“I have no name,” God said to Moses. “I am Yahweh.”
It’s an interesting term that means, “I am who I am” or “I am the One who creates”
One of the Ten Commandments stated that the people should have no artificial image made of God. God cannot be defined by any sculpture or picture. God does not want to be associated with any one animal or rock or plant.
God is too vast to be seen or defined. To try to make an image of God is to limit him… or her… or whatever. You can’t even find a pronoun to refer to God.
God is known by what he does. Observe events as they occur and you see God working. Say a prayer, then look around, and you see God’s answer. Look at anything that exists and you see the creativity of God.
According to scripture, God was there when there was nothing. He was there when everything began, he will be there after it all ends, and he is here now.
Most of us don’t like this concept of God. We keep looking for a God we can contain because at least then he would make sense, and then perhaps we could control him.
But I prefer God to be too big for me to comprehend. Why would I be comforted by anything less?
