In Genesis 1:27, we are told that God made man special. He made us in His own image. There is debate, of course, of what exactly this means, but we know that it means we are different than anything else in creation. The world, the animals, the birds and the fish are all called "good" but only man is called "very good" because we alone are made in the very image of God.
And yet, it seems to me, that since that moment we have attempted to return the favor. We seek to remake God in our own image. We of course don't have the power to change the actual nature of God; but we pretend that we do. We pretend that God is like us.
We like to think that God thinks like us, acts like us, loves like us and even hates like us. We pretend that God hates the people we hate and loves the people we love. We pretend that God cares about what we care about and only those things.
We do not control God any more than we control a hurricane. We cannot make God any more than we can make a mountain. God is God. He is who He is. He does not change. His goodness cannot be undone by our will or desires. Our fallen nature does not tarnish Him.
So let us remember our place. He is on the throne; and we are not. We are made in His image, not He in ours. We seek to be like Him, not the other way around. God is God and God is good. Let us worship Him accordingly.
