Signs of the Times

The sign to the right is one I see when I stop at Sam’s to purchase gasoline.  Every time I see it,  I think of the way it is worded.  Evidently the pumps have the ability to see.  Look at the directive words: stay outside of the vehicle in view of fueling nozzle.

The ability to see and comprehend were synonomous with Sam Walton.  While he was creating his empire,  his competitors thought the Wizard of Walmart was all seeing and all knowing.  What was hyperbole concerning Sam, is an accurate depiction of God.

There are three terms that define God, and each begins with the prefix omni.  They are:  Omnipotence:  God is all powerful;  Omniscience:  God is all knowing; and,  Omnipresence: God is fully present everywhere at the same time.

These characteristics of God are comforting to me.  They tell me that God has all power, all knowledge, and He is always present.

Let me pose a question about our never absent God:  Has it ever occured to you that nothing has ever occured to God?  He is aware of all things; comprehends all things; and, He never has a need to acquire new knowledge.

There are those among the naysayers who would try to refute my beliefs with a question:  What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object?  While they suppose this hypothetical event would limit God, their argument collapses on itself.

If an irresistible force ever met an immovable object and the object moved, it would not be immovable.  On the other hand, if the object did not move, the force would not be irresistible.

The more I come to know God, the more I find myself agreeing with MosesOur God is awesome!  With this attribute in mind, I encourage you to take a moment to listen to this song:  Our God is an Awesome God.

This song always blesses me with thoughts worth thinking.
