O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you, in heaven or on earth. —II Chronicles 6:14

            There is none like You “in heaven or on earth.”  You are the only Hope that we have.  Why would we not trust in and live for our Creator and Sustainer of all things?  It is because people would rather do what they desire and not what God desires.  The pull to do what we want is strong and the devil’s dark world seeks to draw us and keep us in his dark domain and away from God.

            But there is no other Answer for us other than You.  All the ideas and gods of man are temporary and not eternally focused.  The wise man will look to God and the eternal.  His life will be one of listening to Gods’ Word and doing it.  The fool may hear God’s Word, may even be a regular “church goer” and yet does not have a relationship with our Lord, but still desires to do what they what to do.  How foolish is this!

            Yes, there is only One Lord God Almighty and only “The fool says in his heart, “There is no God” (Psalm 14:1).  Only the fool “hears these words of Mine and does not act on them,” said Jesus.  Jesus went on to say this one who will not act on His Word “is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.  The rain fell, the torrents raged, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great was its collapse!” (Matthew 7:26-27).  To hear the Words of the Lord God Almighty and cast them aside is the very definition of foolishness!

            So an individual, a people or a nation can act fool heartedly by hearing God’s Word and not acting on what He has to say.  The individual, people or nation that acts on their own Word instead of God’s Word is deep darkness— a darkness that is Satan’s domain and under his power.  That is not a good place to be.  But whoever calls on Jesus turns “from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those sanctified by faith in Me”, Jesus said.  Have you called on Jesus?  If you have not— why not?

Dear Father there is no other God but You.  Thank You for sending Jesus that I could be forgiven and be Your heir and a joint heir with Jesus.  This is truly astounding and I thank You.  May I live faithfully for You by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.  So may it be!
