I think sometimes we, in the shackles of our flawed and human perception, lose perspective on how incredibly limitless God is. These things--like unbelievable displays of lightning shooting wildly through the sky, or endless clouds bending over the planet--seem so amazingly large-scale. Yet, in reality, God is Master of even the most powerful of these situations.
Tonight, I felt as if God was telling me to realize His existence; not simply through my vision and perspective, but in my walk and my example. I, like anyone, often find myself placing far too much importance on my reputation, and how I look to other people. But, isn’t that counterproductive? If I am ever to live a life that glorifies Christ in every way, it needs to start with the death of me. Not the death of my personality...not the death of my humanity or vulnerability...simply, death to the “me” that wants to claim the glory that my soul earnestly desires to turn back to the Light. Humanity keeps us humble, and humility shows humanity’s ever-present thirst for a Perfecter.
My God is that Perfecter. When I acknowledge my weakness, His essence becomes stronger and richer in its exuding from such irony. I am no longer what I was; I am me...with Him. That makes all the difference.
