01 March: Limiting the Transcendent

When life’s a complex puzzle, and unravelling the meaning for our existence seems impossible, a return to the beginning to retrace our steps, can often help…

In the Beginning was the Word
In the Beginning was The Word

Our modern world is filled with things to believe in. But none explain who made us; what His story is; why we’re here; and what we need to do now to plan for what’s next… well nothing explains better than our Maker’s Guidebook to LIFE. His guidebook is an intimate and personal revelation of the mind of the Creator such that there’s little difference between our Maker and His Word.

To know His Word is to know Him. To believe His Word is to believe Him. To give time to His Word, is to give time to Him and to obey His Word is to obey Him.[a] However, HIStory was never meant to be limited to a surface value read only. To limit the Creator to the first five books, or to limit HIStory (history) to a purely physical/national drama thereafter, would be limiting our transcendent Maker and His transcendent Word. However, in order to release the Creator God from the box we’ve put Him in, today’s chapter takes us to the beginning again.

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

Lord God of our ancestors, You’re the God who’s in heaven yet You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in Your Hand and no one can withstand You. [2 Chronicles 20:6]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

  • The World: Pray for the government of Bangladesh[c]
  • Your Country: God’s Will in National/Global affairs
  • Yourself: Love for fellow believers
  • Your concerns for today
As a father has compassion on his children, so You Lord have compassion on those who fear You. You know how I was formed, You remember that I am dust. [Psalm 103:13-14]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Help me, Lord, to be kind and compassionate to others; forgiving others just as You, in Christ, forgave me. [Ephesians 4:32]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”

I’ve seen what You did in the past, Father God, and how You’ve carried me on eagles’ wings and brought me to Yourself. [Exodus 19:4]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”
