"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth."
Look at this list. It’s not exhaustive, by any means, but it is an amazing testimony of things we can know about Who God is.
The Most High God
Lord of Hosts
God of Israel
Author & Finisher
LORD of All
God With Us
Defender of the Weak
Friend of Sinners
Full of Grace
I didn’t think of the list myself. I took it from a picture that was in one of my social media news feeds. It was one of those things that really touched me, so I saved it.
But, did I really give it a good going over? Not really. I skimmed the surface of it, said to myself, Well, that’s neat, and moved on along to the next thing that scrolled up.
Not too many days later, I remembered the list. And I heard God speaking to my spirit, asking me, “Is there anything you need today that isn’t answered by one of the things on that list that you so casually stashed away?”
No, God, there isn’t.
“And do you think that those things about Me are just neat, or are they the very reason you do what you do and live the way you live? Do any of those truths--about Me--change you?
God is so much more than a list. He is so much more than neat. He is everything.
He’s everything I need.
He’s everything I desire.
He’s everything I hope for.
He's everything I live for.
He speaks, and the earth moves. How much more, then, should He expect of the child who has a piece of His heart?
