reach God by means of his intellect. But brainpower is not the means by which we find God! Brethren, it is true that all of us would still be far from God if He had not graciously and in love revealed Himself to us. In the space of a short second of time, the Lord who loves us can reveal Himself to the willing spirit of a man or woman. It is only then that an Isaiah, or any one of us, can say with humble assurance, “I know Him!” A committed Christian, then, should have upon him an element that is beyond psychology—beyond all natural laws and into spiritual laws!

Verse

I saw also the Lord . . . then said I, woe is me! for I am undone. Isaiah 6:1, 5

Thought

Brainpower is not the means by which we find God!

Prayer

Lord, I pray that You will continue to help me find You in Your own way, because I know that the wisdom of man is foolishness to You.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
