Separate from His Creation
He stirs up the sea with His power, and by His understanding He breaks up the storm. . . . Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways.
>Job 26:12, 14, nkjv
God Himself is not in a sunset or in an act of human compassion any more than an artist is in his painting or a musician is in his music. You and I may see reflections of the artist’s or musician’s personality in his work, but the person himself is separate from it. Likewise, you may see the reflection of God’s personality in a sunset or in an act of compassion, but He Himself is not in either one. He is separate from His Creation. What an important truth! This means:
When something is wrong, He can right it.
When something is broken, He can mend it.
When something is lost, He can find it.
When something doesn’t work, He can fix it.
When something is hurt, He can heal it.
My failures, sins, mistakes, and shortcomings—and yours—in no way dilute or deplete or weaken or harm God!
