I believe in a God that I cannot see. My God is a spirit and when I worship Him, I worship Him in spirit and in truth. My God is not restricted to one place, or in a particular country, or in a village under a tree. Everyone has equal access to God wherever we are located, and at any time we choose.
The only true God is not made of stone and clay by any human hands. He’s not a statue where people bow down and worship. He doesn’t need to be fed food, alcohol etc as other deities made by human hands.
Now, that’s a very huge deal for me.
Why is it a huge deal for me to serve an invisible God? God being a spirit means that wherever I go, God goes with me. Nobody knows He’s walking and talking with me – He’s invisible and invincible. I don’t have to feed or cater to the needs of the God I serve. I don’t have to wear hidden symbols or chant prayers to my God. I simply speak with God just as I would to my friend.
God being invisble allows me to tell Him all my deepest fears and concerns throughout the day. He’s my constant companion day and night, night and day. It’s simply priceless to have a God who goes everywhere with me, and sees and knows everything I do.
All of His other traits and qualities makes it more mysterious to others who look on at my life and wonder how I made it…. all because He’s invisible and He’s indispensable.
“God is spirit [the Source of life, yet invisible to mankind], and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” JOHN 4:24 AMP
The invisible presence of God is very evident in my life. He’s my Source of Life. I sense His presence because I believe in Him….I can have a more intimate relationship with Him because He sees my heart, and knows my thoughts very well.
If perchance the rulers of this world decides that there will be no more formal meetings of churches, or we have to stop all forms of prayers, if by chance the whole world become a communist world – here’s the surprise –
I have my God that’s invisible living in me, moving right alongside me, talking to me, giving me directions and strategically placing me under His wings where I feel safe. I can still talk to my God without closing my eyes or falling prostrate at His feet.
Guess what? I’m winning all around. This is becoming increasingly exciting to me as I write. I’m winning all the way with my Invisble Life Partner.
God is a Spirit. He’s not flesh, nor stone. He’s a spirit. And, that’s a huge deal to me.
Below is an account of Jacob wrestling with an invisible God:
“So Jacob was left alone, and a Man [came and] wrestled with him until daybreak.
Then He said, “Let Me go, for day is breaking.”
But Jacob said, “I will not let You go unless You declare a blessing on me.”
And He said, “Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed.”
GENESIS 32:24, 26, 28 AMP
In Life’s struggles you can hear God’s voice. I worship a God that I cannot see and I’m okay with that. He’s got to be invisible because He fights my battles with the forces that come against me. It makes me look good…but it’s really all His doings.
For the unbelieving – seeing is not believing. If they can’t see – they do not believe. To the unbelievers, it’s not a lack of evidence, but it’s the hardening heart that puts ‘the final nail in the coffin’ concerning the existence of God.
Our FAITH in God is dependent on the reading and hearing of the Word of God, and NOT our perceptions and questions about God.
