The Lord Is!
I read this scripture a few weeks back and just meditated on it. First I noticed that The Lord Is. God is everything. There is nothing outside of God. In Isaiah 45:5 He tells us Who He is. "I am the Lord, and there is none else... ...there is no God beside me. I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: that they may know me from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. I form the light, and created darkness: I made peace and create evil." Then I noticed that He is my Rock. This reminds me of the children's song. The wise man build his house upon the rock and it stood firm in the storms. I'm glad He is my Rock. Sure, the storms will still come and we may waver a bit, but we aren't going down. He's my Deliverer. How often do we need deliverance from the on slaughts of satan? But our God nevers fails to come through for us. He's always on time. But I am afraid, like Peter, when Jesus bade him walk on the water. Peter obeyed and walked but then got to looking at the waves. Do we get our eyes off the Lord and get them on circumstances? If so we are going to have to swim or drown. But if we keep our eyes on our Deliverer we can conquer. He is my Strength in whom I can trust. Oh, how feeble we feel spiritually at times. I know I cannot go in my own strength but our Strength comes from the Lord. Let's keep our eyes on Him. It is so easy to be distracted with all that goes on. We will have to work at the job of looking to Him who is our Strength in whom we can trust. The Joy of the Lord is my Strength. Are we rejoicing in Him? He is my Buckler. He shields me from the so much. We really have no idea of what the Lord shield's us from. I'm glad He does. The Horn of my Salvation. My strength! and my High Tower. My stronghold. What would we do without Him? He really is all we need! The next verse says: I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised. Let's praise Him today for Who He is and what He does! What about praising Him everyday. He is worthy. Bless His Lovely Name!
