For the LORD of hosts has planned, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back? (Isaiah 14:27 NRSV)
Ninety-eight per cent of the American people, according to most polls, say that they believe in God. That can mean everything or that can mean nothing. For many people, that belief is a vague notion about "Someone in the great Somewhere" (to quote a popular religious song of some years ago). For a lot of people God is nothing more than a vast oblong blur. C.S. Lewis once wrote of a girl he knew who said that the word, God, reminded her of a "vast tapioca pudding." The only problem was that she hated tapioca pudding!
It makes a tremendous difference what sort of God we believe in. In these days when religious fanatics threaten the world, we have come to realize, if we didn't know it before, that belief in God is not enough. The question is: what sort of God do we believe in?
Once again we are reminded that our beginning place is at the feet of Jesus.
Loving God, Yes, I believe in you and in your power to make me a great servant to your holy plan. Amen.
