The LORD Also Has Sense Organs!

The LORD Also Has Sense Organs!

"And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done."
Genesis 8:21

The scripture above is rich with many insights into the nature of our God. Indeed, there is no searching of His understanding (Isaiah 40:28). Nobody can ever really fully understand or comprehend God. Nevertheless, the Lord doesn’t want us to stop trying or seeking to know and draw close to Him all the more. This can only be done by searching the scriptures (John 5:39). From the scripture at beginning of this passage, we learn that the Lord has a nose hence His ability to smell the sweet savour of the burnt offering offered up unto Him. We also learn that He has a heart with which He makes and takes decisions. Should we be surprised? No! The Bible meant it in Genesis when it said we were created in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27). How magnanimous and loving the Father is to us that He should create us in His own image and share some of His organs with us! He has eyes (2 Chronicles 16:9, Proverbs 5:21). He has a mouth (2 Chronicles 36:12, Psalm 138:4). He has a nose (Isaiah 65:5). He has ears (Numbers 11:18, Ezekiel 8:18). The only parts we have that the Lord may not have must definitely be those parts that make us human like the reproductive organs, the excretory organs etc. Also, there are those parts which the Lord has which we do not have as human beings. We’ll have to see Him to confirm what they are. Who are we that the Lord is mindful of us? The Almighty God so loves us that He decides to break Himself down to a level we can comprehend. Indeed, all things were created for His pleasure. Otherwise, how can we fathom that the Lord will be moved so much by the sweet savour of a burnt offering that He decides He’ll neither curse the ground any more for man’s sake nor smite anymore every thing living. Even then, who entered into the Lord’s heart to know what He had decided to do to men. This goes to show that the Word of the Lord was not merely written by men but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Moses who wrote the book of Genesis wasn’t born when the event happened. It can only be God who revealed the thought of His heart at that time to him. What a loving Father we have!
