Once Blind

In recent times, I have realized just how little there is to know about the eternal, omnipotent, omniscient, and infinite nature of our G-d. There have been so many questions going through my mind as I am given brief stints of a look into His character. Most of the time, I am left with many more questions than I had to start with. However, the more question marks that cover my page, the more I realize just how much my life must reflect devotion to Him.

Sure, it’s 1:44am and I’m having a hard time concentrating. But I can tell you that my confidence in G-d has increased so much over the past few weeks. It’s hard to explain but my curiosity in Him has been turning into an obsession and sense of overwhelming awe as I realize just how little I understand.

The book “The Knowledge of the Holy” by A.W. Tozer has been very eye-opening for me. What I am struggling to understand is the infinitude of Him. Tozer makes a very good point in saying we cannot liken G-d to anything we know, because that would be comparing Him to His creation; thus taking away from His infinitude and power. Very good point.

Once was blind. Now I see. Now I see how blind I really am.

It’s as if we have opened our eyes the night sky; we can see many great works of His power, attributes, and character. But even if we were to pursue one of the distant stars, we would never reach it in the course of our lifetime. How incredible.
