Turkey is known for its fascination with sweets, and one of the popular confections is Turkish delight, also called “lokum,” which translates to “morsel” or “mouthful.” Over time, its name has undergone changes, originally known as “rāḥat al-ḥulqūm,” which means “throat comfort.” This delectable treat is crafted from starch, sugar, and an array of nuts, creating a delightful combination enjoyed by many.

Turkish delight, can be molded into squares or rectangles, offering different dimensions from various perspectives. With each bite, you might experience the taste of ground nuts, pistachios or other kinds of nuts, yet it remains the same, delivering a comforting and delightful experience.

This parallel can be drawn to the multifaceted nature of God, who is free from errors or deception, embodying diverse aspects that inspire awe and provide solace.

The concept of God has been freely revealed to us and is ultimately supposed to evoke a sense of awe and wonder in us. God goes beyond human comprehension and encompasses a higher power or a divine presence that transcends the limits of our understanding.

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made so that people are without excuse." Romans 1:20

Paul asserts that God’s existence and nature are clearly evident through the natural world. The intricate design and order of creation serve as a testimony to His eternal power and divine attributes. People have no excuse for not recognizing God’s presence, as His evidence is compelling and apparent.

"Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! 'Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?' 'Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?' For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen." Romans 11:33-36

Here, Paul marvels at the vastness and incomprehensibility of God’s wisdom and knowledge. His judgments and ways are beyond human understanding and cannot be fully grasped by finite minds. Paul emphasizes that no one can fully comprehend the thoughts and ways of God, and no one can claim to have given anything to God that He owes back. All things originate from God, exist through Him, and ultimately exist for His glory.

The passage highlights three supreme characteristics of God, 1. transcendence of God, 2. His infinite wisdom, and 3. His sovereignty over all creation.

Although observing creation can reveal certain aspects of God, a deeper understanding of His character and plan comes through divine revelation, especially in the Person of Jesus Christ. The context of God and Jesus is inseparable. Thus, while nature points to God, seeking a personal relationship with Him through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and understanding His Word remains crucial.

Our response towards His person, stems from the recognition of the vastness and complexity of the universe he created, as well as a deep reverence for the mysteries of our existence.

We usually attain feelings of reverence, gratitude, and a desire for connection with something beyond our immediate reality. This response is deeply personal and can manifest in different ways for different individuals, reflecting their unique beliefs, cultural backgrounds, and spiritual experiences.

Your perspective of God imparts your entire life. With a wrong view of God, you won’t trust him, you won’t want to know him and you can’t love him.

This is the reason why spiritual Foundations and spiritual encounters are necessary for every believer. They provide a framework for understanding and nurturing one’s spiritual journey, and they can deepen one’s relationship with God

There’s a noticeable shift in societal discourse, with some individuals choosing to distance themselves from conversations centered around God and embracing the concept of having an open mind. This shift reflects a desire to explore various perspectives and ideologies, while rejecting any belief system that may be perceived as restrictive or fostering a mindset of enslavement.

It is essential to recognize that refraining from conversations about God does not negate His existence.

Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Chorinthians 3:17
for he that cometh to God must believe that he is….. Hebrews 11:6b
