I think we don’t know how to take time to consider God. At least not often enough, nor full enough, nor honest enough, nor desperate enough. We get in a “flow of life” where we have so many things to do on our google calendar, so many tasks to complete, and so many aspirations to achieve that by the end of the day if we honestly reflect, some of us will have spent more time “doing our hair” than magnifying the greatness of our God and seeking His glory.
God’s glory is so infinitely pervasive, being what holds together existence, that if we were even to take but a moment to consider it, it should radically change how we live our lives. No longer does this life become about our plans, our purposes, our desires, wants, needs, etc. but rather fully for the glory of an all consuming, all powerful, perfectly just, and infinitely holy God.
There is so much more that could be said on this, and indeed so much more that I want to say, but in light of the call to consider God, I want to keep it short and simply implore those of you, however few or however many end up reading through this small blog, to look at the following verses from Romans, read them, consider them, read them again, consider them again, and draw a conclusion on what this portion of God’s very own Word to us is very directly saying to us. Then consider what your response will be to the Almighty God.
"Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
“For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has become His counselor?”
“Or who has first given to Him
And it shall be repaid to him?”
For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."
