How do you see God? Nothing in all your life will impact your life more than how you see God. We tend to think of God as good and powerful, but no matter how great our view of God is, we tend to reduce Him to something we can see in measurable and controllable terms. What we truly need to see is God as He has revealed Himself to us. God shows us Himself in Christ, in crisis, and even in creation.
Around our family, we call these “God-sightings.” When you notice a beautiful rainbow in the sky or the simplest flower starting to bloom – whatever evidence of God’s creativity and control, stop and praise God for how He has revealed Himself to you.
There is a growing trend among Christians to marry evolution with creationism. It may seem like an innocent compromise, but besides the egregious sin of changing the Word of God, any adherence to evolution discounts God’s work in creation, God’s involvement in His creation, and God’s authority over all creation. Evolution causes tragic misconceptions about God.
Maybe you have already made up your mind about God. You may think of God as small, limited. Misconceptions about God create our biggest barriers with God.
I believe God says what He means and means what He says. “The Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and everything in them in six days…” (Ex 20:11). God has always been at work. God is always at work. And His work is good. Can you see it? Gaining Momentum in your spiritual life begins by Seeing God right in front of you.
The presence of God is everywhere! Its called General (or Natural) Revelation because it is available to everyone, everywhere. “His invisible attributes, that is, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what he has made. As a result, people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
