God is more

i may be more. (see last week’s post.) but God is so much more.

God is more than my iPhone.
He is more than my iPad.
He is more than Steve Jobs.

He is more than a brilliant actor.
or media-obsessed celebrity.
He is more than a great song.
He is more than a great voice.

He is more than a clever thought.
He is more than a critical observation.
He is more than a legal policy.
He is more than a word.

He is the Word.

He is more than my creativity.
He is more than cleverness or wit.

He is more than me.
He is more than my wife, my sons, my family.
He is more than my closest friends.

He simply is.

He is more than the most amazing sunrise.
or sunset.
He is more than the gentleness of the waves or the crushing blows of a tsunami.
He is more than the breeze or the tornado.
He is more than mist or the pouring rain.

He is more than the richest, most powerful.
He is more than the poorest, most downtrodden, forgotten one.
He is more than a cancer.
He is more than the most physically fit person.

God is so much more than anything.
anyone.
no matter what we chase.
what we dream about.
what we lord over others.
what we have lorded over us.

God is more.
more than our brokenness, our perceived perfection.
God is more.

more than me. more than you.

God is more.

(for a glimpse into how much more, read Job 38–41.)
