The Look of God

I know God is God, but we don’t really know what God looks like but because Jesus walked this earth we only think of God in physical form. We have the image of Him sitting on His throne in heaven, so that gives us some physical features. We imagine Him to have arms and hands as we read in Isaiah 41:10 ‘I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.’ And again ‘If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your right hand will guide me.’ In times of trouble we imagine God placing His arms around us and protecting us. He carries us on His shoulders.

I think heaven is going to be a wonderful surprise.Our finite minds and even the reading of the Book of Revelation make us ill-prepared for what we will find. But I believe it will be surprise upon wonderful surprise. We cannot grasp the beginning of it and we’re not just visiting, we’ll be there for ever and ever. Something beyond our comprehension.
