I stood riveted at the edge of the canyon. Its vastness took my breath away. My eyes were on overdrive as I took in the array of colors. Then something happened. My senses to shut down and disappointment set in. What was I looking at? I knew it was deep, everyone said it was, but I had no perception of its depth. I tried to throw a pebble over the edge to give some understanding, but it disappeared.
I reached in my pocket for the postcard I bought. The card displayed the same scene of the Grand Canyon, but it provided no depth perception either. From my perspective, I couldn't understand anything about the canyon. I needed to go deeper into the canyon to fully discover its grandeur.
Many look at God the same way, on the surface, and from a distance. You can’t begin to understand Him from that perspective. There needs to be a deeper relationship. God took the step toward us when He revealed Himself through Jesus Christ, His Son.
Discover the grandeur of God from the right perspective, in relationship with Him.
"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!" (Romans 11:33). The Apostle Paul said all the treasures of this wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Christ Jesus (Colossians 2:3)
