Have you ever thought about the fact that if God really IS God what that means? Ps 115:3 states “our God is in heaven, He does what pleases Him.” Daniel 4:35 declares, “all the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as He pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back His hand or say to Him: ‘What have You done?'”
In other words God can do what He wants, when He wants, to whom He wants, and in the way He wants. God answers to no one. God alone is the standard by which God is judged. God’s righteousness, holiness, goodness do not depend on what I think, see, feel, or believe. They just are bc He is. He is God and therefore, He owes me nothing, not an explanation, not life, health, security, comfort, love, salvation…. He is God.
To live anything less than a life fully, completely, 150% devoted to Him is a sin bc He deserves it all, and He is not satisfied with less. God knows who and what He is. He knows what He deserves and He will not lesson His standards. God is not falsely humble or modest. He is not up in heaven hoping that we will join His cause, or do it His way. He is not worried that His plan may not come to pass or that too many people will disagree with Him. God is not worried about looking foolish or how He’s going to explain this catastrophe away. Looking cool and being the “in” thing isn’t on God’s agenda. He does not have to win an election or make sure He is popular. All the world can cry foul against God and still He would be good, faithful, just and true bc He is God.
At least 5 times in Scripture the idea is stated that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” One time Scripture even says that the fear of the Lord is the key to a treasure. The fear of God is not a popular idea outside of Scripture but it is Biblical. If you want to be God’s friend, first and foremost you must begin to know the One before Whom you stand. This is God. We do not make Him right or make Him worthy of worship – He just is. He is God.
