We talk about knowing God and knowing Jesus.  This is good, but when you know someone completely, there is a sense in that you understand everything about them.  This will never totally happen in terms of our relationship with God, at least not on this earth.

Paul wrote in 1 Cor 13 "now I see in part and I know in part, but the day is coming when I will know fully, as I am fully known" [JB paraphrase]

So there will always be this sense of "unknowing."  A sense that we are a part of something amazing, awe inspiring and incredible.  If you have ever stood at the beach or the grand canyon and the sight took your breath away, this is what I am referring to.  Imagine your relationship with God as something that totally takes your breath away.

He is so amazing, so big, so incredible.  We don't control him.  We don't insist that he fits into this size of a box.  We simply stand in awe and experience the amazing joy of being loved by that which is higher and greater than we are.  This is what praise is all about- recognizing that God is big, incredible and beyond the grip of my broken humanness.

Take in a deep breath of the amazing God and have a wonderful day.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
