God in a box

Have you ever put God in a box? Of course you have. We all have at some time or another.

Why do we do that? We do it for several foolish reasons.

First and most commonly we put God in a box because we think we can do as good a job as good or better than God can. On a stupid scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the most stupid, this is a 12. No one on the planet can do a better job at anything as Almighty God.

Another reason we put God in a box at times is we don’t think God wants to be bothered with our measly little life issues because he’s too busy helping other folks with much more important issues. We think He doesn’ have time or can’t be bothered with our piddley little trivial unimportant stuff. This reasoning on a scale of 1 to 10 is also a 12.

You’ll likely find their God in a box in the corner of the garage under a box of old clothes you’ve been needed to take to Goodwill for months.

All these folks know nothing about the sovereignty of Almighty God. If they knew one iota of it they would acknowledge that “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. Colossians 3:16 and admit that “our help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:2

God made everything, even the air we breathe. He controls everything. He will not live in a box. His sovereignty means God is every place at once. And he is in charge of anything and everything that happens at any give moment on this planet No boxes for God.
