The Lord Be With You Today!
I am the LORD, and there is no other;
(He reminds us lovingly and faithfully of Who He is.
He never tires of reminding us of His position and title
because He knows we constantly need to be reminded.)
apart from Me there is no God.
(No other god, no idol, no power, rivals Holy God.
Although we repeatedly try to substitute for God in our lives our own control,
our own strength, our own resources, our own status and standing and prestige,
no one else nor anything else can be anything
except a worthless, ineffective idol in our lives.
There are not two equal, competing forces of good and evil in the world,
with both vying for supremacy and it being unknown which one will win.
There is only one God, and He alone is sovereign and supreme.)
I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged Me.
(Despite our unwillingness to acknowledge Him and Who He is,
He is determined to pursue us to give us of Himself
and to destroy and replace the other “gods” in our lives
that we repeatedly try so pitifully to serve.
It is God Himself Who calls us to Himself
to live a life in Him of abundance and power.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
