"If I Were God"


When will we learn that God knows more than we do...

"If I were God I’d have revealed myself a better way than through the Bible.”

"If I were God I wouldn’t have created a hell.”

If I were God I wouldn’t allow suffering in the world.” 

I’ve heard these statements and others like them. And I'm ashamed to say I've said similar things myself.

We need to think about what we are saying when we make these statements:
  • Do we think we see the big picture like God sees it? 
  • Do we think God needs our advice? 
  • Do we really think we’d make a better god than God?
“Oh, what a wonderful God we have! How great are his riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his methods! For who can know what the Lord is thinking? Who knows enough to be his counselor?” Romans 11:33-35 (NLT)

Incredibly, God forgives us despite our arrogance. If we were God, we probably wouldn't do that.

Because our God is infinite, we will never fully understand His ways (Isaiah 55:9). But we can rest in full assurance that He does what is right because He is all-knowing, all-wise, all-loving, and 100% good! (Psalm 103:11; Psalm 103:17; Psalm 118:79; James 1:17).
