Arranging God’s Anatomy

Arranging God's Anatomy

For a change in content, how about a review of anatomy to see how the Holy Author of Scripture pictures God in human form, called anthropomorphism, to help us visualize Him.

Mind–Jer 32:35 “My people built high places to sacrifice their children. A detestable thing that never entered my mind.” God’s pure, innocence

Face– Ps 105:4 “Seek his face always.” God’s close companionship

Voice–Ps 29:4 “The voice of the Lord is majestic.” God’s lofty magnificence

Heart–I Sam 2:35 “I will do according to what is in my heart.” God’s autonomy

Shoulder–Deut 33:12 “The one the Lord loves rests on his shoulders.” God’s tender care

Back–Isa 38:17 “You have put all my sins behind your back.” God’s eternal forgetfulness

Eyes–2 Chron 16:9 “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.” God’s reassuring energy

Arm–Isa 50:2 “Was my arm too short to ransom you?” God’s available resources

Hands–Ps 31:5 “Into your hands I commit my spirit.” God’s firm grip

Ears–Ps 31:2 “Turn your ear to me, quickly rescue me.” God’s immediate help

Feet–Nahum1:3 “The clouds are the dust of his feet” God’s poetry

Reviewing God’s anatomy definitely reaffirms the variety of his eternal promises and commitments to his sons and daughters. Enjoy the anatomy lesson.

The next Umbilical will explore God’s emotional disposition.

  1. Wow!! That is definitely “eye-catching” and thought-provoking. And how personal and close He is to us. The scriptures you chose and the descriptive words are a perfect blend of His heavenly and earthly reality. God bless you Leon, love and prayers, Janey
