“This is what the LORD says– Israel’s King and Redeemer,
the LORD Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
apart from me there is no God.”
Our vision of God defines our lives.
God is Unique. He is the only true God. There is no person, object or idea that bears any comparison with Him. All other ‘first priorities’ are by comparison found to be only useless objects, worthless ideas or temporary activities that are the product of human hands and minds.
Everything we know about God has been revealed to us by Him. We did not discover Him – He found us. And the only reliable foundational source available to us is the Bible as it is opened to us by the Holy Spirit. It is the same Spirit who awakens our spirits and minds and understandings to the reality and truth of God and His great love.
As glorious and as deep as this is we need to remember that the vision and understanding we receive is limited to the level of our fallen and mortal humanity. The reality and complete truth of God is totally beyond anything that our minds can understand or express. Therefore our greatest and deepest appreciation of God will always be in our spirits when they are touched and blessed by His Spirit.
There is no one and nothing like the Lord God Almighty. And once our eyes have begun to open to His majesty, glory, beauty and love there is no one and nothing that could possibly be more desirable or such a blessing.
‘There is none like You,
No one else can touch my heart like You do,
I could search for all eternity long and find
There is none like You.’
Lord God please open me more and more to the wonder of Your glory and love. May I seek my truth, beauty and peace nowhere else. Amen.
