I have been struck lately by the fact that God is unique, that He is a God who gives.
He is like no other god that has ever been created.
He is the original Creator of everything that has ever or will ever be created.
In His love, mercy and grace He gave us Jesus and Holy Spirit.
He gives us every good gift, every spiritual gift,
He gives us new mercies every day, help in the time of trouble, comfort, joy and peace as nothing in this world can compare.
He rejoices over us with singing.
He hears us when we call
He is faithful.
He answers us, sometimes even before we call or ask.
He gives us a greater grace.
He gives us life.
He gives us laughter.
He equips us.
He sanctifies us.
He is our vindication.
He teaches us what we need to know.
He shows us what we need to know.
He opens our eyes and ears to see and hear spiritual truths
He opens our hearts to love, goodness, kindness, peace, joy.
He changes us and gives us a new heart for the old one.
He gives us the gift of forgiveness.
He gives us grace/strength to face our lives.
He bears our burdens.
He exalts Himself to show mercy to us when we are undeserving.
He knows everything about us, even to the number of hairs on our heads.
He collects every tear we cry and saves them in a bottle, he knows us so intimately.
He gave us the universe, the sun, moon and stars and He created this earth to sustain our lives.
He gives us food and drink.
He gave His life for a ransom for us, for many.
He works for us when we wait for Him.
He delivers us from the domain of darkness and brings us into the light of His Kingdom.
He came to serve us, He did not come to make us His servants.
He is a just Judge
He will complete that which He has begun in our lives.
Most important of all He gives us Himself
Everything God does is FOR US because He loves us, for whom He has mercy and compassion.
There are probably more that I've not thought of, but when I started to realize how great is our God in comparison to the gods of this world, our God gives, the other gods take and give nothing back.
And, if our God gives us everything, how do we dare to spend so much time on the idols in our lives when we have such an Awesome God?
What are the idols in your life that steal your time and attention from this God, our Loving, One True God who is just waiting to lavish His love on us when we seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness (Matt.6:33-34).
God bless you on your Journey of discovery of the only & greatest God of all.
