I read something the other day where someone eluded to God being a “she”. In my opinion, God is NOT a “she”. To me God is a “he”. He is the great I AM. He is Yahweh. He is Jehovah-jireh. He is the Lord God Almighty who is worthy to be praised.
The ultimate truth comes from biblical truth. Not from deciding that you think that He is a “she”. The Bible tells us that God is a “he”. Period.
Seeing God referred to that way made me thing about where a lot of people in the world get their truths from. The majority get it from other human beings and their interpretation on life. Talking about how the universe will take care of you. How that karma will see that the wrong against you is righted, and so on. Only God takes care of you – believer or non-believer. He created the universe to be a marvellous and monstrous thing, not a being. Only God should see that a wrong is righted. Karma refers to balance and fairness being achieved. Only God knows true balance and fairness as he knows the human heart, and only knows what is best where retribution is concerned.
As a parent who looks out for her little girl, I know that God is a father who looks after His children … all of them. He sees that our lives are purposeful, whether that be enabling us to endure hardships to build character and learn wisdom, or to prosper us for the betterment of His kingdom. Everything is eternity focussed.
I honestly don’t know how I would be able to live my life if I were not a Christian. I think back to the time when, while being a Christian, I walked off the narrow path and tried it alone. While I didn’t refer to God as a girl or thought that the universe would take care of me, I did foster worldly views on a lot of things. I now see the error of my ways, and I now see the hope that comes from loving God and living for Him.
To me the Christian walk is simple, while complex, but it is the only way to live. While I am in the world, I strongly feel that I am not of the world. That makes loving God even more special.
As my little girl said last night as she looked up to heaven, “Dad…” I too look up to heaven and call Him Dad.
