GOD IS GOD!
There are just no words to describe GOD! We read the Scriptures to see what we need to do to please GOD and be in HIS favor. But the same scriptures tell us there is not enough goodness in any of us to earn this Favor. We don't understand why GOD just doesn't make HIMSELF as real to us as the Bible says HE can! The harder we try, the farther we get away from GOD; and the things we do in GOD'S name, really in fact, hurt GOD'S people. Even Saul (later Paul) was GIVEN FAVOR in-spite of persecuting GOD'S people. Perhaps, actually being brought to GOD'S FAVOR, sitting on HIS lap in HIS indescribable PRESENCE, comes when our "...sacrifices of GOD are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart..." (Psalm 51:17). The most distant we are from GOD is when we are feeling a "little" or "a lot" righteous for something we have done. We have to give up what we cherish most to be in HIS presence, GIVE UP OURSELVES! When there is nothing left of us, is when there is ALL of HIM in us! Yes, there are no words to describe GOD; GOD IS GOD!
