Unimaginable God

We read through this long winded build up to open up the idea that the world around us is a different place for each of us. It helps us to appreciate our differences as well as our similarities. We can look at the list above and realize that God encompasses all of those things because He is all things. Anything we perceive is created by God. Our ability to perceive those things and subsequently God is determined by the way God uniquely designed each of us. Let’s make the above example a math problem for explanation sake. We listed seven senses where many more have been added by science. Let’s say we are 90% similar in our perception through each sense, which I think is a bit high. With 90% as our guess we multiple 0.9 coherence for each sense (0.9*0.9*0.9*0.9*0.9*0.9*0.9) = 0.4783. This means that with an over estimated similarity and an underestimated number of ways to sense the world, we only have a 47.83% similarity of experiencing this finite world. How different can an infinite God be to each of us? This goes to show why it is so important that we rely on a personal relationship with God through the Holy Spirit and Scripture to know our God. How uniquely He communicates and guides each of us. I feel that it is important that each of us understand this concept and that teaches of the Word instill in their students how to discover God and His work in their individual lives. Rely less on a picture of God and more on the unique relationship He desires with each of His chosen people. Each person is design for a unique purpose, in a unique way. We must open up the eyes of the faithful to the amazing ways that God can work through them. We must not put the unimaginable God in a box the size of our understanding. We must be comfortable with the fact that we can never fully understand God. We understand what He wants us to understand and we know God the way we were meant to know our Heavenly Father.
