On...the Unknown God:


Sometimes, my thoughts are streamlined. Other times, they are nothing less than sporadic--shooting out in so many different directions like unassuming fireworks in a festive event.

This morning, I'm wondering how many of you really know God. Is He someone or something in the distant sun? Swimming in the midst of the galaxies or the milky way? Is He embedded in the minds of fiery radicalists, or is He just a quiet non-speaking entity? Is He all "fire and brimstone," or is He only a characteristic of "earth-and-water"? Who or what is He? Is He real?

In many ways, many seek to worship something. They long for something extraordinary. They thirst for a sign, or anything supernatural...a super man. So they plunge into diverse things, oh...there are so many different options today...you name it! There's something for anyone searching, in fact there are so many options out there such that when you blink your eyes and open them again you can make THE decision: which path to follow. It's that easy. It's public information, you could google it! But I want to introduce you to the One who created the universe and tell you some adjectives that describe Him...

1) When He speaks, His words do exactly what they are spoken for. They don't return to Him undone. He said, "Let there be light," and light has not ceased to exist till this very day. (Genesis chapter 1)

2) He reveals secret things if you let Him into your heart. I keep wondering how Elijah knew God was going to take Him away, and how those 50 prophets came to stand in front of the river Jordan that day because they knew something crazy was about to happen. God revealed it to them...they listened to their hearts, and they heard what God told them (2 Kings 2). He still speaks to our hearts today, if you're listening...(He was called the "Revealer of Secrets" in Daniel chapter 2: 46-48)

3) Healer. Jehovah Raphekah. Even after Lazarus was buried, God raised Him from the dead, opened the eyes of the blind, made the deaf to hear again, stopped the flow of a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years, dried up the deteriorating boils of lepers, identified a betrayer but loved him in spite of, ate with sinners and allowed a prostitute to wash His feet (For these details read the book of John).
.
4) Provider. Jehovah Jireh. Used five loaves of bread to feed 5,000 people. Caused a little oil in a jar not to run out. Told the fishermen to put their nets on the other side of the boat, and their nets almost broke with their new catch. He instructed the Ravens to bring bread and meat to Elijah when there was famine in the land (ravens are birds that have a varied diet, including dead animals...a.k.a. "meat"...so did you figure that the ravens could have eaten the meat themselves, but they delivered it to Elijah?). Oh yes, getting personal, He provided $13,000 for me when I was about to get kicked out of graduate school...I was given only a week to perform some sort of miracle!

5) Timely. Despite His ability to perform miracles in your life, He won't come when it's too early or too late. And He won't do it if it will be disadvantageous to you (even if you cry or wail). He knows those things that are good for you, so why would He respond in an untimely manner? He makes all things beautiful in their own time (Ecclesiastes chapter 3).

6) Teacher. He explains complicated things to the simple-minded. He instructs you just like the manual of a car would, or a cell phone. Step by step, if you follow His lead. He's the good shepherd (Psalms 23).

...and my point is...


I've actually experienced this unknown God and He is as real as it gets...

Patrina said...

The Lord is my Shepherd..I have everything I need. Good words, JayCee...Almighty God is HE. So glad that we are sisters in the family of God. Oh, and great to hear of your TIMELY miracle. Indeed, he is always right on time.

God is always faithful, He's an awesome God.

rethots said...

....shall we describe as 'unknown' whom His attributes are not just (nice) adjectives but, a sure reality?

We know Him but, would rather not do when we do those things our conscience pricks us not to do or we know glaringly are wrong not just not right.

He is most real to us in the littlest of things.

Robyn said...

indeed God's word does not return to Him Void

akaBagucci said...

Now we see but a poor reflection.....then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known

Remi, United Kingdom said...

...and He is my Daddy! He is just too awesome for words. He is the God who sees, who knows, who teaches, who saves...

He sure is unknown to many, however, to know Him we are encouraged to Look at Him in the face, into His eyes and not just in His direction.

Love u loads girl... keep doing what u doing.. much love x

Jhazmyn, He saw you with those tears in your eyes...wow, yes He is these and MORE!!!!!! Hugs!

Jaycee said...

@ Mimi..."heart" u too...

@ Bona...yes, He is TRES amazing...:)

@ Patrina...the Good Shepherd indeed. I was reading Psalms 23 again and I focused on how He "leads us through STILL waters." Sometimes the waters "appear" turbulent to us, but what I learned from that scripture is that it is not about how they appear in our eyes, before God's presence those waters are STILL. Wow.

@ Myne Whitman...yes He is...oh my, congratulations on your published book. It's a GREAT DEED! Wow!

@ Rethots...you just made my heart leap when you said His attributes are not just adjectives but are REAL. I love that! Thanks.

@ Robyn...whenever I think about God's words...in fact...it's just a very powerful concept. Only the One who created the entire universe can be that powerful.

@ Bagucci...brings us to the understanding that in our current human state, we don't know everything...but as time goes on, God reveals secret things to us.

@Remi...I think it is a huge priviledge to experience God. Many are searching and they haven't experienced Him yet. But they will...if they are reading this.

Kafo said...

too true
stay beautiful
please

Remi, United Kingdom said...

Amen girl, Amen... ahhhh **sigh** thanks for the shout out on the right hand side of ur blog..

and I wish you all the best of what God has in store for you when he perfects that area of ur life.. u deserve it... much love x

Tricia said...

Yes WoW! GOOD insight! That's why He's my Shepherd! HE IS more than I ever knew or thot I needed!

There is nothing like knowing and experiencing God for one's self. He is all those things you described and even much more. I just loved the gentle reminder of who He is and what He can do.
