Daily Words of God | "God Himself, the Unique VIII" | Excerpt 178
God is not just the God of His chosen people. You currently follow God, and He is your God, but for those outside of the people who follow God, is God their God? Is God the God of all people outside of those who follow Him? (Yes.) Then is God the God of all things? (Yes.) Then does God do His work and perform His actions merely on those who follow Him? (No.) Its scope is the entire universe. From the small perspective, its scope is all of mankind and among all things. From the big perspective, it’s the entire universe. So we can say God does His work and performs His actions among all mankind. This is sufficient to let people know all about God Himself. If you want to know God and truly get to know and understand Him, then don’t just be restricted to the three stages of God’s work, and don’t just be restricted to the stories of the work God had once performed. If you try to know Him that way, then you are confining God to a certain limit. You’re seeing God as too insignificant. What influences would such consequences bring to you? You would never be able to know God’s wondrousness and supremacy, and you would never be able to know God’s power and omnipotence and the scope of His authority. Such an understanding would influence your ability to accept the truth that God is the Ruler of all things, as well as your knowledge of God’s true identity and status. In other words, if your understanding of God is limited in scope, what you can receive is also limited. That is why you must expand the scope and open your horizons. Whether it is the scope of God’s work, God’s management, and God’s rule, or all things ruled over and managed by God, you should get to know it all and get to know God’s actions therein. Through such a way of understanding, you will unconsciously feel that God is ruling over, managing and supplying all things among them. At the same time, you will also truly feel that you are a part of all things and a member of all things. As God supplies all things, you also accept God’s rule and supply. This is a fact no one can deny. All things are subject to their own laws, which is under God’s rule, and all things have their own rule of survival, which is also under God’s rule, while mankind’s fate and what they need are also closely related to God’s rule and His supply. That is why, under God’s dominion and rule, mankind and all things are interconnected, interdependent, and interwoven. This is the purpose and value of God’s creation of all things.
