He Reigns-Thursday Thought

Do not fear, nor be afraid;
Have I not told you from that time, and declared it?
You are My witnesses.
Is there a God besides Me?
Indeed there is no other Rock;
I know not one.
Isaiah 44:8 NKJV

Who is like God? Several times throughout the book of Isaiah The Lord poses questions similar to this; and rightfully so. Obviously these are rhetorical questions. But the same issue God’s people faced back then are what we face now. Many of God’s people are running to everything and everyone else for direction in life but the Lord. Whether we do it intentionally or by accident; we let something else take the place in our hearts that only God should hold. And God asks, ‘Who is like Me?’ leaving another question looming in our minds, ‘why would you run to anything else?’

Do you hold anything else in your life above or at the same level as Jesus? How is that working for you? If you are honest with yourself you will admit that nothing can give you the joy and peace Christ gives. To know the unparalleled love of Jesus and seek solace somewhere else is the epitome insanity. If you have been born again you have been extended the opportunity to intimately know God. Do you live like it?
