“Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.” Deuteronomy 7:9
Sometimes, it is just that simple. We don’t need to over analyze, question or guess who our Lord and Savior is or what He promises. It is all in the name and written out for us in His word. He is who He says He is. It is as simple as that if we will trust in Him.
Who is God?
He is Truth, Light, Everlasting, Love, Deliverer, Rock, Gentle Whisper, Almighty, the Great I Am, Prince of Peace, Ancient of Days, Abba, Comforter, King of Kings, Teacher, Alpha & Omega, Counselor, Creator, Judge . . . I wish I had more room to continue. I encourage you to research more of the names of God in the bible. It is interesting, encouraging and important to understand and remember who God is. Soak it in dear friend because if we don’t cover ourselves in these truths Satan will “come only to steal and kill and destroy” John 10:10 those truths from your life, but he has no power over Christ.
“I am the Lord, and there is none else; there is no God beside me” Isaiah 45:5
Just that simple. No need to question, “For this is what the LORD says— he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— he says: “I am the LORD, and there is no other.” Isaiah 45:18
Lord, we thank you for all that you are. Please cover us in your word and help us understand and believe that you are who you say you are. Amen.
