Paul uses verse 9 in his reasoning in Romans 9:19-21.Verse 22 is remarkable when you realise that this is talking of a day when Israel had been destroyed as a nation. The Church’s destruction or failure is no proof of atheism or an uncaring God. God calls us to faith and repentance in good days and evil.
* Father God, please teach us today from Your word, sufficient for our growth according to Your will.
“… And there is no other god besides me, a righteous God and a Saviour; there is none besides me.”
Wisdom cries out, God’s word is clear – There is no other but Him!
Why do we, God’s people, think to bend our ear to the world’s whispers, turn our eye to the bright glitter of the broad road?
Has Isaiah’s repeated focus seeped deep enough, are we hearing it, is it impacting us?
There is no other god but our God!
“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth!”
What other message is there but this?
Layered over and over, we have God calling us His people, through all the ages, to this truth – That He is the only Saviour, there is no other God. Believe in nobody else, in nothing else, no thought or word or deed. Only He satisfies, only He rescues.
“Only in the LORD, it shall be said of me, are righteousness and strength;”
This is it. If we turn from this then we are the one who looks in a mirror then turns and immediately forgets the truth.
ONLY IN THE LORD.
* Father God,
Thank You that Your word is the only mirror that always tells us the truth.
Thank You that Your Spirit is at work is us, Your people.
Please save our loved ones Lord God. Please call them, and may they answer.
And Lord, please continue to bring us toward You, each day, little by little. Make us more like You. Open our eyes today and onwards, that we might see Jesus.
There is no other god besides You, our rock and our redeemer, our SAVIOUR.
