Dont Confuse God with the Wizard of Oz

Forget Titanic and Avatar or even The Little House of Horrors. The best all time movie remains The Wizard of Oz.

You know the story. Poor Dorothy is whirled away by a cyclone only to land in the Land of Oz. Among other things, Dorothy encounters three misfits, the brainless Scarecrow, the heartless Tin Man and the cowardly Lion. Together they follow the Yellow Brick Road to find the terrible Wizard.

They enter the Castle of the Wizard in total fear. They tremble at the voice of the mighty ruler of Oz. Then they find that it is all a facade. The Wizard is a less than omnipotent man. But he is able to show each of the four pilgrims that they already possess what they wanted most.

Our loving God can do all of this, of course. Through His Son, He has given us the Gift of the Holy Spirit. And through the Spirit He provides the heart, the courage and the wisdom we need to be able to do His work as He requests us to do.

Our God is to be feared, but not with the trembling that Dorothy and friends approached the Wizard. We must approach God with awe and reverence. We must acknowledge His magnificence and bow to Him as sovereign over our lives.

God is not a facade, but Truth.

So, instead of pursuing the treasures of the Yellow Brick Road, find the treasures at the end of the straight and narrow path.

Shalom, Art
Alive in The Word
