God, King of Israel, your Redeemer, God-of-the-Angel-Armies, says: “I’m first, I’m last, and everything in between. I’m the only God there is. Who compares with me? Speak up. See if you measure up. From the beginning, who else has always announced what’s coming? So what is coming next? Anybody want to venture a try? Don’t be afraid, and don’t worry: Haven’t I always kept you informed, told you what was going on? You’re my eyewitnesses: Have you ever come across a God, a real God, other than me? There’s no Rock like me that I know of.” Isaiah 44:6-8 MSG
I needed to hear that this morning; “I’m first, I’m last, and everything in between.” There is certainly no one like our God. No one compares to Him. His love is everlasting. What does that mean? It outlasts everything. It will go on for eternity and beyond. When we lie cold in the ground, He gathers our spirits to live in Him forever. God is Love.
Let us keep thinking those thoughts throughout our temporal life today. He’s all we need in the beginning, in the middle and all the way to the end. Every breath we breathe comes from Him. He’s aware of what will transpire today and is there with us. He’s the light in our darkness. The joy in our sorrow. He’s the peace in our turmoil and everything in between.
He fills us up with Himself so that we are never left wandering or wondering. He lights us like a candle when we talk of Him to others. We need never fear or worry for He informs us in the secret place about what’s going on around us. We are His covenant remnant ones, those who can’t live one day without Him.
He’s our everything.
