He is God.
Also, as I've been reading through Romans, I was given a key verse- it's kinda the summation of the first 11 chapters. The first 11 go through theology, while chapters 12-16 are the application of that theology. Romans 11:36 gives a perfect answer to the question "WHY??"
"For from Him, and through Him, and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen."
Amen. I mean, wow. It's so true. Everything is for the glory of the Lord. Everything is from the glory of the Lord. Everything is His- so I need to make sure I am reflecting that in everything.
It's beautiful. And challenging. More like beautifully challenging. I've had it written on my wrist for the past few days to remind me.
My God? He's gloriously incredible.
