GOD...and God alone!

"Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing frighten you. All things are passing. God Alone remains." Therese of Lisieux

*God and God alone created all these things we call our own,
From the mighty to the small the Glory in them all is God's and God's alone!

No matter what man may say, there is only One Creator. It is He that has made everything on this earth.
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth..." (Genesis 1:1)
It was His good pleasure to allow us to enjoy and receive pleasure from His creation.
All of it belongs to God, and God alone.

*God and God alone reveals the truth of all we call unknown
and the best and worst of man won't change the Master's plan,

It's God's and God's alone.

God is the Source and revealer of all wisdom. His thoughts and ways are above and beyond our thoughts and ways. There is nothing....nothing, that man can do that will effect or alter the plans God has for this earth. He always has been, is today, and always will be on His throne, ruling, overseeing, and executing His Master plan. He is unchanging, unshakable. This is our confidence.
"By wisdom the LORD laid the earth's foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place.." (Prov. 3:19)

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

*God and God alone will be the joy of our eternal home
He will be our one desire Our hearts will never tire of God's and God's alone.

Yesterday I blogged about C S Lewis's quote speaking of the desire that cannot be met by the things of this earthly home. That is because it is God and God alone who will be our ultimate joy when we arrive and remain in His realm, our eternal home. All of our desires here on this earth will be swallowed up into the one desire of our heart, to worship and praise our God...alone.
It is then that the longing of our soul will be satisfied.

"Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12 In a loud voice they were saying: 'Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise' Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: 'To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!'"
(Revelation 5:11-13)

*God and God alone is fit to take the universe's throne.
Let everything that lives reserve it's truest praise for God and God alone.

There is only One God who is worthy to rule, maintain, oversee, and judge the universe. That is the God who created it. He is worthy of our praise. Our truest praise. He is God alone.

Elohim - Mighty and Strong
El Shaddai - All Sufficient
Adonai - Master and Lord
Jehovah - YAHWEH- (the covenant name of God) - I Am Who I Am.
El Elyon - Most High

This God is our God. He is in control. He is carrying out His master plan. There is nothing that occurs outside of His will for this earth or for you, if you are His.

Do you know and believe this? No matter what is happening in your life right now, God is choreographing it all. He is directing all circumstances to work together for your good. No man can touch what God has ordained for those who belong to Him and are in His good plan.

“I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close." (Revelation 3:8)

When God shuts one door, He opens another. (old much quoted Irish proverb)

Your life is in the palm of God's hand. His head is not turned away when life gets tough. He is always there in the good times and bad. He is God. He reigns. Believe it.

Give Him all of your heart's truest praise today for that truth that holds all things together for you.

The words of this post come from the attached song of worship, God and God Alone, sung by Steve Green. Take a moment to listen or sing along and give a portion of praise to your God alone. It will give Him pleasure, and lift your heart.
