The One Who Is …

And without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please Him, for he who comes to God must BELIEVE that HE IS and that HE IS a REWARDER to them that DILIGENTLY seek Him. ~Hebrews 11:6

Recently I shared a message with my brothers at the Colony of Mercy based on Paul’s benediction found in Ephesians 3:20. I did a journey through my concordance to see what the Bible had to say about this God who IS and was blessed with my findings. I thought maybe it would encourage your hearts today and next week.

Think with me through these wonderful reminders of our great God – the One who is:

1. God IS with you in all you do. (Genesis 21:22)

3. God IS near us. (Deuteronomy 4:7)

4. The Lord your God IS a consuming fire — a jealous God. (Deuteronomy 4:24)

5. God IS merciful. (Deuteronomy 4:31)

6. The Lord your God IS one! (Deuteronomy 6:4)

I am thankful today for a God who was for me in the past. I am thankful and encouraged that I have a God who will be for me in the future. I am very thankful this morning for a God who IS today!!!

As you look at this first list of 25 – how has God demonstrated His daily presence in your life?

The Daily Bible Reading: Psalm 12; Proverbs 13

Daily Quote:  “God is . . . “Most high, most excellent, most powerful, most almighty, most merciful, and most just; most hidden, yet most present; most beautiful, and most strong; stable, yet mysterious; unchangeable, yet changing all things; never new, never old; making all things new; always working, yet always at rest; still gathering, yet lacking nothing; sustaining, fulfilling and protecting; creating, nourishing, and maturing, seeking, yet possessing all things.” – St. Augustine

This Week’s Verse to Memorize:

26 Lift up your eyes on high,
And see who has created these things,
Who brings out their host by number;
He calls them all by name,
By the greatness of His might
And the strength of His power;
Not one is missing. ~Isaiah 40:26
