It is I who made the earth and created mankind on it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts. —Isaiah 45:12
For this is what the Lord says— he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— he says: “I am the Lord, and there is no other.” —Isaiah 45:18
“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. —Isaiah 45:22
“With whom will you compare me or count me equal? To whom will you liken me that we may be compared?” —Isaiah 46:5
You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’ —Isaiah 47:10
“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all. Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity” (Colossians 3:5-12).
There are none like the Lord God Almighty, Creator and Sustainer of all things. But instead of trusting Him and living for Him the majority of people on this planet cling to their wickedness, thinking nobody sees them, but they are wrong. He sees and He knows all things. The self-centered wisdom and knowledge of man misleads them. They think they are the end of all that is important, but they are wrong. The call to them is to “Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.” Unfortunately, most won’t.
But for those of us who have trusted the Lord Jesus Christ we are to be clothed “with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” May this be so! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIpnW3rtRQ4
Dear Father, today may You be pleased to work through me to encourage someone to trust You and show forth Your glory. May it be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son, Jesus.
