The scripture for today is Isaiah 43:10-11
Isaiah 43:10 You are my witnesses, says the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am He: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and besides me there is no savior.
It has been demonstrated to God's people time and again that He alone is sufficient for their deliverance. There is no other power to whom we may look that can provide what God has already provided. He created the world as a sanctuary for man and a dwelling place for all of His creatures. Nothing is here by accident or chance. God designed all, demonstrating His incomprehensible power and creativity. His desire is that we "know and believe me, and understand that I am He." Yes, even today, we are His witnesses. With every breath we take, we bear witness to the miracle of life given by our Creator. With every ray of sunshine, every drop of rain, every plant that grows, we see the miracle of God. We live in the wonder of God's creation and experience the life that comes from Him alone. Our time here is limited because of sin, but our time with our Lord is unlimited because of His grace. Through the miracle of creation He made us and; through the miracle of redemption, He has saved us. There is no other savior, no other source of life to receive.
His promises to us are not contingent upon circumstances or conditions created by man. He is the LORD! Darkness does not limit His ability. He is not moved by the power of nations yet He responds to the faith of the simple who love and trust Him. Thank you Lord for being our Savior, our only Savior.
God bless you as you continue in His service.
