An Audacious God?

Consider the audacity of a God who claims to be the “I Am.”

The essence of our Creator is beyond what we can comprehend with our limited one hundred billion neurons—give or take a few. Our brains possess enormous power to conceive and believe, but only to the extent of our innate potential. And we do not have the potential to fully understand or explain God. Human logic is incapable of explaining divine truth.

Our Creator defies human explanation. He said so himself (remember, we’re talking about an audacious God). “‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ says the LORD. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts higher than your thoughts'”(Isaiah 55:8-9).

Many of us have probably made our own bold claims that we can explain the mysteries of God, but we can’t. Our finite brains can never fully comprehend the infinite mind of the One who set the world—make that the entire cosmos—in motion. We like to use analogies, especially parent-child analogies, to explain how God operates. But every example or illustration or analogy falls short of explaining the essence of God. The best we can do is offer a glimpse of who he is…by the way we reflect him in our day to day lives…
