If God Were Human

Hello!

This week has been all over the place with prayer. But there’s one thing in particular that I want to focus on.

A little bit of background first, though.

After I returned from SEEK, I fell back into the sins that I had been dealing with for months during 2018. And in order for this post to make sense, I’ll tell you this: the sins I had been dealing with had been concerning my body and how I viewed it and others.

During Wednesday’s prayer, the following thought came to mind:

How would you feel if someone misused something of yours? Probably defensive/protective/not that great. Well, that’s how God feels when you [name of sin here].

It was then that a realization came to me.

Our emotions aren’t too different from God’s.

We get defensive. We get protective. We don’t like when someone misuses or abuses something of ours. And God is the same way. He doesn’t like when we misuse or abuse what He intended to be good.

And I think this can apply to any sin. Sinning is going against what God intended to be good. So, God doesn’t just dislike when misuse our bodies like I had been doing. He doesn’t like when we go against what He knows to be good.

And I think this makes God more relatable.

This shows us that God isn’t some far off God that doesn’t care about our personal life. This shows us that God feels the same things we do.

In fact, this reminds us that we were created in God’s image. And having at least this in common with God proves that He can be approached and we can have a relationship with Him.

Until next time!
