Years ago, I took post-graduate courses in Theology to remind me of how ignorant I really am. You see, I love listening to my brilliant professors speak high-tech “theologese”.
But I guess it’s not just for me.
I can’t write straight with big, heavy-duty words, quoting stuff from super-duper theologians.
That work to me is just a little bit less difficult than doing advanced Trigonometry. But I recall one time when I took a shot at it. I started typing on the keyboard, “Some contemporary approaches to spirituality convey paradigmatic alterations from traditional soteriology, rooted in modern biblical hermeneutics…”
Ugh… It was pure torture.
But in all this, I’ve learned something quite glorious:
God is flexible.
He’s made of rubber.
He can stoop down to hallow, lazy brains like mine.
And He can also meet the best and sharpest minds of big-time theologians.
And still win.
He can be wise to the wise.
And simple to the simple.
I’ve realized that God will meet us where we are.
He can be very tender to you if you need an embrace.
He can be firm to you if you need some correction.
He can be terribly awesome when you need a miracle.
He can be painfully quiet when He wants you to trust Him.
He will be what you need him to be.
(Note: Not “want” Him to be. I said, “need” Him to be.)
Question: What do you really need right now?
He knows about it more than you do.
So let Him meet you where you are.
And let Him love you, right there.
May your dreams come true,
