Looking At God

It Is Written, Proverbs 8:17, I love those who love me, and those who seek Me diligently will find Me.
The majority of people on Earth, have probably heard about Jesus and what He did. The Bible makes it plain. The question is, how many believe it?
I have thought about that question for a long time with no success. In the last couple of days, I feel that I have received a large part of the answer. I am sure there are many other theories, but I will give you mine to think about.
In the first place, people all over the world have been conditioned to not believing. The world is full of scams, and people that lie, cheat, and steal. They do these things as a way of life, and it affects many people. You see very little love in the world, and plenty of violence and hate, so that causes many people to question even the existence of God.
When you read about Jesus and what He did for us, and how He lived, it sounds good, and many of us try to believe. We know of Jesus suffering, but at the same time we don't know. I will explain.
We as humans need a frame of reference in order to judge something. If we see a picture of something standing by itself, we cannot figure out how large or how small it is. We need something to compare it to.
If you have never experienced something, how would you know how good or bad it is? Is it pleasure or pain? Jesus came to earth as a man, to experience what we experience. He did not expect us to do what He couldn't do. It was just as difficult for Him to love, as it is for us. As God, He knew man needed a frame of reference, so He became a man.
Just to give you a brief idea of what I am talking about as far as the pain Jesus suffered, picture this. Have you ever stuck a pin in your finger by accident or got a shot from the doctor? How did it feel? Now picture a spike probably 100 times bigger being hammered through your hand. That my friend would probably be the least of the pain Jesus suffered.
When we think about God and His love and power, we must forget what we see and work on seeing everything as Jesus saw it. We have to throw out our preconceived ideas about everything.
It would probably be a good idea to read1 Corinthians chapter 13. Read it over and over until it gets into your heart. Jesus lived it. It's a start for us.
Expand your faith, by ignoring the limits your brain puts on something. See it God's way. When Jesus says, ask and you shall receive, or, all things are possible to him who believes, don't think about it, just do it.
It isn't as hard as it sounds. Let your brain rest, and your heart do the believing. It may take time, but so what. When you compare your life to eternity, life becomes a speck of sand in billions of worlds.
When you really stretch your faith, you open the door to limitless blessings, and you realize that you really are a child of God. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus loves You
Prayer Of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
Amen
