God is always God

We living beings are forced to take birth in this world and based on our past karma we get a particular body. Some become humans, some animals, some plants, some reptiles etc. Among the human species also some are born in a rich family, some in poor, some beautiful, some not so beautiful, some tall, some short and so on. Our birth too isn’t pleasurable. We are imprisoned in a tiny little womb of our mother for 9 months and when we come out we cry, our body is covered with blood, bile and mucus.
Our birth is painful & growth is full of anxiety. Throughout our life we have to constantly struggle for survival fighting many diseases and insecurity. To our chagrin after few years our body starts to dwindle, hair become white, faces fill up with wrinkles and one final day we are forcibly dragged out of our body and our body which remained our abode for several years are dumped into the graveyard and is either burnt there or buried on which rats, insects, cockroaches and their brethren feast.
Now just compare the life of the supreme Lord when he is in this world. He comes to this material world by his own will. His birth isn’t painful and he takes the form as he desires. Disease does not touch him and miseries of this world do not affect him. When Indra tried to inflict suffering on Krishna and his associates by pouring gallons of water from the sky to submerge Vrindavana then Krishna lifted Govardhan and held it as an umbrella to save all. Also with the passage of time the Lord does not age. Have we ever seen the picture of Krishna or Rama as old men? Never. Because they are beyond the laws of the material nature.  They are not shrouded with any material sufferings or insecurity.  And when Lord finishes all his activities then he returns back to his spiritual world. 
There are some lunatics in this world who claim that he/she is God , some advertise that they can make others God and some foolishly try to become God. So before embarking on this futile mission of becoming the Supreme Lord we should introspect and see the superiority and infallibility of the Supreme Lord.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead has no material birth, activities, name, form, qualities or faults. To fulfill the purpose for which this material world is created and destroyed, He comes in the form of a human being like Lord Rama or Lord Krishna by His original internal potency. He has immense potency, and in various forms, all free from material contamination, He acts wonderfully. He is therefore the Supreme Brahman. I offer my respects to Him. (Srimad Bhagavatam 8.3.8-9).
We should always remember that “God is always God” and no one can ever become God.
