God created the heavens, the earth, the sea, and all that is in them. Further, He gave humanity the supreme position in this physical creation. There is, however, a spiritual (that is, invisible) dimension to creation as well. God dwells in this invisible dimension to rule over all His creation through mankind. Summing up, we rule the world and He rules us. That’s not too much for a Creator to ask, is it? Alas, many people think God is asking too much and they spend their lives here ignoring Him.
While it is possible to ignore God and resist a personal relationship with Him, it is impossible to ignore His rule over creation. The seasons, the tides, the solar and lunar cycles – all these things happen without respect to human wishes. Moreover, the consequences of human actions – both good and evil – are pervasive. God is the one who brings about these consequences. We may sow the seeds of thoughts, words, and deeds, but it is God who brings their harvest to us. We can even resist acknowledging that He controls these things, but that doesn’t eliminate, or even reduce, His control of them. The good news of Jesus Christ as made known through the Bible – and the reason He was willing to suffer an ignominious death on the cross – is that God is willing to forgive our previous resistance to His rule and accept us now as beloved children.
As a loving Father, God wants to explain to you how His world works. He wants to be your Deliverer and not just your Judge. He wants to show you the way in which you should live so as to gain the greatest satisfaction in life. This satisfaction is not one of material riches, earthly glory, or worldly pleasures. Instead, it is the satisfaction of knowing you have loved Him above all, and your neighbor as yourself. Do you think Jesus was satisfied with the outcome of His life? Surely He was. He wants you to know that same satisfaction.
Life on earth is just the beginning of your relationship with God. He wants to be your Father through all eternity. Stop resisting. Turn to Him who is invisible. Trust that He sees you and cares for you. Let Him forgive your sin and heal your conscience. Then, through your conscience, serve Him in all that you think, say, and do. Practice this way and He will become more and more real to you.
Can you relate to an invisible God? Of course you can – through the part of you that is invisible to the rest of us. Don’t look to anyone else to be a mediator between you and your Creator. You don’t need a minister, a church, a synagogue, an imam, or even a religion. Just relate to your Creator, Jesus. He never intended that you should live lonely. He intended you to enjoy a loving relationship with Him, a relationship with intimacies to which no one else is privy.
