Who knew that one word would constantly be in my face? Sure it’s my #OneWord365 but ever before me, constantly weaving through my thoughts?
I woke up early Sunday morning, poured some coffee and spent time reading this goodness. Do yourself a favor and bless yourself with this post. You’ll thank me, trust me on this. The post narrowed down to this for me:
“Conscientiously “wasting” time with God enables me … to merely be still and know that God is God.”
And there we have it – the question on the table – Do we truly know that God is God?
No exceptions. At all times. In all circumstances. In everything which occurs in our lives. Every single day. Every single moment.
God is God.
We can say we do with a casualness which reveals a shallow understanding of Him. God needed to remind His people of Who He was …
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior.” (Isaiah 43:10-11, NIV)
God needed to remind them of who they were and why He had chosen them. They, and each one of us, have been chosen so that we may know and believe Him. Knowing and believing seem to be linked together, sort of piggy back on one another, if you would.
Knowing about Him is not an end in itself. Knowing Him must include recognizing His power and understanding He is Who He says He is and is able to do all that He says He can do. It involves being fully committed to Him and acknowledging He is worthy of our trust.
It is knowing which confidently rests in the truth,Â God is God.
I’m searching inside and asking myself, “Do I know and believe that God is God, in this moment, in this situation, in every situation?”
Lifting my eyes upward this morning so I can know and believe God IS God.
