I’d like to read to you today from Max Lucado’s new book: “Before Amen.” On page 23, these are the words he says:
“Most people suffer from small thoughts about God. In an effort to see Him as our friend, we’ve lost His immensity. In our desire to understand Him, we sought to contain Him. The God of the Bible cannot be contained! He brought order to chaos and created creation. With a word He called Adam out of dust and Eve out of a bone. He consulted no committee; He sought no counsel. He has no peer. ‘I am God; there is no other. I am God; there is none like Me.’
The greatest kings have surrendered their crowns. Alexander the Great is a mound of dust in the tomb. The queen of England is called “her majesty,” yet she must eat and bathe and rest. The true majesty, on the other hand, is never hungry. He never sleeps. He has never needed attention or assistants.”
It’s time to pray.
