The Bible tells us that we are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:27), but it does not say that God is made in our image. God is not the bigger and better version of humans, we are simply intended to be a startling and amazing likeness of him. At our best, we only represent a hint of who and what He is. Isaiah 40:25-28, reminds us that God is never weary, and while there are things that we do not understand, God never even has a question come to His mind. The Apostle Paul, no stranger to humbling encounters with God pushed the limits of language when he tried to compose an appropriate doxology for God in Romans 11:33-36, “O 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 hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to Him, and it shall be recompensed unto Him again? For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen.” The answer to these rhetorical questions is obvious – no one has known God’s mind; no one has been his counselor; and God owes no one. Notice the last phrase of Romans 11:36 “of him” reminds us that God is the source of everything. “through him” reminds us that God is the instrumental cause of all that exists. And “to him” reminds us that God is the ultimate purpose for all thigs to exist. The first thing we must understand about God is that He is not like any created thing, because He created all things and therefore, in control of all the things that we cannot control. Therefore, learn to rest in His direction when we can’t see the end.
