You don't know me. I'm okay with that. This is my search for insignificance.

God Speaks. Really?...I Mean..Wow!
This in itself should be an amazing enough truth for us to grasp. In a college group I lead we discussed whether we thought a deistic approach to life was true to reality. But we never mentioned the possibility that it might be all we deserve.
Consider this: an all-knowing, all-powerful, omni-present being decides to make a world. Even if we forget that this Being we believe in is all-good, He makes us. Should it really be a concern of ours if this Being decides not to talk to us? Do you speak to your paintings, your music, your dinner? We profess to believe in a god that is as far superior to us as we are to anything we create. Why should we ever expect Him to talk to us?
We are presented with a broken world and we say that we didn’t ask for this suffering. Perhaps not, but what a wonderfully me-centered way of looking at things. No wonder the Apostle Paul wrote what he did in Romans 9.
But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? ~Romans 9:20
If we really believe in an all-powerful God, I would suggest we should be less mouthy to Him. But I digress. The point is that God does speak. And before we even consider how or why, the fact alone should cause us to worship.
