During my near death experience, I was allowed to witness a visit that I had with God prior to my life on earth. As a result, I know and understand God in ways that few mortals do. Most importantly, I know that God is perfect. We, as mortals, talk about God being perfect but our mortal limitations make it almost impossible to relate to what perfect really is.
In God’s case, perfection is not dependent on our perspective. God’s perfection is whole and complete. There is nothing that God does not know. There is no talent, ability, or knowledge that He is lacking. He is not perfect compared to __________ (you fill in the blank). He is the completely and utterly and totally perfect.
I often see man try to humanize God and instill in Him weaknesses and faults. It may make someone feel better (I doubt it?) but that does not change God. God is unchanging and He does not waver. God’s laws do not change, His purposes do not change, and neither does His love.
The God I have come to know, as a result of my near death experience, is intent on helping us learn, loves nothing more than to be able to bless us, is our most ardent fan and supporter and loves us perfectly.
If there is one lesson that I have learned as a result of all of my experiences, it is that we can come to know and understand God most easily through our hearts. It is within our hearts that we feel Him and it is within our hearts that we are taught all truth – including all truth about God.
Today I would like to share a story from the following website: http://godrestorestestimonials.weebly.com/short-inspirational-stories.html#perfect
I hope you enjoy the story about the King!
A king who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in all circumstances, said: “My king, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes!”
One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his majesty losing a finger.
Furious and without showing his gratitude for being saved, the nobleman said “Is God good? If He was good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger.” The slave replied: “My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and he knows “why” of all these things. What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!” Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave.
Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who made human sacrifices. In the altar, ready to sacrifice the nobleman, the savages found that the victim had not one of his fingers, so he was released. According to them, it was not so complete to be offered to the gods.
Upon his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his slave that he received very affectionately. “My dear, God was really good to me! I was almost killed by the wild men, but for lack of a single finger, I was let go! But I have a question: if God is so good, why did he allow me to put you in jail?”
The slave replied: ”My King, if I had gone with you in this hunt, I would have been sacrificed for you, because I have no missing finger, therefore, remember everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong.”
Thank you for letting me share my knowledge of God with you today. May God’s blessings be yours and may you feel His perfect love for you!
