Don’t choose the box

God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. I Cor. 12:6

Does an infinite God with infinite resources and infinite creativity manifest the same thing the same way in every individual’s life? In considering the infinite nature of God it is reasonable to assume that even the “width, depth, breadth, height” of God’s love might only express the human limits of experience.  If we consider our own personal experiences and perceptions to be the only possible model for everyone else, it’s likely we are creating a rigid, static box that can only accommodate very limited views and experiences with God. Will He be there with us in the box? Absolutely. But why limit our experiences with God, our potential for growth, and our relationships with others by staying in the box?

Thank you Lord for all that You are in all the people and all the ways I have yet to encounter You.
