GOD IS TRANSCENDENT – GOD IS FAR BEYOND & ABOVE YOU

SCRIPTURES: 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! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseller? 35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen.    Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts

THOUGHTS: TRANSCENDENCE is the truth that the nature of LORD God’s being, wisdom, knowledge and power lies beyond the material universe and beyond all known physical laws and human understanding. The fact that the LORD God TRANSCENDS the material universe as well as what is knowable to you as a human being, makes Him beyond your ability to grasp Him in His entirety. What is known of Him is what He has revealed in the Holy Bible and what He may reveal you personally. An example of Divine TRANSCENDENCE displayed is when God does a miracle that goes beyond the natural order of things. Acts such as Creation, the Burning Bush, the feeding the multitudes in the wilderness, the crossings of the Red Sea and the River Jordan, healing the sick or raising the dead and the manifold Messianic Prophecies are evidences of His TRANSCENDENCE. This means that you can be assured that the God who created everything is above it all yet is involved in it all and is concerned about each aspect of your life. It also means that God will make good on His promise that one day He will have a reckoning for each and every person that lived. This behooves you to accept His Son Jesus Christ as your Savior, commit your life to Him and live a surrendered life so that your accounts are clear with God.

PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father and TRANSCENDENT GOD: I recognize that You are the Creator and the Sustainer of the universe and of my life. I also know that although You are TRANSCENDENT and far above me in person and in power, that You chose to care about me and care for me. I thank You that although You are THE TRANSCENDENT GOD [GOD IS FAR BEYOND & ABOVE ME] that You are also GOD THAT IS IMMANENT [GOD THAT IS NEAR AT HAND].  I thank You for this in Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES: 2 Chronicles 2:6 But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?

Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Isaiah 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 

Isaiah 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place , with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
