Psalms 105:7-8

"He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations."
Psalms 105:7-8

You know, sometimes I think that we personalize God too much.  Not that we shouldn't personalize him at all... I think we need to be able to relate to him, and talk to him, and understand him as much as possible... but sometimes we go too far trying to relate to God and we attribute weaknesses to him, similar to the ones we have.  It is an easy thing to do... we try to understand everything in some way in the same context we understand ourselves.  I don't think that we understand ourselves very well most of the time, but it is the only way that we have of seeing.  As we understand ourselves more, then we are able to incorporate more things into our reality.  The thing is, we won't be able to understand God fully until we ourselves are perfect. :)  And, I don't know about you, but for me that is going to take a long, long time. :)  God is who we are, but without the veil covering our memories... with a perfect body that can never die, without any health problems... who can control his actions and thoughts perfectly, who uses 100% of his brain, who is more genius than any genius you can imagine... who can do any sport better than the Guinness record holder... you name it, God can do it. :)  Instead of assuming that he's made a mistake in our case, or that we're smarter than his stupid rules, maybe, just maybe, we should stop and try to figure out why he made the rule, or why our case is the way it is.  There is always a reason... whether we can see it or not, God knows what he is doing, and he's doing it perfectly.  We just have to work on getting to the point where we can understand the explanation.
